^ Excuse my naivete, but what are hacking pockets? I've googled, them, and from what I can see, they're just slit pockets with flaps on them; is that what you're talking about? If those are special, what's the norm on sport coats?
^ I'm also really new to the idea of nicer gloves, but it seems like having driving gloves would be nifty, but an unlined pair like that would be regrettable after the novelty wore off and the cold started sinking in.
Awesome! I'm hoping for a rabbit-lined pair next, and I was a bit worried about the fur getting gross. How does the stitching feel? I've noticed that some gloves have more spread-out stitches than others (like the ones sold at exquisitetrimmings that were posted a few posts back that had quite close stitches).
