Well, you got us, Richard. If there's a Ralph Lauren ad and a half-century old Sports Illustrated to prove it, you've surely won.
Can't wait to purchase this outfit and shoot some squirrels with my .22!
Those kids would freeze their asses off if they went hunting dressed like that.
I think you mean a shoot, not a "hunt." the character with the dog doesn't look like he's going to either--seems to be dressed for some sort of woodland tryst . . .
I think you mean a "hunt" not a "shoot." BTW the characters posing in the last two pictures don't look like their dressed for either--more like they've primped for some woodland frolics
More nonsense. As previously stated, tweeds and the accessories are worn for estate, driven shoots. Hence the first picture is realistic, but only for a select few who still have access to or money for, such pursuits.The 1956 magazine cover is dated and irrelevant. Upland game hunting now requires blaze orange....by law. As does deer hunting. Post a picture of you with the 8 pointer...let us see what you were wearing. As for duck hunting...tweed is absurd. One wears camouflage waders, camouflage jacket etc...proper gear for cold, wet outdoor activity. The other photos of androgynous Polo kids have nothing to do with hunting. You clearly have no experience upon which to base any of this commentary and you should stick to fireplace shots of your school boy ensembles. Leave hunting wear to the real men and real WASPs
If Ralph Lauren says it's OK, then that settles it.
Main Line Sportsman - Do you really consider yourself a WASP? And if so, don't you think you have let the establishment down by dressing in camo, etc?
Yes, Ralph does know a lot.
Mainline Sportsman rules!
I like to wear a purple sweater when hunting. Very WASPy!
Richard, I do not "consider myself" all that often. I am German/English by ancestry and an Episcopalian....so you do the math.What I do consider are the following: Whether to use the Browning,Ithaca or Beretta for a pheasant hunt, No.2 or BB shot for geese, the arrangement of my duck decoys based on the wind, which Bourbon I am in the mood for,whether my 3 jacks will beat the hand of the guy across the table, which horse to bet on at the Radnor Hunt Cup Steeplechase race, the 400 or 1200 grams thinsulate waders based on the temperature,whether my lab will or will not need her neoprene vest in the duck blind,how I will cook the venison or whetehr to smoke the quail or grill them, and most importantly, the welfare of my wife and kids. In contrast, I do not spend time obsessing about 3/2 roll, Rugby stores closing ,Rep ties or pocket squares or blazer buttons.
Main Line, Just a few thoughts. 1) Show Off2) Maybe you care about those mentioned things more than you realize. You do read my blog quite often. 3) I was just picking at you! Don't take things so serious. You guys fall for the traps everytime. 4) Merry Christmas Main Line. I mean that! Even though you seek out to be critical every chance you get, I realize you sincerely love my blog or you wouldn't keep coming back. Plus, you help ad the element I so sorely seek after.
Touché, Richard. I liked the comeback! Ha. You're right in all your points. Happy Christmas, old boy. SLC
Froliche Weinachten zu Ihnen auch.Gutes Neu Jahre
Fired? That's OK -- i didn't like working in the Ralph Lauren section of Macy's anyway.
