Thinking back to my first pair of trousers, I always remember this chap!

They were bought in February 1970 for my uncle's wedding. Gone are the days when a chap like Donald Mercer came out the back of the shop wearing a suit, or a sports jacket and flannels with his tape measure round his neck to measure your waist and inseam. Sadly his old shop is now a betting shop.:headshake: I didn't know till the above nearly 13 year old report was published that he had such a prestigious history. 🤔

I'd also like to add that while out shopping I saw some plank in the supermarket wearing a sleeveless t-shirt, hideous cargo shorts and flip flops!! :ohmy: Not a young one either. He must've been as old as me. What the feck I ask?!!🧐

You make feel very scruffy, today I’ve been mostly wearing a knackered old pair of Levi’s, Honda motorcycle hoodie and a pair of Adidas Hamburgs
I rarely wear those tweed pants. They're great in this weather, but too warm for non very cold/freezing days. They're also lined which makes them even warmer:heat:, but the lining does stop that wool itchiness. That cardigan is about 55 years old. I bought it from the shop I work in. That's also very warm and best left for very cold days, unless worn without a jacket on milder days.

Why bother about how someone else chooses to dress? Unless it's stupidly revealing or offensive (and I say that as the owner of Cradle of Filth's "Vestal Masturbation" shirt, which doesn't get a public airing) does it matter?
