I really love stuff that stand the test of time.Especially clothing. I picked up this original Vintage 1920′s FARMER’S Work Jacket at the RRL Store on Bleeker St in NYC. After my purchase I thought of different outfits I was going to wear this rare piece with.I began thinking about the coat’s rightful owner.I have a real vivid imagination and came up with this story before I fell asleep after my day in the city……. I saw a man in 1925, he was 50 yrs old, lived on 5 acres of his own land he paid in full for. A small farm house sat at the top of his property, weathered but a real cozy feel. This man worked his property with his 4 boy’s 6 days a week 12 hrs a day. I visualized him wearing this coat day in and day out while he provided a good life for the people he loved. I saw him walking with his loving wife and 4 boy’s 3 miles every Sunday to church giving thanks for his simple, but totally fulfilled life. He was prouder than a peacock of his property and his family. He dressed for Sunday mass the way I’m dressed in this next run of photo’s. I put on my Schmidt overall’s, A charcoal 5 button up vest, added a Denim Blue collared shirt with White stripes, and buttoned my overall’s over the vest and shirt.I chose a Bow-Tie because they were primarily worn in the early 1900′s, and I enjoy wearing bow-tie’s. Then of coarse the Vintage 1920′s farmer jacket. I also found a pair of 1950′s original vintage work boots, I added these babies to keep my “Sunday Best” true to my imagination of the man who made this coat what it is today.. hope you enjoy the next run of photo’s…..
The song ‘Feel like Makin Love’ by the British rock group Bad Company appeared on the LP Straight Shooter back in 1975. Since then this song has been covered by many artist like Kid Rock and Queen even performed it with Paul”the voice” Rodgers. This hit remains a true staple in classic rock’s history!!!!
