Re: PVC or faux-patent leather pants at Forever21

I went by the store today and the PVC style pants / leggings are no longer in the window. At least the web site still has a whole category called “patent / leather”

Re: Shiny/Pvc leggings

The US site for H&M has these similar patent leather PVC style (but I think Polyurethane coated nylon/lycra) and these look good in photos. They are in the new arrivals category as of today and as of now only appear in the plus sizes so far:

Re: PVC or faux-patent leather pants at Forever21

https://www.forever21.com/us/shop/catalog/product/plus/branded-shop/2000313466 That link is for Forever21 Plus sized PVC look or Vinyl look leggings. Those look wonderful too. I am not sure what I think about the round metal grommet circles in the side, but if the PVC-look fabric is what the online ...

PVC or faux-patent leather pants at Forever21

On my way home, walked by a Forever 21 clothing store and saw this in the window: https://www.forever21.com/us/shop/catalog/product/f21/bottoms/2000304724 Perhaps with this being featured in the front store window means these styles are at least maintaining some amount of acceptance, though not tota...

Re: Shiny/Pvc leggings

Those are very nice looking. Do you have them? Are they smooth inside and out or is it a coating of polyurethane on a stretchy lycra type fabric? Again, those look wonderful.

Faux leather leggings or PVC leggings

What brands of faux leather (polyurethane coated spandex) do you like and wear? How about stretch PVC? Which ones are stretchy and done feel like all the coating will flake off after a wash or two?

Kamik Lars

Anyone have the Kamik Lars boots? If so, how are they? Are they stiff or flexible? Lightweight or do they have some weight to them?

And yes BillP- the web site lists men’s size 13 as the largest.

Re: Anyone tried DailyShoes wellies?

Thank you for the opinions. At the price DailyShoes are, it seems the thing to do is to spend just a small bit more and buy Kamik boots instead, specifically the Kamik Olivia. The Olivia looks like the tall hunters somewhat and might be a good alternative.

Re: Tretorn Wings Jacket

Thank you all for the initial thoughts and shopping suggestions. What I am still wondering is how it is as a raincoat. Is it cotton backed? Does it have the feel of heavy PVC? Would you personally buy one? Does it compare to Stutterheim or is it a thinner and not-so-PVCish jacket?

Tretorn Wings Jacket

I saw today on the train a woman wearing a green Tretorn rain jacket. I was not close enough to tell, but from a distance it looked like a matte, non-shiny heavy PVC, perhaps similar to a Rukka style. Upon searching the Internet, I discovered it must be the Tretorn Wings jacket. Much to my disappoin...
