What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

33°F/0°C and breezy in Iowa and layering tests begin again.
Today it's the ELC A-1 over a beefy shawl cardigan. Eastmans are not cut to layer under, but it's workable as long as I can get the cardie to button shut at the neck. The A-1 won't.

Not about to layer sweater over leather. It works with heavy cloth, but with knit you need the windbreak on the outside.

That’s a great looking jacket Cabbie ! .. I like the fact that you’re sort of wearing much like a fighter pilot did in WWII , flying around London in your own machine ...dodging enemy
machines coming at you from all different directions!
( I’ve been sitting at home to long haven’t I ?
My imagination is out of control) ;)
Thankyou
Actually it’s a lot of fun & frustration in equal measure. I try not to let any of it spoil my day... I look forward getting in the Taxi every day, it’s never changed. Unlike some of the fighter pilots I get to do it all again tomorrow...Jackets designed for cockpits work just as well in a Taxi too.

I was in London a year ago pretty much exactly and London cabbies are some of the most vetted people. They are tested by the authorities in so many ways. I took a cab from around Hard Rock Cafe to Trafalgar Square, and he told me of the delays regarding climate protests and got me there as efficiently as possible and gave me a good rate. Thanks for your service Sir, because I could not do it myself.

Look out for black ice man.
Black ice can be worrisome but if it hits the + double digits they are calling for it shouldn’t be a big issue
During the daytime hours, but I do avoid morning rides.
not sure about work, especially anything oil related that’s basically dead and probably will stay
That way barring a miracle or the Devil himself getting involved.
but nonetheless if you make it up here I’ll buy you a beer
