    Fred Gwynn was a good actor, and I enjoyed his characters. I was just making a joke on the comparison with Herman Munster. I didn't know Gwynn was an artist and painter. In that respect, their is no comparison between Gwynn and me (although I did paint my Grandmother's house back in 1974 if that counts). :D

    The ol' Rooster working his tail feathers off teaching a gun building class in Indianapolis all last week. Not vintage, but the guns are!

    It's a British bush jacket from What Price Glory. The captain's rank are original and slip over the epalettes . The hat is an Akubra "Digger" or military campaign hat.

    You look great--I especially like how the pattern of your socks echo the pattern of your tie, and that hat is perfection.

    Off topic, but did the movie get a good turn out? I've never seen that one on the big screen, I bet it was fun.

    Yes, good turn out, the theater was almost filled. This was an original 35mm film, which is supposed to be some sort of big deal. Unfortunately, The quality on some reels was pretty poor. The woman that played Scout was there in person and answered questions after the show.
    I was the only guy there that smelled of old wool and Brylcreem.....

    At the risk of being pedantic, that is not the block traditionally associated with the digger's, or 'slouch' hat, as I recognise the iconic shape,
    http://www.diggerhistory.info/pages-uniforms/slouch_hat.htm
    but as is revealed here,
    http://www.diggerhistory.info/pages-uniforms/slouch1939.htm
    they obviously came from the factory originally looking like the one you have on, and were altered by the troops until their own block became the norm, we used to apply that look to our school hats by using two pencils to get the rake exactly right as you see below, this actually fitted me 40 years ago.
