When is a Twat Jumper not a Twat Jumper?


When it is worn by a child in the 1950s, although some people might disagree. Ever since I became an adult, I have had an extreme aversion to two sartorial defects: long trousers which are too short (I always had my brother's cast-offs) and pointy collars which are not tucked into the top of a jumper.

Oh, and I have always hated parting my hair too. I have not combed or even brushed my hair for over 50 years.

  1. I can remember my first pair of longs; they were bought 'to grow in to'. Far too long, and too big a waist. Even so, I was very proud of them!

  2. I think you are a little smasher here - presuming it is you.

  3. I hate long trousers that are too short, and sleeves that are too short. "But that's fashion!" a salesperson twitters. "I am tall and it looks as if I grew out of it!" I say.
    And: I hate dresses or pullovers that are too wide. Why should I wear them?
    And I hate when they snip my fringe too short (even two millimeters cut off might be too short).

    1. Yes - I even hate the women's trousers which are deliberately cut above the ankle. It is a throwback, I think.

  4. Funny what we take with us through our life, I hate the colour maroon for clothes as it reminds me of school uniform.

    1. Maroon is a colour which should never be used in large areas for clothes, uniforms or otherwise.

  5. Tom, that is a charming picture.

    I've now gotten caught up on most of your blog posts that I'd missed. I left a a longer comment on the Brown Fields post.

    Hoping now to stay a bit more up to date with blogs I so enjoy reading, like yours.

  6. I don't have any hair but I brush it every morning.

  7. Your a handsome young boy. Having cury, easily frizzy, I try and only use a pic while my hair is wet only brushing once a day.

    1. Much has changed in the intervening years since that photo was taken, but I still have lots of hair.

  8. That's a very enigmatic smile.
