Woolrich WM FW10 - Page 18

That's kind of like a hit/miss situation with most brands really. Whenever I see a long~ish thread coming from the button I just put a cigarette tip to it and burn it down and tap it with my fingertip once the burning part of the thread gets near the button, it usually fuses it to the button and will rarely, if ever, come undone. Never ever pull on it unless you're ready to sow it back on.

It's in the 40s this week in Chicago, but once it gets colder, I'll post with an update about how warm the jacket is. Thanks again, adg
Your layering plan sounds good, I live in Toronto and also have a melton wool maine guide that I've used in winter and usually layered just like you describe only dont forget the scarf and hat, a warm neck and head make all the difference, especially in windy winter weather.

Does anyone know of a jacket that is very similar to the Maine Guide jacket but that has a more substantial lining? I really like the look of the Maine Guide jacket, especially the round collar that fades into the button area, but I want something that feels less bare bone. Also, please let me know if this question should be taken to a new post.
