Every morning, mister Denis woke up half an hour before his wife to chose his clothes, iron his shirt and shine his shoes. When she woke up, they had breakfast together, and she oftenly made compliments about his fit. Feeling reassured, he left home to wait for the 8:17 bus. When he was seeing the bus arriving, he always had the same feeling: he was ready. Adventure, glory and good fortune were maybe waiting for him around the corner. He won’t meet them in a despicable outfit.

This castle ? Oh, no, I didn’t inherit any family wealth; my father was totally broken. You don’t chose your parents …. Your parents in law, however …

Sure ... Obviously Brexit is a global catastrophe, England will collapse and Europe will fall into chaos before a storm of locusts comme flying over our dying corpses. Meanwhile I already see a positive effect, which is the reason why I took the first flight to London: the sterling devaluation !!!

- You guys don't know Spritz? I discovered that in the 90's and I don't know why actually everybody drink that
- I ordered you a very special drink which is actually quite popular but I've been drinking it since a long long time: Spritz !
- Come on girls, I didn't wait for this Vogue article to drink Spritz ! This is the cocktail we've been drinking for years with Gilles, each time we went to Italy !
- This, old chap, is Spritz ! You can see that everywhere now, but I've been drinking it for almost 40 years!

Bit late to the party (great sketches! first time in weeks I'm laughing out loud at a cartoon, they're spot on) but I have to ask: I went to Paris last summer and my brother indeed had some kind of Campari-style bitter liquor (might well have been Campari) and San Pellegrino in the fridge which he immediately got out... I get it, it's a nice drink, but where did the craze come from?

@crdb  thx for laughing at my cartoons. I'm afraid I have no idea what was this drink, but I guess it may be an italian one, isn't it?

And then, this horrible trade unionist called me a “bourgeois pig” and left the negotiation room. Yet, my tweed suit can not be more rustic ! How dare he make such an amalgam ? Or maybe the white collar shirt had been a tip off for him?

It was a very popular. common drink local (in popularity) to Venice. Usually, Aperol, white wine and sparkling water. For some reason, it spread wildly in the last two years.
It is a great summer drink, low in alcohol and you can drink lots of it.
I prefer Campari, something, and sparkling water. With the something being grapefruit or orange juice or lemonade or orange soda . . etc. (but not wine). It is the same idea. A slightly bitter, slightly sweet, tart, sparkling drink that you can pour endlessly in the heat.

Aye, still drunk every day here in its various forms (Aperol, Campari, Cynar, etc.), each of which have their own connotations. I often draw flak from my friends for drinking the Aperol version as it's not considered a "Man's drink", although I'm sure that's just Venetian sense of humour.

It has spread wildly in the last couple of years because it seems fairly exotic, is largely unknown and nobody knows that the constituent ingredients are cheap.

Back in London you can get one for £10+ whereas at the bar 50m away from my flat it's €2; indeed anything over that is considered "expensive" by most people here and draws reproach.

The best version is a direct mix of prosecco and Aperol, only a few bars do that here, and it's how I make it at home.

My wife loves the Aperol version. I think of it as a bit like a Pimm's Cup in that the core of the drink is the apertif and the concept. But lots of things can be used as the other ingredients as long as you understand the target you are trying to hit and have decent sense on how ingredients work in a drink.

Maybe you really start being dapper when women stop considering you’re cute and begin saying you’re handsome

Each time I see a bayadere striped shirt in a shop, it’s the same story: I like it, I wonder why I don’t already own one, and then, obviously, I have to buy it. Then I put it on and I remember why I never buy bayadere striped shirt !

Firstly, he began going on specialized forum on the Internet, reading blogs… Then he changed the way he dressed and met only people like him. Actually, his friends say they don’t recognize him. He only eats pasta (all'arrabiata like in Napoli he says), and strikes a pose 5 times a day in the direction of Florence. Experts consider Maurice (who now wants to be called Maurizio) is a very rare case of sartorial online auto radicalization

A new scandal on a Mexican beach, where this swimmer, recently radicalized, was seen with a swimsuit directly inspired by the most extremist sartorial ayatollahs. Stay tuned for more informations about this #tuxini gate

 

As some of you may know, France is under a new terrorist menace: women bathing in burkini swimming suit.
