How to shop for Winter Clothes
The far northern and southern countries all have four seasons. In Canada and the USA we have
names for the four seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall.
The changing weather means that students and visitors must be prepared for the seasonal
changes in temperatures. Students must bring or purchase clothing suitable for each of
the seasons that they will experience. If the student is staying longer than two months
then they should be prepared for the change in seasons.
If the student is visiting during June and July be prepared for summer, if visiting August
and September be prepared for Fall. The transitions from Fall to Winter can be dramatic as
the temperature can drop from 20 degrees C one day to minus 5 degrees C the next. So this
two month period requires students to be prepared both for Fall and Winter conditions.
In many of the countries located near the Equator where there is very little seasonal
changes and the temperatures usually stay in the tropical range the available selection of
winter clothing is usually non-existent. This can be a problem for students traveling to
the countries during the winter season. It is difficult for the students to be prepared
for the cold temperatures.
The other problem is that after the students have finished studying in the winter - the
winter clothes will have no real use back in the student's tropical home.
For the very rich students and visitors - this is not a problem. They can go to the designer
shops and pay $1,500 for boots and $10,000 for a custom winter coat and $1000 each for
winter outfits and presto they are ready for anything winter throws at them. The rich can
afford to put everything in storage - just in case they go on a North or South Pole
expedition some day.
For the rest of the world buying clothes that you really need only once is a waste of
money. My suggestion is to help a vary famous Charity organization in Canada and the USA.
In Toronto there are several "Goodwill" stores that sell used clothing that has been donated
and refurbished by dis-advantaged workers and trainees. The money from purchases is used to
fund the charity. It is an excellent organization and the price for the clothing is very low.
I suggest that students buy coats, sweaters, pullovers, pants, thermal wear, hats, gloves,
scarves and some boots from the very large and low-priced selection of winter clothes.
When the winter is finished and there is no need for the clothing you can donate the
clothes back to Goodwill - they will clean and fix anything up for the next person. This means that
you do not have to pack and take this very heavy clothing back to where it is not needed.
You can be properly prepared for winter and help an excellent charity.
In countries where the temperature drops to zero degrees C usually students from the
warmer countries have to wear three layers. This usually consists of a thermal undershirt,
shirt and sweater. When going outside students need a good outer coat able to insulate
you from very cold temperatures. When outside at zero degrees you need three layers and a
coat, hat, gloves and scarf.
When the temperature drops down to the minus 5 or minus 10 degree range then students start to
wear four layers thermal undershirt, shirt, sweater and pullover sweater. When going
outside students need the four layers plus a good outer coat, hat, gloves and scarf
able to insulate you from the very cold temperatures and any additional wind chill effect.
Remember that very cold temperatures are dangerous - you have to dress warmly.

for winter clothes. Look for the TLC Network "How to shop for the best prices" Seminars.
