Re: Patagonia Riding Tights
Thanks, Brandon, for taking the time to respond to our inquiries. I just
want you to know that I really love my old, worn Patagonia tights. They are
so warm and comfortable. I noticed that they have finally reached a point
where they are looking pretty threadbear and I expect my knees to break
through any day now.
No matter how long it takes, I sure hope you are able to get something going
with the tights. Thanks again, and have a wonderful holiday season.
