Clothing...

I'm a practical guy about clothing. Wranglers, uniform boots, sweatshirts, flannel ... I like to be comfortable, and I'm a cheap sonofabitch about clothing. $60 for a pair of Levis? Screw that; I can buy three pairs of Wranglers that fit better and last longer for the same money. That said, I am willing to pay for durability.

I somehow got on the mailing list for Duluth Trading. A lot of their stuff looks like it's pretty solid, and the "no crack" shirts are damn near designed for IWB carry. Anyone ever bought any of their stuff? Thoughts? I need a few things.

I haven't tried their shirts, but I've bought a fire hose ballcap from them and it's excellent -- the color has faded a bit from Florida sun and being washed, but no real signs of wear.

I also have a pair of their waterproof work gloves and they're also quite good.

Awesome, thanks Erin. Fade I can deal with (and rather expect), as long as the material holds up!

I know a handyman who got a couple of pair of their jeans last christmas , they are holding up well for him doing general carpentry, masonry , ect..

Zer,

Their pants are literally all I wear and the shirts hold up at least as well if not better than Carhart and Columbia.

I was drooling over some of their women's line myself a couple weeks ago. Haven't bought any yet....

Oh, you got on their list, too? The catalogs are the only ones that didn't make the trip to the recycle bin in my house... :)
