Morning,

I have absolutely no idea - sorry.

Steve, see you at Tewkesbury unless I get down the hall before hand.

Steve, see you at Gilbert White's house because you won't be down the hall.

I've been hankering after a new pair or breeches, I think I'll drop Smiling Fox a line then on your recommendation then

I concur- except for women's shifts- neckhugging with self ruffle and sleeves that cover the wrist- for comparision see the Silly Sisters site- excellent (and therefore expensive) women's clothing, but very good photographs of good women's kit (mostly dated to particular periods as well)

Their other women's kit is passable- with minor pedantries! and they are certainly one of the better American sutlers.

Don't know about their delivery times, sorry Tod.
Unfortunatly Silly Sisters don't sell habit shirts:-) or man's shirts either.

Best,

Judith

Gilbert has a better standard of biscuit to Mr Belton.

And it's only 10 miles down the road. :D
