some would say its almost as gay as a bunch of dudes checking out each other on the internet. stick around, ill get a whole lot gayer.
thanks for the kind words!
insulation works both ways, so if temps go over 98.6 theoretically wearing a cape should cool you down, no?
I'll confess, I was wearing my lightweight barbour most of yesterday...
The last few hours sounded very exciting (I was watching it on TV earlier in the day but went out in the early evening, so missed the conclusion); hope you had fun!
We are surely now deep into the tercio de muerte...
Far too hot for capes, although I was enveloped by warm folds of sunshine while dozing on The Lawns at Trinity earlier this afternoon. I hope that is close enough.
EDIT: For those bored enough of cape discussion to want a different little sartorial anecdote, I was doing some work in a local general hospital in the morning and one of the patients (not the one I was there to see, I hasten to add) came up to me and told me how her (I think, late) husband used to have a similar seersucker jacket that he'd had made up in the Far East and that she'd never seen another one since. We briefly chatted about clothes and she reminisced about the fact he enjoyed dressing nicely. Anyway, I think for a little while her mind was taken off her reasons for being in hospital and she was bright and cheerful. It's remarkable how a little fun with clothes can bring a smile to others as well as yourself. Of course, if they're smiling with you as she was, that's ideal. But even if they're smiling at you, as long as you pick and choose who you risk that reaction from, even that's not really a bad thing if you think about it.
stitchy's post below illustrates this to perhaps the nth degree.
