Lovely

Tell me about wearing double cuffs
I don't swim. I can swim. I just don't have much cause to do so in the normal run of things.

This was in Nova Scotia (New Scotland) Smile

My cousin got it second hand during the 50's and was used at the cottage during the summers.  His daughter was still using it up till the mid 90's. It's been sitting in the shed until  I carried it out to test washing my jeans. I was amazed when i plugged it in and it still worked.


I like its logo, should be on a shirt



outdoor drying was still required

Another few months and a wash on the Warehouse.
I haven't worn the FW 47 much at all since I started on the Warehouse.  They've been in need of a couple repairs which I finally got around to doing and then gave them a wash.  Sewed a patch in the knee which looks decent enough from the outside and pretty shit from the inside.  Also tightened up a couple of the button holes.  Will see how it holds up.
