    You might want to check the Alden thread re: NRO.

    I think that has been the typical experience for the people who have ordered Alden from them. Not sure what their excuse on this could be.

    Fine for milder winter days but not if it's below freezing.

    hey guys, sorry for the probably constantly repeated question.

    what is the durawax on the gamefair? is it different than the thornproof? is it cheaper? less water-resistent?

    having trouble googling differences.

    Durawax is slightly 'peached' cotton, it has a slight fuzz that becomes apparant as the wax wears so it visually ages quicker between waxes. Weight for weight there's no real difference in durability - so if both are 8oz they'll be pretty similar, but the thornproof in 14oz would be tougher than 8oz durawax.

    FWIW, I had to open a complaint with the BBB to get them to take a return on a pair of aldens. (on an order I had cancelled, which they decided to ship anyways 2 mo. later)

    unfortunately it seems the only time they feel compelled to respond to a customer is when the BBB is involved. I hope your situation is different.

    Received the Barbour x ToKiTo mountain parka today, size small. Fitment is spot on. I foresee this getting a LOT of use! So comfortable and smells sofa king good.

    Been wearing my Surtees for the last couple of weeks and I love the way it feels in cool autumn weather.

    We've got fall barbour stock up here in Portland. You'll have to forgive me for fucking around in the "Gold Label" Alice Temperly gear, but this poncho is toooooo good. I dont care if the thing says size 8, its 11 feet long, it transforms into a picnic blanket, and in my eyes its unisex

    ^ What the devil's going on in that photo - it looks like you're having some sort of claustrophobic fit?!
