What kind of clothes do you wear for winter?

I'm in an island in the middle of the ocean and will have my year-long work experience in another country. The program will begin in November, and it's my first experience of the winter months and snow. In all the years I've been in a tropical land, I'm not sure of what kind of clothing you'll need for the colder weather. Do you have any suggestions for me? Thanks :)

The top brands to look out for include Columbia, Kodiak (especially for boots), Wind River, Sorel, Canada Goose. It's not difficult to find them in thrift stores for those on a tight budget, or even the sale racks in those temporary winter clothing stores that pop at malls. I own an "normal" winter coat which is perfect until around the beginning of January when I'm required to buy a huge green coat that I got from the army surplus. Be careful not to get in too early , as it's going to become colder.
Natural materials like beanie & hats are the best choice. A soft, thin leather pair of fleece lined mittens will give you more freedom of movement and will keep you warmer than thick, inch-thick cotton gloves. Fur hats. Down coats. Find air-filled liner (kind of like bubble wrap that looks shiny) to cover to the soles of the boots. the cold dries through the rubber, especially in the case of spending long periods of time in concrete.
