The toughest of conditions....
Jun 01, 2017, 13:11
...said the label..

Was searching for a decent but reasonably priced outdoor jacket.

Found the 'Arbroath' jacket on the rail in one of my local farming suppliers.

Asked a sales assistant if it was water proof. Certain to be, he said, then read what it said on the label.

'With exceptional durability, you can assured that this quality product from Portwest will with stand the toughest of conditions'.

Yes, but it doesn't say that it's waterproof does it?

I'll look it up on the net he replied and disappeared into the office.

Five minutes later he reappeared and told me it was only showerproof!!

So much for the toughest of conditions! eh!
