I have recently bought some gear off Andywinkk, who has a clothing factory. All natural materials, Ventile & moleskin etc. You will not find any of it in the shops, but yet it still has that "look" about it, that just screams out "bushcrafter".
Personally, for me to spend money on gear or clothing it has to fit certain criteria:
- Is it in earthy colours?
- Is it practical?
- Is it fit for purpose?
- Do I like it?
- Can I afford it?
If "yes" to all the above - it's mine!
I have had times in my life when I was not sure where the next meal was coming from, literally. Now, I have a good job, that I love, so I treat myself every now and then...
