Know Your Out­er­wear

Trail Rider - - SEASONAL GUIDE -

on whether a pair was at the top or the bot­tom of the stack when the ma­te­rial was cut. When­ever pos­si­ble, try on the spe­cific gar­ment you’re think­ing of buy­ing. • Read hang­tags. Fed­eral Trade Com­mis­sion stan­dards, and some state laws, gov­ern truth in out­er­wear la­bel­ing. For in­stance, if a gar­ment is la­beled “down,” it must be down. Hang­tags and web­site de­scrip­tions also of­ten con­tain valu­able care in­for­ma­tion. • Ask for care ad­vice. Your out­er­wear will prob­a­bly take a beat­ing, and ex­tremely soiled gar­ments some­times lose their ef­fec­tive­ness. Ask es­pe­cially about car­ing for any treat­ments, fin­ishes, dyes, or leather prod­ucts. If you’re into low main­te­nance, in­vest in an oil­skin duster or jacket — all it’ll need is a good hos­ing down.
