Reading Mr. Perkins obituary I’m torn between the ideal and the reality. Don’t get me wrong, I own several Orvis products and like them a lot.

They’re already pretty pricey...
My personal complaint is their clothing seems to be for “portly“ folks. Yes, the fabrics are wonderful, but I swim in them.
