Fennel - Quiet Man Out in the Quiet Fields
Born to Love the Countryside
One of our loyal readers put me onto the redoubtable Fennel. Nigel 'Fennel' Hudson is a writer and illustrator. Through his Fennel's Journal publications and Fennel's Priory website he passes on his knowledge of traditional country ways.
It is our philosophy at The Tweed Pig that there is no activity that is not improved by slowing it down. Fennel's chosen trajectory is firmly in the slow lane.
Tips for Traditional Country Clothing
According to our reader, Fennel is "fond of a good hat and pocket watch" and likes to dress in traditional sporting attire when out fishing.
Here are Fennel's top five recommendations:
Norfolk jackets and tweed suits: David Saxby
Everyday wear, including light gardening: Old Town Clothing (They should be on everybody's list.)
Country wear and waterproofs: Barbour (Clearly, our national dress.)
Footwear: William Lennon (Go for the Hill Boots.)
