Lovely photo. Not a car in sight!
Nothing left to prove.

Here's a Ventile anorak exactly like the Telemark ones, front pocket, hood, brass zips, drawstrings everywhere. I wear it on the fixed with half longs, argyles and a bobble hat when I'm feeling a bit retro! It could do with an iron...

I love the smock :oops: Is that a crotch strap dangling from the back? Where did you get it or is it something you have had for a long time? I think they used to be standard issue to the forces for 'adventure training' and cadets used to get gabberdine ones. Made by Blacks of Greenock as well :) My sleeping bag is a cotton Black's Icelandic.

If it is unloved as well as unironed let me know ;)
