Here's a nice photo of Lord Wodehouse wearing a polo coat, while resting. Dated January 1926.
Hate to tell you this,but -That's the original coat he inherited from the original duke.I think it's looking pretty darn good for an 80 year old coat,don't you??quote:Originally posted by Doctor Damage
This is the current (12th) Duke of Northumberland wearing a ratty old polo coat in the field. Note torn right shoulder, and distended button holes. Note wet and smelly retreivers.
Now we are talking role models. "Saint Walter" basically developed American football. In fact, he was so Trad in his thinking that he resisted the forward pass. If the coat is good enough for Walter Camp, it is good enough for every man.quote:Originally posted by Doctor Damage
Here's what appears to be a belted polo on Walter Camp, 1920, who codified the rules of football.
Polo coat accessorized with rubber overshoes and team watch cap. Vince Lombardi, early 1960s.
If by 'original duke' you are referring to the most recent 1st Duke of Northumberland (3rd Creation), then it would be at least 220 years old.quote:Hate to tell you this,but -That's the original coat he inherited from the original duke.I think it's looking pretty darn good for an 80 year old coat,don't you??
