Seriously does anybody use stuff like this anymore? If you live in the SF Bay area and want it, I can leave it out on my porch for you to pick up.

I would love to make those threads my climbing uniform. Proud.

I wouldn't love it enough to drive to Millbrae... but still, the "classy and timeless" look would boost my climbing abilities I'm sure of it.

^^^ Vitaley, you look pretty slim in your photos, I thought that size would be just right.

But Hey someone reached out to me by PM that they want these items. I'm so glad.

Those knickers are The Bomb! I'd make a special drive to SF to pick 'em up, but it's gonna be another few years before I fit a sz 30 waist...

Wool knickers, wool knee socks, fingerless wool gloves, wool balaclava, rag wool sweater.
Done many miles on foot, ski and thousands of feet on rope in that bullet-proof costume.
Definitely Rad Trad!

True confession: I have owned and worn knickers. Very functional, and dare I say stylish!
