High pockets

The guy on the right probably has a wedgie from trying to pull his pants up to meet the bottom of his tie.

On the lookout for foxes?

So these are two wild and crazy guys. But at first I thought the the fellow on the left was the third place runner up in the Stan Laurel look alike contest.

Mr. Cravats

What's with those extraordinary knots in their ties? Were they part of the camp dress code? Amazing.

Camping?

Camping for the wealthy? They have two alarm clocks, a mirror, cloth for table, nice bed. My kind of camping. Is it me or the angle of the camera, but don't these guys look really small?
