... or rain or the mud/slush that lingers afterwards. Winter's coming here in Seoul, and that means lots of gunk piled onto streets and sidewalks. I don't feel like taking my Super 150's and Handgrades out for a stroll through it all, and seeing as how I often have to trek through the more hilly parts of the city (with lots of jagged concrete sidewalks, jagged presumably for traction) and possibly while it's raining or snowing, I'm in the market for some good weather-resistant dress clothes/shoes. I know Kai made mention of the Veldtshoen boots that C&J offers. Someone else mentioned that C&J also sells rubber-sole shoes. I believe Tricker's sells Veldtshoen shoes in their Country line (judging from what I'm reading on Pediwear.) I've read some old posts about Aquascutum trenchcoats vs. Burberry. I'm definitely going to invest in a heavy suit for the winter. So, after my attempt to glean information by Searching for it first (I recommend that new members try this first before asking questions like "What's the best suit/shoes/tailor" and "What does fused mean?"), I'm still wondering about the specifics. Anyone know some specific shoe models capable of handling routine inclement weather that will still look handsome even after getting roughed up, and can share some first-hand experiences? Anyone own both a Burberry coat and an Aquascutum one, and could comment on quality comparisons?
