“First appearances really count. If you go in a suit they’ll expect that you sit in an office and everyone else will do the work, whereas if you turn up in your work clothes everyone can see that youre actually going to do the work yourself” – Eddie

When Im wearing my normal clothes, Im just another person, when Im on the farm, in my work clothes, people know who I am and what Im there to do.” – Elliot
