Black Oilskin Duster....Goth or Redneck???

I used to have a black leather duster but I sold it and I was going to buy a black oilskin one because, it is lighter weight and cheaper but would that be redneck?

I'm not sure what oilskin is, but it brought this to mind...

You Might Be a Goth Hick if...

Your casket is on cinder blocks in your driveway.

You wear black overalls and a black straw hat.

Your idea of a good time is to be up all night drinking beer and writing (poetry that could be set to) country music.

You drive a black pick-up truck.

The directions to your house include "turn off the paved road" and "look for the hearse".

You consider chewing tobacco an acceptable alternative to drinking blood/blood-colored beverages.

You married your sibling for the poetic drama.

You own black flannel shirts.

You've ever referred to duct tape as "the chrome which represents the small bit of light that strikes my soul".

You think you have a black car, but can't tell because of the dirt.

You tore your black velvet skirt hunting raccoons.

You name your child after your dog, and they're both called "Enigma".

You think the French Riviera is a foreign car, but still write poetry about how it reflects the anguish in your soul.

You find yourself watching pro wrestling and pondering how detrimental it must be to the participant's souls.

You avoid Olympic fencing because you think it involves wooden stakes (along with barb wire and a goat).

You own a homemade fur coat, dyed black.

You own a pair of black pants with a chewing tobacco 'O' ring on the back pocket.

You have both the word "howdy" and the phrase "long, dark torment of the soul" on your answering machine.

You think that Dolly Parton should be the lead singer for Switchblade Symphony.

Your favorite movies are "The Crow" and "Smokey and the Bandit".

The only reason you don't drink lite beer is because it's been months since you've seen light.

You've ever used your katana to open a bottle of Jack Daniel's.

Your belt buckle weighs more than three pounds and doubles as bondage gear.

None of your black t-shirts cover your stomach.

You realize you're the only one dressed all in black at a Nascar event.

You ever heckled a eulogy, and you were just at the funeral for the fun of it.

You've ever entered a "Howdy Doody Look-alike" contest, and lost because you were too pale.

You've ever given a date flowers that were stolen on your last nightly trip to the cemetery.

...and it's not on this list, but I've seen one that says "You sit on your front porch and shoot at the sun"

So I say thank you for the scars and all the guilt and the pain every tear i've never cried has sealed your fucking fate What did you take me for a fool? or were you just to blind to see that every effort made has failed and there is no destroying me

Hey if you decide to go back to the leather duster look let me know my old one is just sitting in my closet I havent worn it in years we'll work out a real cheap price for it....I actually took care of it so dont think its as ratty as my jacket or if your a large mammmal then pm me and we'll figure up something...and redneck versus just depends on the attitude and accessories...take me for example....I can make hot topic look uber punk with just an hour or two of tearing,safety pinning and the right attitude... :twisted:

Howdy Lil' Dark Pards!

Vachy: BRILLIANT!! Uncle Mom and Aunt Dad like it too.

Oilskin is a heavy fabric, like duck canvas that has been treated for water resistance (originally with oil, but I think they use synthetics today.) Came about as protective outer wear for trail driving cowboys. Often associated with modern Australian cowboys. That big button down slit in the back is worn open when astride a horse and closed when doing "walk about". Could be left open for adventurous encounters of the 3rd kind, but I have no actual knowledge of that area.

You could make it work if you wore it with aplomb (just what PRJ is saying). On the other hand, it may FEEL lighter, but it WILL be hot, if not hotter than wearing leather, because the waterproofing also waterproofs you against cooling off, whereas, leather is naturally porous, and will "breathe" or wick your sweat more easily.

I would at least take a look at PRJ's coat before making that big decision, if you haven't already. If you've already gone out and got that oilskin, try yelling "EEE-HAW" from astride your chopper and see if it feels good.

Good Luck!!
