    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It's not a serious winter coat, not so warm - the padding is quite thin and it fails miserably in rain and snow. The one you posted (heavy cotton moleskin) is probably the best version, though. The cotton/nylon one is even thinner

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - the Lad Musician ones with thinsulate lining are warm and water resistant. Attachment is another option but not nearly as warm and functional

    The design on that Rick bomber is absolutely perfect and it pains me the quality is not up to snuff. Great for fall/warmer climates, though

    Looks fine--what is it you like about it?

    Boots are pretty fug (maybe OK minus the duck boot part) and you'd prob get NEG REPPED for posting those on superfuture

    Plain toes and/or a boot with no natural/brown midsole

    Is this a bad photo or are these actually plastic? Jodpurs are pretty cool tho

    Thanks. That's sadly what I figured.


    I can second this. Lad thinsulate coats are surprisingly warm.

    I need to stop forgetting about Lad Musician. Seems really solid

    Yep, I probably own more Lad Musician than any other brand. Fit is always spot on and construction is very solid for the price.

    If you're in the states, snatch it up while the dollar is strong!

    My Loake jodhpurs might be my favorite footwear pickup in the last year and a half. I've been considering MTOing a pair in light suede from Carmina.

    They are actually described as "Cork Leather"


    In my experience, sizing is true to your usual size

    That's a little too much of a markdown for my taste for being NWT.

    Heels just a tiny bit higher than I would wear but get the boots definitely.
