As in "comfy as an …". Clapton in sunny eclectic mode. Reggae, show tunes, Hank Snow and low-temperature choogling as far as the ear can hear – "All of Me", "Born to Lose", Gary Moore's "Still Got the Blues", buttressed by the rhythm attributes of Willie Weeks and Steve Gadd.

Messrs Winwood and Macca in da house, too. So yes, you can't argue with the quality of the fabric. It's difficult to tell, though, how much is sock and how much darn.
