^^^ Wow, that's nice. I didn't realize that could be done with consumer "off the shelf" stuff. And, I didn't realize that Saphir made a stripping product.

So, in another month or so I expect them to be fine.One tip for a future reader: while sitting I would put my foot on my toes and flex a bit up and down.

The material is much nicer than I was hoping for, even at the retail price point (and I got mine at a great discount).I've handled some nicer examples of LP storm system fabrics for Zegna items but figured since this was for a real "outdoors" coat it would be substantially less nice. While it's certainly a grade tougher than their finer stuff it is worlds away better than any other wool "active" jacket I've...
