Jack, I will admit the "LTC" ads are a bit over the top with foolish use of props etc. However, she does carry the wellies Ron is looking for and has a nice selection so he can try them on rather that ordering from the Net and finding out they don't fit just right.
BTW her first LTC was in London when she lived there with her family, so I guess she has the cred to call this one the same.
She also does carry alot of British and European clothes etc that are very hard to find here in the States. So, if you are looking for a pair of Purdey plus fours and a tweed jacket and cap to hit the high pheasants at some trumped up " English Shoot" this is the place to go. Believe it or not there are some of us Southern yobs that have heard of England, some of us have even been there.

I hesitate to mention for fear of ridicule and shame that Sierra Trading Post currently has a nice pair of Barbour wellies for only $65.
I hope you haven't discussed them already too, and I missed it. LOL

I'm not buying it.

I don't care where those people are from, they definitely don't get it.

Furthermore, all of those goods are available from a multitude of sources, including Staffords in Georgia.

I hear you. Her ads are a bit sad. They actually don't do justice to her store. She has it set up very well, but it is for the "city" person looking for something to wear on that one shoot or quail hunt etc.

I have shopped there on several occasions because she has the best Barbour selection in Atlanta as well as Purdey. Purdey makes some nice shirts.

Atlanta is definetly becoming more urban, but it is still a far cry from having a true urban population IMO. Needs much more gentrification in other nieghborhoods aside from the few regions in the north.

I am always surprised that given the traffic down there, that people aren't gentrifying quicker. Course you really don't have a CBD like the loop so it definitely complicates things.

You guys solve your water issues yet?

lol...I'll stop by soon Todd. You're right about liking to try on a boot prior to ordering. And I never tuck my corduroy cargo pants into my Gokeys...lol

This is a tough one for me. I loathe the poseur atmosphere and fake outdoorsy models. On the other hand, I'm willing to support any business willing to stock arcane, high-quality equipment. It has to be a labor of love to carry $400 rubber boots and 75-year-old technology in outerwear in the U.S.

So, if the LTC had a branch in Tucson . . .

I think Barbour still has their refurbishment service for really tatty jackets.

Yes, they still offer that service. I sent my Bedale to New Hampshire two years ago for a re-proofing. Twenty-eight dollars, and it took a while to get it back, but it was like new when I finally did get it. Last year, I did it myself. Took about 3 hours, but it turned out great.
