    anything is appropriate as long as you layer right. Obviously if you do just a t-shirt + bomber, then you're bound to be cold.

    The lambskin is really, really tough. I TRASH my red every weekend and it's thinner and less resilient than black. No scuff marks yet. My black lamb endured me skidding down a pavement path after spraining an ankle. Again no marks. Water will do nothing.

    you guys gotta watch the numbers, rather than the size tags - we've changed size charts over time, and piece to piece they are different as well. In the real world, the difference is not even big enough to be seen; on fashion forums, a wrinkle here or a bunch there means something is 'way too big' or 'way too small' - it's a fine, fine line.
    Hard to rope in some sort of universal sizing for everything, that would take a computer and years of calculations, and any subsequent pieces would be hard to do too, since we do use some old patterns as bases but mostly formulate new patterns for each piece. We'd take a volunteer willing to compile and extrapolate or something, but I'm not really wanting to do that much work on it, nor do I think Charly wants to - there's no right or wrong when it comes to the numbers, so it'd be hard for someone other than me to ring it all up....

    FYI The TOJ1 size 48 (p2p 20,7) fits smaller than the MDR size 47 (p2p 20,5). But yeah, everybody should just shut up and learn to size up.

    Peacoat owners:

    Do you find your coat to be sufficiently warm during low temperatures (0 to -10 C / 30 - 15 F)? I'm on the fence regarding the quilted lining. Do you find the regular lining to be warm enough?

    Nah.. unless your dog is regularly pissing on it.

    If you get any stains, dirt, grime, etc. on it, I found a rag with warm water takes most stuff right off.

    The peacoat with the quilt lining is warm dudes. You will be enjoying that quilted lining if it gets that cold outside.

    Amiguous drew is ambiguous. Can you give some kind of guideline in what temperatures the quilt lining would be a better choise? In what climate/temperatures would you personally choose one over another? :)
