I often wonder how many tattered and scuffed up jackets did Compo have in his props wardrobe.
I noticed Clegg had a hole along the stitching on the shoulder of his jacket in one episode where they filmed over his shoulder. I think it was the left shoulder but I never made a note of which episode as that was the only time I can recall him having a hole in his clothes.Maybe he received some hand me downs from Cleggy. In the early seasons you may have noticed Cleggy had some holes in his jacket. By the later shows he never did.
