AS life long petrol heads and co-owners of Skull & Pistons Garage Stephen and I were really looking forward to returning to Goodwood Revival this year. The weekend sees thousands of people visit Goodwood for cars, music, food, dancing, shopping and more cars. As well as customizing and restoring British classic cars, in general we spend every waking hour immersed in car related things. Reading Retro Cars, watching every car programme known to man and talking about cars most of the time, so Goodwood Revival is an ideal day out for us…
This year Stephen wore vintage trousers from Blitz, a knitted tank top from Tweedmans Vintage, a collarless shirt from Hackett, boots from Trickers and cap from John Lewis. I wore racing overalls made from a plain white boiler suit and patches, I also added our Skull & Pistons logo to the back. I wore this with vintage tan leather boots, a vintage tan leather handbag, tan belt from Timberland, vintage bandana, Ray Ban aviators and I borrowed Stephen’s goggles. My outfit was a little bit clean really, so I’m going to wear it at the Skull & Pistons Garage, by the time the next Revival comes around it’ll be filthy and therefore more authentic!
There are hundreds of stands at Goodwood Revival, selling incredible wares from cars and car parts to clothes, shoes, petrol pumps, food, jukeboxes, furniture and accessories. Fabian, the genius behind Rufus Country was one of the exhibitors at Goodwood along with Captain Fawcett. Together they displayed some beautiful examples of their work including a collaboration between the two. Fabian revealed some new styles at Revival for both men and women, perfect treats ideally suited to this event (I’ll be featuring more Rufus Country on Helen’s Wardrobe again very soon).
