DOUBLE BOTTOM COWHIDE DRIVING MOC

Damn, they are cheap now. I could swear I paid 65 bucks two years ago.

I know they´re now manufacturing in the Caribbean, so beware. The manufacturing quality in my opinion had slipped a bit, between my first pair (which were moose leather, incredibly soft, but not really too attractive), and these, which I believe I got in 2010.

I like the cashmere sweater that you posted. I'd probably need to put it on to decide, but I'd probably be more inclined to wear them with pants.

Didn't even see your post until offshoreangler quoted it.

I like the idea of a fashion-forward preppy look. I disagree with your assessment of crocodile, however. But your belt sounds badass!

Dandy, I think you'd like my Barbour jacket. But like everything else I feel like would be too generic and of poor craftsmanship for you.

NO. But that´s just me. Again, I´m not shy, or faint of heart in the fashion department, but that´s too much. Slightly too much, as Cecil´s were much more manageable, but still, too much for me.

My two cents, don´t look at me as an expert.

I haven't pressed submit order on the croc CH ones just yet, I think they're too dressy to wear with shorts.

What's a preppy fashion-forward shoe to wear with shorts, Dandy?

I didn´t know Barbour was marketed in the USA.

I´ve got a great Barbour riding impermeable, which I wear as a trench. It was a steal.

Been doing some research on the Barbour brand, think I may pull the trigger on one before too long.

Yeah, my primary jacket:



I broke it out earlier today. I like it over my Patagonia Retro-Xs.

Check the Minnetonkas which Mou asked about. Not really fashion forward, simply very, very correct and with a bit of panache. Careful, their manufacturing quality seems to be slipping (their prices have come down ALOT).

Very warm and very stylish. Looked good with a button-down and khaki cords today.

I was about to say if you would wear the shiny pair you posted with shorts but wouldn't wear Cecil's pair then I wasn't sure we could help you.

I like the jacket. I'm definitely thinking about getting one soon.
The Retro-X from Patagonia is probably one of my favorite jackets that I own.
