50 Year Old Long Johns

Yes. It's true, they are about 50 years old.

My family and its members are dedicated to our quality pieces of clothing.  Clearly.

My Dad popped in the other day and asked if I would be so kind as to repair his long john pants.  He volunteered that his Dad bought them for him when he was 15, for hunting.

I said, "Absolutely, of course; I can repair them."

He smiled and said, "There's no hurry...hunting season is over."

Ah, Dad.

(Sometimes Goodness can't be bought "new".  It must be repaired.)

And here they are...with a new inseam panel, nylon patching and an overhaul on the quilting...ready to go to work again. 

 Not too shabby for 50 years old...

Here's to many more hunting seasons in a great pair of long johns, Dad.

  1. You have a way with the telling of it all. Kind of neat story actually. Cool that it is shared. So much for those $300 hunting outfits. There is more to it than that! Said long johns may well been purchased at Roots? Memories...they warm the cockles of one's heart!kls
