Suit – Created in Painter by Inky

Shirt and Tie, Jacket and Trousers

Usually set out like everyone else at school or in the office

It identifies you as a member of the company, but when

That moment comes, you can’t wait for your T-shirt and Jeans

To many, a master of his craft

a marvel with the scissors, needle and thread

in a few hours, a suit of stature can be

lovingly crafted to the clients design

or measurements can be taken so shirt, jacket, tie and trousers can be

rounded up off various pegs for the clients special day

The Old School tie….

Uniform

schooltie

Our Lady of Mount Carmel RC High School, 1987

Stood inside the “New” Amalgamated school by Buile Hill Park, in Salford.

Two sets of kids awaiting to go off to lessons – but first – the set up of forms

The classes had to be put together – Cathedral with St Lawrence’s.

you couldn’t tell them apart – similarity with the standard kit – Black/Charcoal Grey Trousers, White shirt/blouse (light Blue was allowed), Navy Blue jumper….

and of course…the school tie.

The boys would always do something with their jumper – round the shoulders or tied round the waist

The girls on occasion would do the tomboy thing – wearing the school tie whilst messing with the regulation skirt

In the crowded school hall , friends wave to one another that they recognise – How?

The School Tie was ever so slightly different in the way the light blue stripes landed on the dark blue….and till the new stock came in – that’s the way it would stay.

They wore them like badges of honour.
