British country clothing (photos)...

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).

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.

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.
