If Christina Aguilera can wear it....

As you know, it's been a while since I've followed up from my last posted "experience". Sorry, but I'm on a deadline at work that requires all my attention. Stay tuned for more updates. Oh......and Maria, you could be right. Maybe.

Julianne Moore's Moncler Jacket

American actress Julianne Moore on the streets of New York in a Moncler Venise jacket.

Moncler Experience Number 2

Cold and sunny. A perfect day for a trip to Ikea in Burlington, Ontario. The only reaction I received was from two over-weight girls shopping in the kitchen department; both smirked and giggled slightly. That's not really conclusive feedback, but I can say that the Ikea visit was illuminating. You have to remember, Canadians dress in dreary subdued winter fashions. In bright sunlight and under Ikea's halogen store lighting, my black Moncler jacket looked incredibly shiny and slick. Unfortunately, these very qualities that I love about Moncler jackets made me self-conscious and uncomfortable around the staff and customers. It's easy to write about it now, but at the time I started to feel like I was wearing something forbidden. I can probably attribute this to the strong connection I have with women wearing these jackets. It was not the experience I was expecting, and it was a bit unnerving. After today, I have serious doubts that I can wear this jacket confidently in public.

I'm scoring these experiences as Positive, Neutral, or Negative. Today however, I'm scoring it Fail.

Moncler Experience Number 1

Today's the day that my black Moncler Venise made it's first public appearance. A simply start really. Just walking out to my car when a very nice woman approached me. She lives a few doors up from me, but I've never met her until today. We engaged in friendly conversation about the weather for about ten minutes. And that was it. Nothing. No comments.

I'm going to score this a solid "Neutral".

French Print Ad.

Another great print ad for the Moncler down jacket.

The One That Started It All

This image is part of an ad campaign for Moncler jackets. I'm not sure what year it's from, but it was the first image that started me down the path to ownership. I eventually purchased the same black jacket in Milan years later.
