After looking at Jen's New Year's Pictures, I noticed Dad wearing a coat wayyyy too close to a ski coat I've owned for quite a few years. You be the judge (it is slightly different, but when I saw it I thought "Wow! That coat looks familiar!").
A picture of my coat is first, then see dad in his coat below (from Jen's page: http://nycskousens.blogspot.com/2009/01/happy-2009.html).
