    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

    APC original standard, 3 years old. check the wallet fade. What do you guys think of fit? Jcrew Shirt. [​IMG]
    That's hilarious. Thank you for that. The picture is pure happiness. Your dog is fucking thrilled about his look

    Bottom half could use some work. Shoes especially
    [​IMG] you guys asked for it, here it is
    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
    fit also looks better if you remove the dress pants, I think [​IMG]
    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
    not wearing anything of note today, but it was sunny and nice out all day so i figured why not [​IMG] first time in a while i could go out with a t-shirt and no jacket.
    Why is whodini hiding his face? also, how do you guys do that spoiler thing? when did that start?

    This is worth requoting. I don't know why but it's awesome. I think because it oscillates between the best thing ever and maybe the worst thing. The proportions are way off but somehow it just works. Or maybe it doesn't work. But it's visually compelling. I guess "yes" was the only appropriate reply, whether he meant it ironically or not.

    Nice and clean. Haven't seen you post many fits lately, but they're always very enjoyable. MoK, past few fits are looking great, like the creativity. Thanks for your input on my fits a while back as well.

    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

    Are red neckerchiefs some MC thing I don't get or is it just coincidence?

    I think it's just coincidence [​IMG]

    MoK, I've always wondered: you seem to take your WAYWT pictures in pretty public places. Do you just set your camera down in the middle of the park and snap a photo of yourself? [​IMG]

    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.

    This looks great. Wish I could find a vest that fit me that well.
    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.

    mok, that shade of blue is really great. nice pants here.

    i too would like to know what is with the neckercheifs[​IMG]


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

    MoK, really like the fit. The neckerchief is a bit off though in my opinion; then again I'm not much of a style guru

    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).

    I haven't seen many all grey fits i've liked, but this works pretty well.
