London & North Western Railway engineers
I'm really into photographs of old workers at the moment, in a variety of noble industries like fishermen, railway engineers, miners, farmers, oil riggers, soldiers and even prison workers. It's hard not to be influenced by such images if you're even remotely into menswear. This and the fact that I was down a mine last week! Seriously though, you can really see where the workwear influences come from, which are always seen in some form on the catwalk to the high street and everything in between.
