Actually, no, it is not. It is currently 47 degrees Fahrenheit in the City of Angeles, and surely temperatures are much lower everywhere else. Personally, I love coats and jackets, but where to find one that does not make you look four feet wider than you actually are, or about to embark on an Antarctic expedition?
