    Chore coats

    Been desperately trying to find any old pics of an old 1970's brown Lee duck 91-LJ style chore/barn coat l once owned, but to no avail. I think photobucket has swallowed them up. Such a hardy coat, really thick/tight weave/abrasion-resistant canvas, with a wool liner. Was perfect top layer for walling in the cooler months, although the brass buttons would catch things and became annoying, so l sold it on. Anyway, carry on...

    Bartles, l presume the red head is the one on the left? I say take it, if its what you want and the measurements work out. Nice patina.

    Just found the photos and although off topic, thought l'd post this old photo from 1987 or 88. Somewhere near Dobbs Ferry, NYC. Sorry about the pic clarity . Keeping it on topic, l'm wearing a pair of cuffed big E's!

    Hey Paul, l did hear of your new job and congrats btw. I used to be able to wear jeans at work many years ago, but now it's weekends only (and a more sedentary lifestyle due to foot problems make for alot less wear).

    That was where my thought process was going in regards to yourself Duke old chum. Anyways it was just a wild guess (until l see the matching trousers that is )

    Think l love that 'between the wars' era of jean/workwear so much, that l'm willing to put up with a little discomfort. Although that relies heavily on the way they are constructed, thickness of material and type and thickness of buttons and belt worn over it. But we're all different.

    @lefty funny you mentioned the pockets on the tour duck overalls, l remember them well - they were like duck waders with 2 tote bags for pockets. Nice material though.

    My father bought an old 1959 Edsel Ranger back when l was in my 20's. One big chunk of chrome and steel it was! I think it was 17 ft long and over 7 ft wide and weighed near on 2 tonnes. Hilarious when he bought it over to England, especially driving round the small lanes we have here in the Cotswolds! Safe to say he sold it fairly soon after importing it

    Daughter of Elvis. She married Michael Jackson. Jackson coat. And Michael Jackson said 'Hee hee' alot, or was it just some twisted brit tv show? Don't worry, it's just me (Doc) who's probably been self isolating for too long. Anyway, l find it amusing generally some of the names of FW products. Brown Steamed donkeys gets me every time..

    What was the FW garb you wore to your friend's funeral Duke? That ensemble looked class.

    Thanks John. Glad to know you. As a more experienced denim head, what are you're thoughts on lvc vs original? To me (and this is in no way meant to be derogatory to lvc), they are totally different beasts altogether. Which has proven to be a good thing and a bad thing for my wallet
