Vintage Photos

My maternal grandfather was an incredible gentlemen and always looked very dapper, no matter what he wore. Being a South African mango and cattle farmer that usually meant a light plaid shirt, khaki shorts, knee high socks, leather shoes and always, always a hat. His hair was always perfectly pomaded underneath the hat and I cannot recall ever seeing his hair in a mess. Despite the fact that he was out in the fields all day long he always looked neat.

I selected this picture of him in a military factory during WW2, somewhere in Northeast Africa, mainly because of his hair. Neat and stylish without a curl out of place. And even though he is wearing a plain military shirt and pants, he still looks perfectly styled.
