The Latest Spring Fashion

 It's spring here in the western suburbs, better late than never.  And spring means you should be thinking about your summer wardrobe.  You want to look stylish, and this year that means a certain retro look.  It's time to backdate and make that uniform complete!

David went to considerable trouble to get these embroidered letters made for us, and here's what they look like when sewed onto a conductor's uniform.  Just like the old days!  My wife did the sewing, and it looks perfect.

Want some more fashion advice?  Don't even think about taking that stupid polo shirt you bought out of the closet.  Cut it up for use as tack cloths or cleaning rags.  Run, don't walk, to Henry's and get yourself a uniform that you can be proud of!  Prices will never be lower, because it's all free with your IRM membership card!

Now all you have to do is find a set of brass buttons to go with that elegant uniform jacket!

Nice work for all of you!

Ted, we already have nice CA&E brass buttons from Transquip. So this was about all that was still needed.

I need to get my uniformed buttoned out. I don't know if I'll use embroidered on the suit coat directly. I'm thinking of figure a way to do removable embroidered things since I run a variety of equipment. However, even in Summer, you won't see me in a polo. Always a white button down shirt. (Or Blue if I'm running CTA/CSL/CRT stuff).

Randy, is that a half Windsor or a full Windsor?

Beats me, it was just a quick and dirty knot so we could take pictures of your nice new lettering. And you didn't even notice that I was wearing khaki pants and tennis shoes, either.
