I wear these leather hunting boots (with waterproof lining), and save the G&Gs for indoors. Dress the part with a heavy wool...
I'm looking for a proxy who can snag one of these Brooks Brothers Three-Button Plaid Sack Sport Coats in 38R from a local BB store (that size is not available online), and mail it to me in Canada (marked in a customs-friendly way). PM me. - Mike
