    Hello, I am interested in hearing if you are interested in wearing a cane. This is slightly different from just "using" one. As in the history of canes, a gentleman or lady would wear a cane as an accessorie just like a hat or other attire that would reflect their status and style.

    I would like to hear if you would wear one to match your mood and style of dress, and what you would like to see in one. You can visit http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/mmh/projects to see some of my work and you will see that each cane made is an individual style. So, please take a moment to view my work and post your thoughts and likes and dislikes. Many thanks!

    I personally would never "wear" a cane (at my current age), but those do look incredible. Very nice wood, and obviously excellent carving.

    I stole a couple of my gradfathers canes. I often walk around the city with my cane and cigar and lift up girls skirts.

    I've worn my rather fancy umbrella in bad neighborhoods at night.

    Those are beautiful, but no, I would not wear/use a cane until & unless I have an anatomical reason to do so.

    Yes. When I get a little more older and it would have to also double as a hidden sword.[​IMG]

    I'm an umbrella guy, but I'm thinking about trading up to a cane. What can I say, this guy does inspire me:

    A friend of mine used an elegant black cane with a silver handle today. He was on the way to a wedding and was complete with a top hat. We already dress far to similarly, but I know he'll be happy to advise me. In the meantime, I may well borrow one from the flat I'm currently staying in

    I think owning a swordcane goes without saying. That, and taking up residence in a gothic Bavarian castle

    No, not now. When I get older and less steady on my feet, then quite likely.

    The post says "wear" a cane, the poll "purchase" a cane.

    What do you actually mean? "Wearing" a cane would actually be quite difficult considering it is not a garment: Purchasing a cane, fair enough, but you might wish to support a house plant with it rather than use it as a fashion (mis) statement, you really do not tell us when it might be of some service.

    As prepared this is a nonsense.
