that 28th annual peru fair look

28th Annual Peru Fair. Peru VT; September 26, 2009.
Location: Main Street, Peru, Vermont.

"The homespun Peru Fair steps off with a 9:45 a.m. parade, followed by a pig roast, live music, dancing, hay rides and other entertainment. Dozens of local artisans and food vendors. Parking available at nearly Bromley Mountain, with shuttle buses provided to and from the village." -via Vermont Agency of Agriculture.

You can see my coverage of the 2008 Fair here, no doubt will post about it again this year. If you are in the area (southern Vermont) it is a solid must in my book. Tons of crafts, hayride, magic show guy, cloggers... and a good pig roast. It gets pretty busy for the small town.


The rig above could be a good apple-picking getup too...

The VT scenes from Baby Boom were filmed in/around Peru so if you want a primer on the town give it a look. (Our cow made it into one scene, did she get a credit? Have to check that.)

Shirt: blue OCBD type with vest. It is often 10degrees colder in Peru than down in the valley of Manchester so layer up.

Watch: Hamilton Khaki Frogman, for all the autumn swimming you might do... Dorset Quarry??

Jeans: Mine. Carhartt Western (Not boot cut. Western.) Don't see them much in the US anymore, but a straight legged type. I was getting them at HN Williams store in Dorset, VT nearby.

Boots: Red Wings x Concepts. Missed these earlier in the year, but a nice collab done with waxed cotton panels. (Is there anything waxed cotton doesn't go with?? Socks or boxers maybe...)

Pocket knife: handy to cut through crackling etc. Keep your eyes peeled and you may spot the owner of that knife, local Perkins is CEO for Orvis.

When did things stop being "due for release" and start "dropping"? And does this mean I'm officially a crotchety old fart? Humbug!
Love the boots - hard to find even standard Red Wings in London...

I love that Hamilton. First 'military' watch I've seen that I really liked. But holy crud-- what a price tag!
