Is there any other coat style than the raincoat? Can you lot not just set up your own sub forum rather than bringing raincoat crap up on a daily basis? Am I the only one around here that's sick to death of hourly "which raincoat" threads popping up? ^^^Good advice paraphrased from poster number 3 on this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=196727 In slightly less aggressive news, the search function is quite useful. Personally I use an Aquascutum...
