Macs.

Ever since Gregory Peck and Eddie Albert set the benchmark for sartorial elegance for journo’s and snappers, in Roman Holiday, there’s been a lot to live up to. Gone are the suits and stylish rain macs of yesteryear, nowadays it’s all denims, Merrells and black gore-tex’s, de rigeur for the press snapper about town. Gone is the elegance and style.

So imagine my pleasure when looking through a big box full of Subbuteo teams, to see which teams I had, only to find these two elegantly dressed snappers. Now I never did football shifts, only the once or twice against my wishes, but I still feel an affinity for these little press guys with their 5×4’s, their bulb flashes, and their sore knees….stylish in their shirts and ties, and rain macs.

  1. I’ll take your rain-mac-wearing Subbuteo snappers with their Speed Graphics, and raise you a “War Journo Action Figure”…
