Exact reason I got rid of my Cabourn down jacket. Felt like I was going an expedition to the North Pole every time I put it on.

Puzzled at choosing your holidays on the basis of the jackets you own.

This is the same Baddie who bought a suede varsity (in the wrong size) as an investment using a bank loan remember.

what the fuck you talking about vazza? get the facts right

i have bought another one in the right size, so i am selling one. it was a fucker here who said he wishes to pay in installment for the jacket, but flaked eventually.

the items i am selling belongs to me and my brother, which is bigger than me by 2 sizes. and people here don't make sizing mistake? come on, so many cunts out there that buy, and list the item for sale the moment they receive it. i was saying beedub should keep the jacket, for holidaying etc. who the fuck says i am buying the valdez?

Trouble with a down jacket, it's too warm for most areas in the UK or useful for just a couple of weeks a year.

Edit. Confused!

Still a tough one to justify IMO.

I couldn't justify sitting on a jacket that cost me that much to only wear for a few weeks a year. And I tend to go on holiday to places that are warm.

I often wear my adventura or valdez during winter, never felt it was too hot. If anything it means I can wear a single layer underneath, which is a god send when working in an office that has a constant inside temperature of 20-25 degrees C during the winter - it's such a joke that sometimes we have to turn our desk fans on. It certainly saves time and having to take layers off when I get to my desk Eye-wink

I will say my biggest regret was not buying the coyote fur collar attachment for mine Cry

Ordering from Rakuten, I always get letter from the post office saying a need to pay a fee – is there any way of avoiding this? Do the shops always have to declare the value? What percentage of the amount do you have to pay when the item gets caught?
