Wear the Forest of Dean

The Forest of Dean Dress from Whitestuff

The Forest of Dean Dress from Whitestuff

The new catalogue from White Stuff arrived last week and looking through it we spotted this dress call The Forest of Dean.  Very nice too – my wife likes it!  However, we are struggling to establish the connection with the beautiful Forest of Dean where we live.

Maroon (or cranberry crush as White Stuff call it) is not a Forest colour; bluebells in the spring, lush green in summer and orange-brown in autumn.  The main symbol is a watch face.  The only significant clock face we can recall is the church clock at Littledean – read this to find out why it’s unusual.

The only possible link we found is the “belt nipping in the waist” which on closer inspection has a maroon motif shaped like an oak leaf – The Forest of Dean is the largest oak forest in England.

If you can see the connection, please share it with us.
