I've worked with an electrician a couple of times who lost his ring finger because he jumped down off of a piece of equipment and his ring caught on a corner or something, popped the whole finger right off.
Portland has a pretty mild climate by almost any reasonable measure. No, I don't think it's an oceanic paradise, but it's definitely temperate in comparison to a large majority of the States. I mean the all time record low for the place is -3F and below freezing temps are limited to a handful of days out of the year.8 jackets/coats, 3 scarves, 1 pair of trousers, 3 shirts and 6 knits. With 2 more jackets and 2 more knits arriving soon.
Don't you live in Portland reedo? I thought it was spring-like there pretty much the entire year. I still prefer A/W-wear over S/S-wear, but I get more use out of the latter than the former these days. Way more dry, temperate days here than anything else.
And I for one am quite grateful for Schneider's (typically) slim sleeves, works perfectly for my body type.
