“As for the Hobbits of the Shire, with whom these tales are concerned, in the days of their peace and prosperity they were a merry folk. They dressed in bright colours, being notably fond of yellow and green; but they seldom wore shoes, since their feet had tough leathery soles and were clad in a thick curling hair.”
-J.R.R. Tolkien, Prologue, Fellowship of the Ring
This is a Hobbit who makes his home in the Shire. He has never left the Shire and has no plans to ever leave. He is not like those odd Baggins who are always off on some adventure.
I really love this shirt but it’s hard to pair it with anything but it’s matching pants. Often what ends up happening is you look like you are wearing two belts. I dyed the pants in this outfit brown to match the color of the belt on the shirt so that it looks like part of his pants is above his belt.
I chose the Treasure Hunter’s Rucksack because of it’s size. It is smaller than other backpacks in the game and it just looked right with this outfit. I imagine this gentleman out on a shopping trip, thus the need to be carrying his coin with him.
