Shorts have their place, don't get me wrong but I object to them being worn as "evening wear", also, when you get to be someone of *ahem* "my age", you my want to limit your public wearing of them, most people can do w/o the sight of that... ;)

Oh, I forgot it Mike! With shorts I follow the Gremlins' rule too: never after the sun sets.

Nay, nay and thrice nay!

I did a bit on the blog about shorts recently. This look of bare ankles and loafers or boat shoes looks rank. It's not good on Weller when he was a decent looking bloke in decent shape. It's appalling on fat middle aged Americans with Dunlap disease and saddle-bound legs.

After spending most of yesterday on the very hot,sweaty and smelly London Underground I have come to the conclusion that only a bespoke thong is suitable for such travelling.

I don't dislike the Weller look in this pic at all (minus the hair, for one reason or another, after the Jam the man has never chosen the hairdo that suits him better), tho' I'd change the tasseled loafers for deck shoes or white lo-tech sneakers. Classic Ivy League look. Anyway, horses for courses, etc.

Shorts won't do you any favours if you're in bad shape, but with a slim frame you can pull the look off. That said, I insist one wears shorts strictly for comfortability, not in pursuit of sharpness. It's not just the heat here, but a 70% humidity, so when weekend comes you run to the swimming pool and spend the day in shorts.

Oh, and be careful with flip flops, not only they're ugly, they damage the feet.

For me it just looks like Weller forgot to put his trews on when getting dressed and no one had the heart to tell him  ;)

And of course, for holiday, I will need a hat, as not much hair left  ;D ::)

Pork pie ?

Good option. And how about a seersucker or linen cap?

Huv tae confess oan the rare occasions it does get really hot here ma preferred option is still tae stay indoors wi' the curtains drawn.
