I’ve always thought being a gamekeeper would be a decent profession. Yes it’s physically demanding and you’re not likely to retire early on a keepers salary, but in my opinion there’s some glaringly obvious benefits to swapping the office for the moors.
First off is the fact you get to spend long periods of time on your own; Fantastic … as I seem to be developing an unjustifiable intolerance for people, particularly in the work environment (Yes I’m an old misery). Secondly, you get to burn stuff, well heather anyway and us humans don’t half love burning stuff, be it scented candles, portable barbecues, knackered cars!? Thirdly, I’ve always fancied owning an old Land Rover Defender and gamekeepers are usually provided with one for nowt … Gerrin! Finally and probably most appealing is that the majority of your working day is spent braving the elements, which clearly warrants the acquisition of this Roald Fairisle Fleece as part your work ensemble.
Made by those clever folk over at Norse Projects, the Roald Fairisle Fleece is something your granddad might have worn back in the day (in an old folky yet cool kind of way), with its brushed wool ‘rifle green’ fleece and custom fairIsle pattern. This autumn/winter essential is constructed from the finest Italian fabric and features two side pockets, the Norse label tab and a dense nylon lining, ensuring you will remain toasty when chasing down them pheasants.
Find this and more wintery goings from Norse over at the Goodhood Store.
