Where were you thinking of going for a DB suit?
Bray is only a little bit Wicklow - all the sheep are indoors.
Yes, I was slightly tempted by Louis Copeland but I just wasn't all that convinced. Maybe I simply feel he's been doing cushy boring business suits for politicians too long to be able to do anything interesting. I don't know.
Ok ok, so it's not exactly in the country but I'm still not from Dublin... promise.
I'd agree to the point made about checkered shirts as well. They're also usually poor quality and style. They also tend to be worn in ways that are simply displeasing to the eye/sensibilities.
