Question about matching gear
I think I know the answer, but I need to ask anyways.
To get the perfect size fit, I can't find a company that makes the "perfect" pants matched with the "perfect" jacket. What I mean by perfect, is, of course, size, but also color, features, blah blah blah. I know some people care about the look of the overall ensemble, I'm not one of those.
My perfect combination are the pants from one company, and the jacket from another. I do not use the jacket/pants zipper cause when I remove the jacket, I've got to reach back to unzip. But even they look like there is a standard technology there, but I'm not sure. For example, the BMW Rally pants fit like a dream. The jacket does not.
Anyways, as long it's not a hideous color match (OK, I do have my limits for fashion), does anyone see anything wrong in buying pants from one brand, and the jacket from another? Can you think of any disadvantage at all?
I'm looking for something for 3 seasons. I have a mesh jacket for summer.
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." That's why we know the earth is 4.5 billion years old, that vaccines are safe and effective, that GMO crops don't cause cancer, that anthropogenic global warming is a thing, and that sasquatch does not exist. But mostly it means that any oil works as well as another one.
