Says the dude who wears a leather and raw jeans every fit and doesn't even look good in them. Although I see what you are doing there.

is everyone just terrible at detecting irony today? Or is meta-humor to much for SW&D right now? In case you need an explanation: people complain about raw denim and flannel fits. I am parodying this complaint in response to a picture of a dog with said items on it. Of course, you're entirely catty in response for no reason at all. And TyCoon wonders why I said the female version of this forum resembles mean girls. EDIT: Nice ninja edit

That's hilarious. Thank you for that. The picture is pure happiness. Your dog is fucking thrilled about his look

Nice. I've been working down a bottle of Lagavulin 16 lately. Prefer it to the frog you got there in terms of the peaty ones. I'm going to be really sad when my bottle runs out. I bought some balvenie doublewood (off recommendation of a friend) to divert my attention some but it's a bit too syrupy and sweet like macallan. Lemme know next time you're back out on the east coast. I missed the nyc meetup or whatever it was

Top half is pretty much perfect. Need a new black leather really badly. I haven't been that thrilled about the rick jackets i've handled the past few seasons. Love that stooges one you have. I dunno. Will have to look around. Could always go ToJ i suppose

He looks like the could handle 17cms, hopefully with a TOJ lamb moto.

Just type [ spoiler ] and [ /spoiler ] around the [IMG] tags of the picture you're quoting.

I see your APCs and J.Crew - when you're ready to step up to the big leagues, you're gonna be wearing Japanese Leepros and a handmade sukajyan

Dressing animals is just creepy, unless your the (prior) owner of Sam..

I think it's just coincidence

Yes - I tend to take pictures at quieter times, but over time you grow less self-conscious. I don't carry a tripod, so it's finding somewhere with a wall or taking them from the ground up.

Cheers - I was lucky with the fit - I wouldn't want it any smaller though. I picked up a couple of these Universal Works vests in one of the sales.

i too would like to know what is with the neckercheifs

Thanks. They looked darker on ASOS but I was quite pleased with the shade when they arrived.

Thanks.

Anyway what I was attempting was basically an English rural workwear look. From the mid-nineteenth century (and possibly a little earlier) right through to the mid-twentieth century the normal dress for rural workers in Kent (and pretty much most of Southern England) was the following:

  • Long trousers - sometimes tweed, sometimes heavy cotton, sometimes moleskin/corduroy
  • Longsleeved shirt - generally plain cotton or rough linen, and generally collarless, often over-the-head rather than a full button-through. The tattersall's people often associate with English countrywear were more for farm owners and gentlemen.
  • Waistcoat/vest - again sometimes tweed, sometimes heavy cotton, sometimes moleskin/corduroy
  • Rolled & knotted neckerchief
  • Cap (or sometimes a bowler/coke )
  • Stout boots (typically hob-nail)
Obviously in colder weather a jacket or coat would be worn over the top.

My great-grandfather was a miller in the 30's/40's and somewhere or other my mother has photos of him wearing pretty much these clothes, and even into the 1950's and early 60's pictures of my grandmother working on a hopfarm show that the older men were still wearing this 'uniform'. Obviously with black & white photos it's difficult to say what colour the neckerchiefs were, but from what I can tell red or blue were probably the most common (I'm guessing the darker colours didn't show the sweat and grime as much).
