    Yeah, that was not a typo.

    Clothing. Its a tough one.

    If one goes for the camo look, one may be invited to the Beaters Shoot, but one will be excluded from polite society.

    If one goes for the high-end German techno-gear, one will not even be invited to the Beaters Shoot. One will be spat upon. And quite right too.


    Does one go for the close weave thornproof? Or the loose weave, where one can be stabbed by a knife and then shake the fabric, and there is no mark? Apart from the blood stain. Obviously.

    Knee socks with a Loden jacket? Will that mark one down as a Banker?

    Any advice most welcome.
  2. These nice people will help you.

    No, really! Just make sure you have someone versed in CPR and the crash trolley is fully charged and on standby before they give you the bill.
  3. Go for the Scandinavian get invited to both!!

    Have to say, I can not understand why the beaters on my estate (no..i dont own, just rent a farm on it) wear realtree cammo. Have seen some of the chinless wonders shooting and I think if I were a beater I would be wearing the brightest clothing I could find!!!

    I love Seeland gear, expensive but wonderful.
