Safari suit sightings

The Safari Brothers from New Zealand

I’d like to thank Chester Tiddys for sending these photos in. He wrote:

“Hi there, here’s a few photos of us in our safari suits you might like.
We are a club here in Oamaru, New Zealand with a similar interest as yours.
We are called the Safari Brothers, mainly a retro cycle club that dresses retro and rides retro bikes, and drink a heap of flagons.

Your annual outings look like alot of fun with good numbers too.

Will try and get you some more photos later.”

Please send us some more photos Chester. These are GOLD. Thanks.

Essential items for your Safari wardrobe

I’m not sure of the origin of these (I’m guessing an old Eleganza catalogue) but they’re too good not to put here, thanks Deb.

Things happen when you wear Eleganza!

Lovin’ the lapels!

Stretch terry jumpsuit – maybe it’s not so comfortable as he doesn’t look happy about it.

The ultimate fashion climax!

Make sure you tuck your singlet in boys.

Austin at the Charles Sturt Tavern

Austin at the Charles Sturt Tavern with Gus and Winks

I added a post a while back about Austin at the Charles Sturt Tavern. That post didn’t have a picture of Austin but now Winks has dug one up out of his photo album.

Here’s the story:

This didn’t just happen once but two years in a row, Safari ended at The Charles Sturt Tavern where we met Austin in his lovely powder blue Safari Suit absolutely cutting up the dance floor. He was well and truly past retirement age but still did the odd job and I know this because he gave me his card.

I feel he was a very popular and frequent patron to this particular establishment because everyone knew him, especially the ladies. Gus and I had found the perfect person to present the final awards and he did it with style.

Do you remember Austin?

Do you have any pictures of past safari pub crawls sitting around in photo albums? If so please scan them and send them to me.
