Sported by shooting gents on the scottish hills. Trousers (usually Tweed) that reach just below the knee. Worn with wool stockings, the idea being that if you were shooting across wet ground you could change the stockings rather then endure wet trousers all day. Usually sported by Lords and above !!!

We are hoping for more female input on 'Regards from' as long as it doesn't wander off topic.

ever-practical, those lords. reckon that's how they got to be lords? not bloody likely. (i wish i could say "not bloody likely" with a proper british accent. )

when regards from digresses to needlework, etc, i'll be right there.

Chris
Was I happy to read your description of plus fours.I'm going to have some fun with that.Some group in our gated community convinced the board that our dress code needed to be tightened up because(apparently) there is a perception that people are not dressing anymore in the proscribed tradional manner for our various recreational activities.I was asked to compile the input from the various groups and plus fours was one of the acceptable items of apparel for golf. I looked it up but all I could find was a reference to a pantaloon.Thanks.

Chris,
I can picture you perfectly. Do you know that I even read your posts with a British accent? It just seems to fit when I read what you say. Unfortunately it's more of a refined London accent (not Eastend) than from Central UK. Go with what you know I guess. I see you working in your dungeon with your spiders having a cuppa looking ever so regal in your dinner suit or plus fours. How quaint. How's that?

Well I'm fascinated by the two last posts.......

'proscribed tradional manner for our various recreational activities'


If you have to step out for a quick round of croquet do you have to consult a dress code ? What happens if for instance if you commit a 'gaff' with regard to the correct outfit, are you subject to a stiff note from the commitee ?

Plusses....

As regards the accents there's parts of the islands UK and Eire where I'm struggling to understand people and they me.
Its a little early for the spiders but they'll be out in an hour give or take ten minutes. I was down at the library trying to identify them as they are much bigger then the normal domestic spiders we have over here. Unfortunately I couldn't get a leash over ones head so I had to work from memory !

paulette,

i need to find out where your community is so my mom can move there immediately and join that committee. it is one of the great sorrows of her life that people no longer "dress". she has teetered around on high heels for many a decade, and will be encouraged to hear that there are kindred spirits still out there somewhere. so. fla, hmm?
