    I received my "Brit Dogs" wool bush shirt today.
    Wow. Seriously Wow.
    If you have the means, do not hesitate, order one as soon as you can because they are something special and you will not be disappointed.
    The materials are first class, the workmanship beyond reproach, the design and thought behind the details is inspired.
    Mine fits me like a glove, is very, very warm and as I was going over the design I just kept coming across little things that kept my smile getting wider and wider.
    The internal pocket structure, so ridiculously useful. The hood and collar so well thought out. The stitching and finish is just impressive.
    And the turn around, I'm not sure how, but it hasn't even been two weeks since I first approached Cliff, very fast.
    My only complaint is I won't be able to wear it in the summer, it'll just be too warm!

    I'm starting to sound a little bit manic so I'll go but seriously if you can, do. Ask for it as an early Christmas present and get the most out of it if/when the 'arctic' winter they're predicting comes.

    I had a chance to try the two dogs bush shirts on whilst camping with tinky pete.
    First time Id seen them, they are better than the swanndri original bush-shirts, and the lester river bushshirts sold by empire wool and canvas..

    Im just so kitted out cliff i cannot justify it at the moment.

    Highly recommended though.
