I'm having trouble choosing a pair of Trickers. I've got it more or less narrowed down to two. Which is more likely to become a dress-casual wardrobe mainstay?   The legendary country Stow (in acorn, I also like the navy but blue, I think, is an awkward color for shoes if you wear jeans).   Or the unusual, sleek city Chepstow jodhpurs?

A well placed thumb quickly guards against that. As for the warmth, I'm sure you'll be fine. With Gore Tex backed with Coreloft you'll be able to wear the jacket over a Tee shirt into the 40s and a sweater into the 30s. If you plan...
However it is to happen I highly endorse getting an Insulated Field Jacket. Maybe sell some extra stuff on eBay. It's easily the most crucial and revered article of clothing in my wardrobe during the times when I use it.   I wear it in all temperatures/(informal)conditions below 43 degrees. Nothing has yet to stain/hurt/tear/mess up whatever proprietary weave of nylon composes the shell of this jacket. I will admit, there is some collar fuzzing due to my beard. Not a big...
