"Yes" to the Bean boots. Mine are nearing the 20 year mark and are well past time for refinishing (waiting for the Spring). But with a nod to fashion I think Ralph Lauren has done well with the boots being supplied to the Americans in the Winter Olympics. AE was contracted to make them, and they're very much a homage to the prototypical American red-laced work boot.I feel your pain. We got 5 plus inches north of the city. Bean boots, sweater, vest and Barbour was the proper attire this morning. After paying for 4 years of college, it was great to see my son using the snowblower at 7:00 this morning before he left for work. The coffee tasted better.
And I wilt at 25C (77F). A great many on this forum prefer lower temperatures on sartorial grounds alone. Momsdoc sets a great example.I would be wearing traveling clothes and planning my escape. There is no way that I could live in a place that routinely receives snow. Even once or twice every 3 years is too much for me. It got up to 73 degrees today and it was still too cold for me. I friggin' hate winter.
