Yes, I'm sure - so they were to his/her taste, but they aren't to mine.
And all's well in the world...

Is this what you've tried to replicate on this one, Frank?


What do mean TRIED to replicate ?? Yes the side ones are a copy of the pockets from the over smock.

Hehe, I didn't mean "tried to replicate" as if it wasn't successful!
That's what, to me, they looked like; so that's why I then asked if they were in fact that very thing.

Your two 'unknown' smock I believe are both original. Both those two chaps have originals in their collections, both near/mint condition. The taller of the two have a very nice mint size 7 1st pattern which I was extremely jealous of when he showed me!

Cheers,

Andy

If I ever have reason to wear a Denison Smock, I'm 100% going to order from you Frank. Saw two being worn by the Ox and Bucks lads at Victory this year and they look superb.

Hi Frank, I've just sent you a text regarding placing an order with you, drop me a line if you can, probably better by text as wifi / 3g minimal at work.

Thanks, Steve
