I love the style of those old climbers. The pictures from the book make them look like they're just out for a stroll in the country in their khakis and wool hats.
I'm looking at you, every quick tire/lube place ever.
You get laughed at if you're wearing something nicer than jeans and a t shirt. Actually, now that I think of it, if you are wearing a nice t shirt and nice jeans you get laughed at. If it doesn't have bleach stains/holes, burn marks, and unidentifiable food/chemical/biohazardous material stains on it, it is too nice for lab.
In fact, when people come to the lab to interview for postdoctoral research positions they often show up in a suit. And they get made fun of for it. To their face.
My wife's grandparents are quite active with the group and I got to spend some time checking it out a couple of years ago.
They have a guy there who is basically rebuilding the thing from the ground up.
They also have some old lumber mills and other similar logging tech.
Pretty cool old stuff. I would highly recommend a visit if you're ever in the area.
