The Spyder stuff that I have is IMO pretty high quality, but it's not for everyone. The styling is definitely a little more of the traditional european/race type stuff, but some of it is going to a bit more "modern" style. But really you're the best judge of whether it looks good or not.
I have a coach's (knee length insulated) coat and a quilted Team Canada "insulator" jacket w/ hood. They're both great for what I bought them for, but they're not my go to choice for everyday skiing. The insulator jacket is great, nice and warm while still being reasonably lightweight - not the most breathable, but it's not designed for that. I use it for part street wear/part ski wear - either on its own or under a shell for a particularly cold and windy day.
The coach's coat is my favourite piece of winter clothing probably. Makes me look like a racer parent (albeit still a little too young for that - thankfully :P), but I don't care. Incredibly warm, it's great for wearing to and from classes in the winter (my university tends to get very windy in the winter, and I live 15 minutes or so from most classes), and the extra length is great for keeping my legs and other parts south of the equator from freezing solid. It also has enough pocket capacity that I could stash enough supplies to wage a guerilla war somewhere.
Having said that, my primary choice of ski outerwear is still a lightweight shell with layering. But if you want an insulated jacket, Spyder is well worth a look, and if you want race gear, it's hard to do better.
