Waxed cotton ,the height of fashion?

As this is "The HU Bar Chat forum - no useful content required!"



Check out this guys' jacket ,then read some of the comments from the fashion "lovelys".
Absolutely priceless !

The Sartorialist: On the Street.....After Ralph Lauren, NYC



Who'd a thought a scabby old Belstaff , Panther and Triumph badges and an old scarf could be fashionable .
What's next ,flat cap ,donkey jacket with a copy of the Sporting Life in't pocket ,rolled down wellies and a whippet on a lead ?

You guys with multi coloured sci fi textiles are years behind the fashion ,us old buggers with greasy Belstaffs are haute couture .

Mine's a pint of mild .

I always knew that if I dressed the same for long enough that I would come back into fashion.

Is a fashion forum needed?
I'm going to have a serious look for my donkey jacket, but I suspect it's been dumped on the sly.....

That's the one! Though I tend to graze knuckles not grass and mine was customised with the removal of some buttons and the addition of a contrasting belt of insulating tape, which is thought to have great healing properties for bad backs, I've a feeling in my water this could be the next big thing, keep 'em peeled.
