Or, insert your geographical locale…
I have a thread going about my son’s budding aweness of girls which has lead to a discussion of “gitch”/“gonch” and various permutations.
In another thread I mention having to take the hood down off my hoodie. I almost asked if anyone calls them “bunnyhugs”, although that’s mainly a Saskachewan thing. (I lived in Winnipeg for a while and worked with some transplanted Saskachewaners enough that I will call them bunnyhugs occasionally.)
I of course wear touques and Nipigon Nylons when weather requires. Every Canuck worth his/her roadsalt has at one time or another owned a pair of Sorrells or Kodiaks.
But surely not all our specialty clothing is soley for winter? Do we have other geographical names for clothing that call us out as Canadians.
Also, in the interests of multiculturalism, Australians, Kiwis, and others are welcome to chime in with names for clothes in their places.
(I will be back after I roll up the rim and win…)
