    Some time ago I promised one of our mods that I would produce some good links for "how to wear British country clothing". Having failed to do that, here I will post some random photos I've encountered during my travels across the internet.

    These photos provide excellent examples of how middle-class Brits wear their country clothing when pursuing outdoor field sports. We will see many waxed jackets, tweed breeks, and modern "Gore-Tex" shooting jackets in action. As I've said before, I used to subscribe to The Field, a stuffy magazine devoted to British country life and sports. It was well-illustrated with genuine country folk doing their thing and the photos posted below are authentic.

    Once the outdoor photos are posted, I will post some photos of people getting ready for the post-shoot dinner and festivities.

    Enjoy!

    PS: What won't be seen are the rural working class serving as beaters, etc. It would be nice to have some photos thus, but I simply don't as yet.

    These photos show a bunch of Guards officers at a shooting event (can't remember which regiment).

    No action photos or pics of harvested birds? Good pics though.

    DD: Wonderful photos. Thanks for posting. I like how they all wear ties, and note the tie bluge on the fellow with the red crewneck sweater.

    A well turned-out group, but I didn't see any birds.

    Doc, again, very nice of you to do this, many thanks. The photos are wonderful. I remember going hunting with my dad and his friends and their sons as a kid - but it never looked like that - LOL. I don't think 1950-60s Ohio had much in common with those Guards. Although, now that I think about it, the one woman in the photos does remind me of my mum. Thanks again.

    Yes, please. It seems I never get out to the country anymore, even just to walk the fields - so your photos would be appreciated.
