Foul Weather Gear--can I use [gasp] Civilian / Lands End stuff?

About to commit a sin. I hate the pretentious Helly Hansen, have you seen my Oyster Mariner lately, BS. Lest you think I'm a total hack, I spent 4 years sailing open ocean, south pacific with my parents.

Buying my own boat now, need new everything, among them, foul weather gear. Am I nuts to turn my back on the expensive, chandleries, and just get an okay, middle of the road Supplex Squall jacket from Landsend? [or something similar]

I've got 5-6 people to outfit, yes, for San Francisco bay, but don't want to empty the bank entirely.
