Well, it's looking like t-shirt weather here this weekend.
70's during the day and 30's at night.
My limited wardrobe can deal with that

good looking coat. Can you wash canvas or must it be dry cleaned?


Monday is Senior day discount time at a thrift that has a couple dozen pairs of these suckers.

US Military G.I. ECW Trousers


I'll check Army Navy stores for this coat too. Oops, it a Canuck coat.

Canadian Military GORE-TEX ECW Parka 6736 size (Reg 36" chest) Made for extreme cold weather in the north.

I've had it for about 5 years and wear it quite a bit in the spring and fall. It seems to shed dirt and still looks pretty good, so I haven't washed it yet

But I wouldn't hesitate to unbutton the wool liner and toss that coat into the washer on a cold, delicate cycle.

I would however hesitate to toss it in a dryer. Air dry only.

My lil piggies can get cold in July. While I'll usually wear Austin's hoodie chic most of the time I'm prepared for our cold Cascades damp too. You try growing upm in the country in Minnesota, it's much like Wisconsin but there snow becomes ice.

That was fine for kids but not for old men.
