I got to wear my new Arborwear shirt at the sawing project and for those that have not tried their product i will say , great quality and good looks . It is probably one of the nicest shirts i have ever bought. Their promo code is still on for free shipping.

I bought some socks last month from Arborwear. I do like me some good socks, and these, made in Vermont are the best I've ever worn.

I have had one of the jackets for years. It is awesome! Lightweight, good mobility, and warm. I have a terrible sock problem. That will be my next purchase. Thanks Jeff ( I think) Brian

I got a couple pair of the Darn Tough oatmeal. I like oatmeal.  They may have to come up with a darn tough grits to entice the southern members.  Tammy and I are hoping to stop by thier store on the way to the Logrite Tools open house. If I do, I'm getting another pair in the lime or Olive.

I discovered just a few years ago that it PAYS to buy a good quality sock versus the cheap package socks you find in the stores. I found the tube socks like I uses to wear, came in like packages of 6 pair or so, actually only lasted 3 or 4 washings before they would start getting holes in them. While good socks cost a but more, they last a whole lot longer, stay on your feet better, and are much more comfortable.   I've got this saying, I don't know if I've ever related it here before.  If I had a bunch of money, enough to consider part of is as disposable income that I could use on a luxury item, it would be on socks. I love a brand new pair of good socks. I would have a new pair on every day! I've given up on that dream, but a great pair of socks that lasts and lasts is a suitable substitute!

Good socks are a must. BUT they are not cheap. I wear 2 pair of socks if I have my boots on. Yes,summer time too. A kinda thin pair and than a winter pair. I am like Jeff,I have some money wrapped up in my socks. I am not bashful about getting rid of a pair of socks that I do not like.

Socks are next for me and another shirt but they are just too well made and look too good to work in. if i came home with pine tar and grease on one of these shirts it would not be a happy time with my wife.

Hey Slider, I was also in Georgia for the Project, and thought you looked especially well tailored - yet rugged.
Couldn't figure out why, till I spied the Arborwear logo on your shirt.
Ahhhh . . .  that's why. (My wife thought it was the aftershave, you smoothie.)
;D
I've worn an Arborwear canvas coat for about four years, and it was given to me as a hand-me-down from my son. He's 6'8" now, and outgrew it after quite a few years of tree work and helping me sawmill. It's wearing really well, and may outlive me.
However, it might not ever make me look as ruggedly handsome as that Slider in his new shirt at the Georgia Project !

I have been wearing Darn Tough socks for a few years now, long enough to wear holes on two pairs. Both pair I returned to the store I bought them who replaced them no questions asked. I bought another pair each time.
Good socks make happy feet!

I'm interested in the briefs. Anybody tried them? Does the elastic hold up over time? Those that eventually become loose fitting are worthless.

I wore my new Arborwear cap to a charity skeet event today and i will say no one was sporting a better looking cap . There were over 300 people there. It's obvious that i am having fun with this but i like quality and don't mind paying for it.
