Sierra Trading Post used to be ok but since they’ve rolled under the same company that does TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, and Home Goods a lot of the items they get are lower quality made specifically for their stores. Like they do at outlets.
I have a whole set of "working on shit" clothes that don't matter if they get full of grease, oil, paint, tore up, whatever.
When they're so shot as to be unwearable they become grease/oil/paint rags, the next worst clothes become working on shit clothes, the level above those become everyday clothes, and I'll pick up a couple pieces of "keep this one nice" clothes to fill in the whole order from the top and work down again.
Yep. I'm the same way most of the time. Farriers use a functional apron, but for me, around the barn, it's mostly keeping my upper body free from horse hair. The apron isn't going to keep mud from the horse's feet/legs off me.
At the barn, when I'm grooming the horse(s) I'm in jeans, and everything on my upper body needs the windbreaker style nylon, and to be zipped up or it's a disaster. People with shedding pets at home have nothing on horsehair.
