Trying not to be a dick in public
Mel has suggested that I start a fashion blog for the older model. Here is H.I. in such a fashion shoot, and I think you will agree that she would make a much better model than I would, mainly because all of her clothes are bought straight from either the (black) label outlet itself, or from the optimistic buyer who liked to think she was about 4 sizes smaller than she actually was, and only squeezed herself into it once before putting it on Ebay and losing 95% of the purchase price.
Today is H.I.'s birthday - hurrah! - and she is another year into her short-lived career as an older model. I have been instructed to cook a roast dinner today for all the family - 75% of the females being fashion-victims too, but they would never admit to it.
I am very choosy about what I wear, but you would not know it by looking at me. It is what I like to think of as 'understatement', because having my hair and 6' 3" frame, I would not make a good spy.
That old bloke that Jack@ featured standing at a train station recently would have made a good private dick, were it not for his dress sense. He has obviously decided on a late career as a public dick.
As I have often said (John), I favour the classic period Armani, because it costs a lot of money to look like a relaxed tramp these days, but - try as I might - I will never blend into the background.
