Foo - I'm in the Pacific NW (115" of pow in the last 7 days - don't hate boys!) and ride a few times a week all the way into late spring and place a season's pass on the same level as a regular haircut. Lots of good advice so far, but here are a few thoughts: - You did really well on the basics, but a performance base layer setup is mandatory as its role it to wick the sweat away so your skin stay's dry and "dry = warm." Cotton is a lousy wicking material and offers zip...

Funny, but I find a lot of the newer Isaia stuff sub-par to the older models. After a couple of years of experimentation,I found what works/what I favor and I'd say about 80% of my current closet is Isaia.

The new shoulders seem more padded and not...
A week or so ago I saw a PSA that Clad was having a post-Xmas sale on flat front flannel Incotex for $109 Figuring that this is essentially B&S pricing for a staple item, I picked up a pair and they arrived today. Since I own about 20 pair, I think I have a feel for the brand. I've got em from Italy, Romania, and Portugal, in wool, cotton, and some summer linochinos - just great fitting pants all around as long as you stay away from the super-slim ball, crushing models....
