Got some interesting traditional angler's clothing you want to talk about.

I took a trip on Sunday into Canterbury and noticed a shop selling Barbour so I went in and tried on a new one which was £249. My one was £100 unworn and the main difference that I notice is that the older Solway is probably about 3 times thicker than the latest offering. To say I am happy is an understatement. :tea:

Mercman,
This is how your Solway Zipper may look after about 45 years use ! I keep it in the car now and it's an old friend.

Good as new, a bit of wax and it will buff up nicely :-)

Hey RR I hope it lasts me 45 years like yours, it means I will still be wearing it aged 104... :fishing1:
