Re: hunter boots made from scotland label

As far as I know the only Hunter boots that were actually made in Scotland were the ones that had the old-style "Gates Rubber" label (roughly before 2007 as I got my first pair of Hunters in the fall of '07 and they still had the old label, but they were too narrow in the calf so I exchanged them fo...

Great clip. Anna Kendrick looked so hot in her yellow raincoat, but then again, she'd look gorgeous in a potato sack, so...

Re: opal stutterheim raincoat vs. aj group opalo

yes, they are the same material (which makes sense, since AJ group manufactures both coats). But in my humble opinion the Stutterheim is tailored better, for a more comfortable fit, hence the higher price tag.

Awesome clip. I nearly came in my pants when I saw the first girl with the long clear raincoat & the glossy black Hunters.

Re: Ladies Day - Aintree

I've always wondered about that myself. Whenever I see a new shiny raincoat on sale in stores, going all the way back to 2003 they always sell out within a few weeks, but I never see anyone wearing them, with the exception of a few older, well to do women wearing the pricey Jane Post "princess" slic...

Re: Burberry pvc mac

Totally bummed. Went to Burberry in downtown Chicago. Tried on the navy laminated cotton trench in a size 52, way too small. They estimate a 56 would be my best bet, but it's not available anywhere. Looks like it wasn't meant to be... Thats a shame, sometimes life sucks Eh, first world problems. Or...

Re: Burberry pvc mac

That being said, I REALLY wish I could afford that blue laminated cotton trench, or even the nova check one, to go with my umbrella & wellies. Seriously considering spending my entire bonus this year on one of them, if they still have my size available come April.

It might be a little pricey, but Barbour makes quality clothing. I'm a big fan of their wax jackets.
Barbour is great, and not nearly as expensive as Burberry...a much better buy.

Re: Is it 'gay' for a man to wear shiny rainwear in public?

Just last week I wore my shiny new Stutterheim "Opal lantern" red & white raincoat with matching glossy red wellies during a few hours of drenching rain in downtown Chicago and no one batted an eyelash. And I got lots of compliments from ladies on my ensemble.
