But you have to give them credit for lining up the the stripes of the jacket and trousers!  :o


Attention to detail, Mike  8)  ;D

Actually they’ve reversed the cloth on the jacket’s right side so if you look closely you’ll see the stripes DON’T line up!
Pity that otherwise I’d have been right after it.







(Nah!)

Of course, Rod, it's just your style to a T!  ;)

Yep, I hope they don't hold their breath while waiting for me too! Seriously, who can wear that? Even Hendrix would throw up just seeing it. It looks like a costume of a cartoon character impersonating Austin Powers!

Well , you know , it might have been ideal stage attire back in the day but for the rest of us l'm sure you would only wear it for a bet . . .or maybe , not even that . .




But nowadys if you wore that down the supermarket ( where else can you wear it out ) , most people wouldn't even bat an eyelid as we have all seen Joe Soap wearing worse than that. .

. .if you could find one , well at least , one that would let you in like that . .



The last fancy dress party l went to , the hosts were in two minds whether to let me in and l was dressed up as Biden ! And l don't mean Hunter or Jill. .!  Something about inappropriate.  .
I got in eventually but there is still turmoil about it and l never got to make my State of the Union address. .

That would have to be a "very" fancy dress party.

Not for everybody (or anybody :D)
I'm not sure I could pull it off, but these striped jeans from Anglozine caught my eye:

They would look rather smashing as you scamper through the Florida swamp lands, being pursued  by a stern looking chap wearing mirror shades, with a couple of hound dogs by his side.

TBH, Mike, I prefer my jeans standard stuff, call me conservative  ;). That striped motif looks better in proper trousers, seersucker for instance, imo.

Never thought I'd like something by Armani, but this knitted polo is interesting. More to my tastes, and admittedly more "mod-looking", a long sleeved polo by Lemaire with great collar. The Armani number is outrageously expensive (360+ €), but the other one could be something to keep an eye on for the sales (180 €).
