Sounds like Viz magazine - "give it to your girlfriend" - fnar fnar
Peter Singer tonight on Q&A with great looking jacket over a pale blue open necked ocbd. Jacket looks to be unstructured mid grey melange woollen flannel. Looks smart and relaxed and informal. And suits his face and hair. Can't see what he has on underneath.
