Thanks - you're probably right. I'd be happy if it was khaki - that's the colour it looked like and why I bought it but in reality it's much lighter, almost off-white.
Gents, I have heroically won a NOS Invertere raincoat on ebay. It's quite a lot lighter in shade than it looked in the pics - a creamy white colour which isn't going to be too practical. However, it fits well and the construction is stupendous so I want to keep it. The shell is 100% cotton but water beads and runs right off. This could be because of the very fine weave of the cotton (ventile or Grenfell type cloth) or it may be coated in some sort of water repellent, I...

Nothing else, just a guess. Your deerskin bag episode gave me inspiration for weeks. The world needs more characters.

Here was I thinking you spotted it here http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=197868, quickly PM'd the seller for label pics, posted them in this thread to see if the seller had undervalued the jacket before committing and then decided to buy it anyway on the off chance. My interest? I was waiting for you to start threatening bleachboy if it...
Out of interest, why do you need to know quickly?
I have Trickers Wetherby (similar to Malton but no brogueing) and they are fantastic. Commando sole and built to an industrial spec - very comfortable too. I honestly think Trickers make the best country boots, bar none. For when it's really cold (which isn't that often here) I have a pair of Filson Highlander boots, made in the USA and wool lined. Very warm and very tough. For lighter weather I heartily recommend the RM Williams Yard or Gammon boots. I have both and...
Gents, I hadn't intended to "put down" Mr Glaser or his family in any way, apologies if offence was caused. I'm in the UK so it's a lot easier for me to get my hands on the UK brands and I like to support my local industry and workforce, just as you do. I have nothing against Glaser Designs and I'm sure they are wonderful bags, it's just that I don't personally like any external logos. YMMV.

The internal logo isn't a huge deal, but I'd prefer the external logo not be front and center, because I feel like it pulls away from the bag's look. As far as the interior, I really liked the inside of this SAB. While this bag was probably twice the cost of the Glaser, I think it's a little more appealing - but may not hold up as well as the material...
