The parka started out as a hard-working coat for rough climates. Here it is again, working overtime to meet the demands of a versatile wardrobe. A light, quilted topper can keep you warm on a cold workday morning and then moonlight over your partying clothes at night. It looks terrific tossed over a dancy black catsuit. Good job.

Don't be fooled by the string of Indian summer days we had earlier this month. The days have gotten shorter. Leaves are falling. Winter is fast approaching. dudi And the burning question is: What will you be wearing? This is not as obvious a question as it seems. Sure, you'll put on a coat when it's chilly. Maybe a hat or scarf or a pair of gloves when it's really cold. But this winter, being warm is only part of the goal when dressing for the out-of-doors. As the weather turns colder, what you wear is also about style, luxury and making a statement.

Whether you're planning to hit the slopes to ski, snowboard or simply be seen, you'll find plenty of choices this season, from the classic, high-end looks of Bogner to the hard-edged, alternative looks of relative newcomer Sneaux.Color is important, as always. You want to stand out against all that white, and the best route is with bright colors, although neon is still to be avoided.Patterns are as traditional as Fera International's Nordic snowflakes, edelweiss flowers, reindeer and other alpine motifs or as unusual as Bogner's Asian-influenced "Pagoda Power" looks.

OCEAN CITY - Alice and Jourdan Kilgour call it "our reward," these slow, frigid days when the couple often winds up on a Boardwalk bench, a front-row seat to watch the inlet meet the ocean. Not that the Kilgours, a pair of semi-retired 60-somethings, don't love the beach during the bustling summer, or in the fall and spring when the tourists and the condominium owners still flock here. It's just that, this time of year, people feel like they have the place to themselves. "We walk the whole length of the Boardwalk, from the inlet to 20th Street and back again," says Alice Kilgour.

If this is your year for a coat-buying expedition, say mush and go.The hot coat look now is borrowed from arctic explorers and glacier climbers. Call it a parka, anorak or storm coat. It has to say warm, tough and trendy.The familiar storm coat has been pumped up a few degrees, sort of an L. L. Bean-designs-for-Barbie style -- a younger and more energetic point of view. That means more color, a harder, slicker finish and exaggerated details. The hottest cold coats come in emergency squad yellow, traffic cone orange, neons, or sparkly fabrics -- sure to be spotted by a rescue team or fashion watchers.

The scouting has been carefully completed some days before and the blind set for the morning hunt, with the sunrise at the back of the shooters and the decoys spread in an arc opening away from the blind. The field of fire is west across a small bay from a long point.If the wind stays from the east, the first two hours of light will hold promise, and in the last half-hour before first light, all seems in order -- except for the trickle of cold water spreading through your socks along the arch of your left foot and the cold dampness spreading across your buttocks.

DALLAS -- Cable television has grown so big, so quickly, and so broadly, that Charles Dolan, a card-carrying pioneer, falls somewhat short of being designated a visionary.What, if anything, about his industry has turned out differently than he imagined 10 years ago?"Just about everything," said the chairman of Cablevision Systems Corp., who founded the first big-city cable system, in New York City in 1961, and the premium service Home Box Office.It's the same for Bob Pittman, Kay Koplovitz, Robert Johnson and Ted Turner.

Shopping for snow clothes is a lot like shopping for a sound system: Both involve myriad decisions.How many speakers? How many pockets?A tape deck? Taped seams? A multidisc player? Something multipurpose?Sound systems come with owners' manuals and directions. Snow clothes do not. And in today's high-tech clothing industry, manuals -- even maps -- would be nice.Try finding your way around a jacket, for example. What's that extra piece of lining hanging from the waist? (A snow skirt.)Why are there zippers in the armpits?

Never mind that the nearest fresh powder is miles away.These days, you needn't travel farther than the local movie theater or shopping mall to see an avalanche of bold-logoed parkas, fleecy pullovers, retro-striped sweaters and down-filled vests.Clothes designed for slicing down ski slopes and scaling mountaintops have taken urban fashion by storm.Street kids are shelling out for North Face jackets and Timberland boots, and fashion editors are scooping up Patagonia parkas to wear with their Prada pants.

But when the sun goes down -- whew."
