I think 'duster' must be the US term as they are commonly referred to as 'oilskin' in Aust as teh others have said. Maybe it is because it doesn't rain a lot in Sth Australia but I cannot remember seeing a leather one, they are usually cotton canvas. Driza-bone appears to be the most popular but a few companies make this traditional style rural raincoat. I am sure oilskins would have been used around the world, are they 'barbours' in the UK? You also see motor cycle...
No one has mentioned the stereo equipment: VAF Research and Krix for speakers. Redgum and Burson Audio for amps etc. I though Fosters was one of the things we exported along with Rolf Harris, Germaine Greer, Kylie etc. I have found crown to be drinkable on a hot day!
PM and payment sent re the HB grey trousers.
I was looking at the 'Silt' today. They appeared more grey than chestnut, in terms of the usual RMW chestnut. Trapp describes them well, not a suede as you would usually imagine it, rather a much finer 'nap' if that is the right word (I am no expert). Somewhat distressed and a really nice soft supple leather, not as rigid or polished as the standard leather. I thought they would go nicely with indigo blue jeans.
I'll add my vote for Pediwear, they are very good value. There are also some great bargains and sellers on this site.
You look great in yours Sander. RM Williams have made moleskin 'jeans' style for decades. I have red ones like yours and the bottle green also. Have not seen them in the shops for a while now, just the blue and beige. No turn ups on these as they are jeans style. they have been very durable, mine are over 12 years old, if not 15. The green ones got most use so became a little faded and are now for gardening, indestructable! Uncomfortable!!!! They are beautiful...
Clint, how's the fit on the dk brown 9.5 acquascutums? You mention the other 9.5 are too large for you. would they fit like a 9F? thanks
I have a canali proposta jacket, picked up second hand, same feature. Fits well in mosts ways but lengths extends almost to finger tips. anyone remember when this was teh fashion?
There is an Australian company called Waproo. They have dozens of colours and shades of reasonable shoe polish at AUD 8-9. You could try googling them if you want to go to those lengths. I reckon they could come close for you.
Canterbury does have a website, a UK one in fact, I just checked by google. it appears to have online ordering. Their gear is generally well regarded here in Adelaide where they have a specialist shop also. sorry not clear about how to paste the link directly http://www.canterbury.com/webapp/wcs...10051_10002_-1
