    If i actually managed to save enough money to restore it does anyone have an educated idea of how long i'd realistically have left to enjoy my 92 Saab T16S on the roads?

    I'm really not engaged in the car world these days but everything i read sounds like we're heading to hybrid/electric or new ultra low emissions only sooner rather than later.

    Pisses me off as this is the newest car i've owned but that won't mean didly when it fails its next emissions test.

    Ironically given Scorsese's recent comments I felt the same watching The Irishman as I did Avengers Endgame - like I'm watching a lesser version of a film I've already seen.

    Great acting, very well made, but the CGI, De Niro narration and played out soundtrack irked me.

    Thread dredge.

    Anyone training MMA on here? Not entirely sure why but I fancy giving this a go in the new year. Looking for somewhere to train either close to Clerkenwell or south east Sydenham way.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks, I'll keep looking into it because I do like a made to last product.

    That's a very good point. Like my old car I'd sooner not drive than buy another "eco" car and stick mine in the ground.

    Plus it has a Zegna wool interior so that should get me bonus points here?

    @kboy not a bad shout. I've got a Pilgrim Surf Supply parka that i stick my Arcteryx Atom under to warm it up but i tend to find layering stuff particularly with hoods a bit of a faff and never feel that warm. The Finisterre or even something like a Manastash gorilla jacket might work though.

    @JB thanks again for all the good info. I'm a bit of a minimalist so tend to do a lot of research before buying, i'd definitely consider buying used. Not heard of Ventile before, looks like just the ticket but half way down page one on Google led me here which is kind of at odds with how i'm trying to purchase now

    Might look into the more eco option mind!

    Cheers both. Yes Everlane and Finisterre both have good green credentials so i just wanted input on the quality/design. They're both made in Asia so i may check if Everlane ships straight from the factory otherwise that's a beefy journey to get to me if it's coming from a US warehouse.

    @JB, you're NY based? Guessing there's good options for domestic made garments. I struggle with the UK, not the biggest fan of Sunspel and even half of there stuff isn't made here.

    I'm on the lookout for a insulated winter coat with a bit of tech but would prefer not to go the Arcteryx/Patagonia route and get something a little more style orientated. Beams are out of my price range and Norse look to me like overpriced Carhartt so if anyone has recommendations i'm all ears.

    Anyone got any experience of Everlane clothing? Some of there stuff looks a bit less branded than Finisterre (a good thing for me) but i'm not sure how it measures up in quality.

    Looking for at both for well designed ethical options.
