    Thanks @Lyn (and Basil). That shall be my riposte in future in response to the singing of "Bye bye baby".....

    Nothing wrong with BCR trousies, just the shoes are a little impractical

    I still like that song
    :wink::blush:

    I also go out to open blowaway, sometimes end up in the garden with a long purple dressing gown with big pockets it also has a big hood for warmth in winter.
    Pockets often have string and secateurs in when I finally go in to get properly dressed, hang it back up, a big clonk as it hits the door.

    I have a big ancient hooded brown felt djellaba, which is great as it cuts out the wind and covers me entirely down to ankles....who knows what’s underneath!   I have been known to be found still wearing it (and my pjs of course!) mid afternoon in the garden.   Heaven knows what the neighbours think as they sit in front of their mirrors and do their make-up with this strange person next door.

    Ah! So not like the kilt, where nothing is worn underneath...

    That would be telling wouldn’t it?

    I have to say that with the addition of the kilt my gardening wear is now more stylish than at any other occasion when charity shop finds and casts off from my niece are the norm.

    Active work requires sturdy and practical clothing. Whether you work in a garden or a vegetable garden, there is always dust, dirt, and even chemicals, so the gardener's body must be well protected.

    Mine's always well protected. 
    What difference does it make if it's a vegetable garden or any other kind?
    I could argue that active work requires less clothing.

    Anything else you want to add to this 3 year  old thread?  :D

    I’m hard. I can put up with gardening dust. 😉

    I can only dream of dust @BenCotto... ;)
