    Is it possible to be serious about photography without a suit like this?

    Pockets big enough for 4x5 film holders. Several of them.

    Not sure why freestyle or some of the other shops don't offer Wegee or Ansel outfits, as much as some people seem to want to be them...

    Keith, you have found a gap in the market. Can I order my Talbot top hat now?

    Well if you bundle it with the daguerreotype kit, you'll be mad as a hatter in no time at all....

    Rodchenko designed the suit as the 'Artists Uniform'. Rodchenko was a large part of my dissertation, I really like a lot of his work.

    My first thought exactly. I have a couple of Ex Officio safari shirts that will hold a 2 4x5" Grafmatics or maybe 4 filmholders, but in practice this doesn't work so well. They seem to steam up in the pockets.
