Title: correct attire
Post by: MikeN on 13.05. 2009 17:46
Does anyone know where I might purchase a traditional brown storekeepers coat? I think it would be very comforting to retire to my workshop and pull on a brown coat,preferably with proper rubber buttons instead of press studs.
  I can get blue ones but I definately feel I should have brown .I'm sure it would have a calming effect.
 Ive looked on ebay but no luck so far.

Might be a good idea to get in touch with Andy Tierman classic motorcycle seller in suffolk UK... If he can wear them awful looking red boiler suits then I'm sure his supplier must sell brown overalls too! Widen your search to include brown bib & braces you might get lucky. Bet someone out there sells them somewhere. Good Luck!  *smile*

You could always buy a white lab coat and a tin of dye  ;)
