Today we have a Friday Couple. Pedigree Paul wearing “Motorway Man” and Sindy in “Country Walk”. This Paul has been featured in Fashion Doll Friday before but the original post from 2015 didn’t show his car coat which I acquired later or his Chelsea boots. In any case, the photo had become unavailable due to the changes in my Flickr stream. I had another photo of him wearing it but frankly, I didn’t think it was a very good one so it was time for a do-over. I have shown Sindy in this outfit before too. She is my childhood Sindy and therefore my favourite so I decided to include her to show how well these outfits go together.
As the weather was dull and wet these were taken in my kitchen. Sindy and Paul look particularly British here. This was in the days when boyfriend and girlfriend had an outfit that matched or coordinated with each other. I think that was a lot more fun for kids to play with. Ringo the dog also makes an appearance today.
There were a couple of different versions of “Motorway Man”, the original outfits were made in the UK or Ireland but later ones were made in Hong Kong and the trousers and jacket are a lighter colour. I think this is the Made in Hong Kong version.
