    I was shot at randomly today by a sniper with a paintball gun in Brooklyn at 10.00 A.M. My A.P.C raincoat got some paint on it and my Crockett and Jones.

    Rather shaken by this I started thinking... If things got really rough, like mad max style what would I wear?

    H Lesser? Tweed?

    What would you be wearing?

    Very glamorous. I always say natural shoulders are overrated.

    I'm visualizing something with a lot of moss. I assume that there will still be moss. If there's no moss then I'm not sure what I'll do.

    I'm thinking plaid flannel shirts, Levi's 501 shrink-to-fits (selvedged, of course), Alden Chukkas in Dark Brown Kuda, and, for those special events around the campfire, a Brunello Cucinelli jacket. :slayer:

    At that point I might just say screw it and give in to the urge to try a bowler.

    What's mad max? Maybe if you clarify that, I'll be able to figure out how I should respond.
