Thanks, I like a slim fitting buckleback. Its also clutch when the belt loops are higher than the buckle. Old Blue Co has 3 pairs that look to be the same fit with some cool details. The Khaki color is perfect. They also have a duck fabric which is dif than these 2 http://oldblueco.net/index.php?act=detail&id=156
I'v heard about the rot thing but its been 2.5 years with about 4 apps on the belt i wear and its fine. I like the color i get from it more than anything iv used. I think i read that on the Iron Heart forum but the guy said it was his cutting board that got the smell & rot
Ok I went to Bloomingdales today for their 50% off sale & bought myself the PRL oilcloth jacket i wanted. Ended up getting it for $225. Their online store has it for $476 so I'm pretty happy. I also saw the purple label version ($600) at the off the rack store in Garden City L.I that was not distressed & a much cleaner look.
Sorry for the crappy cell pics
I must have been a bad husband this year... it looks like ill be buying my own RL oil cloth jacket...Probably for the better considering since i last posted the RL version I haven't stopped looking at the Belstaff trailmaster . I kinda dig that it has a few more bells & whistles like the buttons that pop
