The Intrepid is a very handsome garment and we have received six of them to cover our action needs.
Densely knitted these are heavy pieces of workwear, it's clear why seafaring men would choose them.
It was this water repellent property which made dipping, ageing, and tearing quite a feat. Breaking them down was a physical task as well as a creative one, my hands are rough and grey today.
Having taken a good beating, bloody and battered and darned, they tell our story.
