I like cos-playing a 1950's greaser or a cowboy as much as the next guy or gal, but lots of us actually use IH gear for working in.  And so we should! It performs brilliantly, accelerates wear and tear, and means we have a valid excuse to buy more

So, please post pics of you in your gear, sweating in your workshop, on site, or in the garden, here. Also pics of gear trashed by working in it are most welcome. The focus is on IH gear but savagely manhandled boots and stuff from other brands is fine too.

To start things off, this summer I'm building a supporting wall and a large deck outside of the "mansion". My 666XHS and IHSH-68-IND are my working clothes of choice.

First day, ripping out hedges:



Shirt and jeans after first three days of work:



After a week:


Yesterday before a much needed wash:


The wall taking shape:

Great thread idea @neph93 and I'm sure @spitfiredealer who's landscaping in IH gear will have some action shots . . .

Cheers!

I was going to tag some potential contributors and @spitfiredealer was certainly one. @D97x7 was another but he beat me to it with some terrific examples of what this is all about. Otherwise @jdl1279 , @mikebarhoot @Matty123 from the other side of the pond. @trail and arrow has some magnificent well used workwear too. Now that @Alex has chucked in I fully expect @Giles to up the ante  ;)

I'm guessing there are many others too. So bring it on...

@Alex and I will be putting up a new mezzanine in the office above the photo studio this weekend.  I suspect there'll be a couple of photo ops.....

How about @Warner

Not done it before but damn there's a lot of material in and out. I had to take out 3 metric tons of natural stone and earth by hand, and so far I've put in 2.5 metric tons of drainage gravel under and behind the wall and 1.5 metric tons of road grit in front to lock it off against the asphalt. Be good when it finished though
