Finally got my Sir William Johnson "type" impression put together. This was done primarily for the school to replicate Sir William Johnson landed gentry impression circa 1750's. Was able to buy some German brain-tanned breeches from friend Lloyd. This is my "hunting/sporting" impression. "Sir William" is depicted in one contemporary painting wearing a red British officer's uniform and in another in a green ranger's uniform. I wanted to do something different than the typical "long hunter" or "frontier trash" impression...so I sold some stuff, saved up my money and put together this from period paintings and descriptions of upper middle class "gentlemen".....I can still do frontier trash as needed! t up
