Do Not Rise and Shine

In England, no one would show up at a shooting party in brand new shooting clothes, at least not until they have climbed a couple of steep hills and tumbled all the way down. They would rather be accidently shot than taken for nouveau riche beginners.

This principal can, perhaps with some slight modification, be applied to country style in general. Dry cleaning is expensive and aggressive to natural fibres. Airing and brushing will in most cases be enough – your tweeds do not have to shine, you know.

The only things that must be polished in your country ensemble are your shoes. Truly the mark of a gentleman’s character, as there is no excuse for not giving them a quick brushing before putting them on, and some waxy love an occasional evening!
