With the elements still playing havoc in the mid-season change over, it is important that we do not neglect the need for optimum warmth – in favour of meshed jersey. Hence the reason why this weeks issue of The Rail utilises the capacity of an ultra light jacket as its main point of call. Teamed with a sturdy pair of boots, thick denim and the lighter (but equally pleasing) crew neck – this ensemble reflects not only the erratic nature of the corresponding climate, but also the need to be one step ahead.
