Gwerty...The condition of that jacket is called "tattered chic"...about the same condition of coats worn by the unfortunate and homeless street people I see begging with paper coffee cups for "any change,mister" on the streets of Boston,here.If you've got "wellies" on,though,'tis absolutely charming! Along the lines of...if you're nutty as a fruitcake,but are short of cash,you're crazy...if you've "wealthy",you're eccentric.

Very refreshing!

Excellent photographs.
The first batch are the most representative I would say.
The second lot are a bit more 'dressed for the part' - there's quite a lot of new looking clothing there. The Guardsmen look a lot more more relaxed and natural.

Most of the Wellies being worn are 'Hunters' I'd say. The English classic.

NZ Bespoke Boots

Hello there
I had some boots made whilst in NZ. The company was called the Lat Footwear Company and although still in business now its all bought in ready made. In 95 when i purchased mine they made their shoes in Dunedin and were genuine quality. I have handmade Oxfords, Brogues, boat shoes and Boots from them..

I'm pretty sure the Last Footwear Company is in Christchurch. Dad has a pair of their boots; while they are of very sturdy construction, I thought the look of them very much suited the outdoors and not so much the indoors-looking-like-the-outdoors. Of course, I have not seen many examples of their work and defer to Sir Royston's opinion.

Doug, Hello. hope you are well. LFC may well actually be based in CHCH.. but i do remember they made their bespoke items in Dunedin.. sadly, as i mentioned it seems they have no ceased bespoke production in favour of imported items.
To all, I hope that Doug will agree on this point. There were quite a few NZ clothing etc. companies whom always made their products in NZ and it was always a pleasure to support them.. however it seems that almost all are using imported goods nowadays.. very sad

Many still manufactur their own items ... it's just that they do so in China. Icebreaker is a prime example.

Now these photos are the same group as above, but dressed for the after-shoot dinner (i.e. piss-up). Lots of hard-core "squire" stuff going on here. Note the clashing colour & pattern combinations that country Brits put together without the slightest sense of irony...

Ok, I think we need to arrange one of these outings.

Don't think we can manage it in England. But let's do it here in the States sometime.

It looks like an amazing time!

A photo shoot maybe....I'm a scared a guns - LOL:icon_smile_wink:

The Sartorialist might be a good contender for the F-Stop work and their is always plenty of room for well dressed spectators at this sort of event I believe.

Do we have some interst here?
