    First off I would like to thank everyone who had a Twodogs wool bush shirt last year , its been a lot of fun :)

    [​IMG]

    The shirts have gone all over the world ...not just with me ,,Canada , Russia , Sweden to name a few ,

    [​IMG]

    Last years sales thread is below ,

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=122982

    As most will know I regard the Twodogs wool bushshirt as a work item sorry folks if you want pit zips , leather and tassles you will need to add your own :)..


    What a lot of people dont know is I sew a set of pockets and a lanyard line behind the "kanga pouch" for phone , knife , strobes ,survival blanket whatever you want really .

    [​IMG]


    Normally I sew a shock cord around the base ,

    [​IMG]

    This season i will give three options ,

    1, staight cut with cord as last season ,

    [​IMG]

    2, Drop rear with cord ,

    [​IMG]

    3, Drop rear with slits up the side for better movement and NO shock cord .

    [​IMG]

    Add ons


    Open pocket on Kanga pouch for binos at extra cost .

    Blankets ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,:)

    As some will know getting surplus blankets can be hard work the supplies are drying up and cost are going up ,
    Last year there were loads of Yugoslavian blankets about these now seem to of gone :(

    This is how it is for me as i get them I will list them....:)

    I now have a limited amount of good earth colour blankets to make Twodogs wool bushshirt ...

    [​IMG]

    These are aired to be sure there is no moth protection chemicals due to storage

    [​IMG]

    All blankets are then washed in woollite to get them ready for sewing to your size ..:D ( this is happening this week )



    All the sizing info below

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/entry.php?b=45

    Bushshirt are normally made within two weeks and a photo and tracking number is sent at that time



    So coming soon ,,,,,,more Twodogs multi-tone bushshirts ,


    Thanks for looking

    Twodogs,

    I've only just managed to get the one you made for my brother-in-law to him and he thinks it's great.

    I'm sorely tempted myself but I already have two Swanni bushshirts and I think the wife will kill me if I get another similar jacket.

    The weight of the American blankets is very similar to the Swannis, as you say, and the colour is great so I would recommend it to anyone.

    The front pocket is also great, especially with the additional internal pockets.

    Thanks for getting this one together is such short time and for making an excellent garment.

    Jack.

    Saw one of these in the flesh at the Moot and I am very tempted.

    Can you still get the olive green though?

    the bushmoot simply overloads you with great experiences and memories and one in particular made tears well up in my eyes on and off for a whole day...

    there was a twodogs shirt for sale during traders day....i put it on over my head to try it for size and at that moment angela called me back into the reception area to serve a customer....whilst i was gone, marmite and countryman bought me the shirt behind my back as a present.

    a classic case of thoughtfulness and generosity typical of moot behaviour, displayed by two of the lovliest guys in the world whom i'm lucky enough to have as friends.

    they both know that i've virtually lived in my swanni since owning it but its now taken a back seat....replaced by an amazingly well made and useful twodogs shirt of the thickest material possible....i absolutely love it....its mind blowingly good and made even better by what it means to me....

    thankyou frank, andy, twodogs and docg!!!

    nuff luv! x

    Just to say.
    Anyone debating buyin one
    Stop debating and buy it.
    Mine has served me faithfully from day one.
    All last summer i slept in using only the twodogs and a ccf mat.
    October it was my only choice for warm layer when i did the hunter gatherer challenge.
    Winter it was a constant cosy companion

    It is one of the first items i pack on any trip away.

    You can guess im a big fan

    uk mainly in the Midlands though
    Remember winter is coming!

    you don't want to wait till it's cold get them now!

    I have a friend who decided for go for a famous American manufacture of bush shirt cause he had seen several of our American cousins going on about them on Youtube, on a battle camp in January in Dartmoor, we both instructing on SERE skills to the lads and both of us are into our survival and bushcraft both smocks came out and we did a comparison... Cliff's won hands down, not only on the thickness but also the pocket design and also the stitching and price. He was jealous over the weeks we were down there and I could have sold it many times over but I didn't.
