post #40621 of 57252
I've only had a quick squiz at the judgement but I didn't see the high court being particularly prudish. Maybe I missed it. I do agree that the media has largely trivialised it. But once you have been involved in a news event, or have a detailed knowledge of an area, you will always arrive at a point where you cannot believe what the media gets away with, and how wilfully shallow and often wrong their approach and content is. As a trivial example take men's clothes.

Anyway I thought it was, relatively, important. It seems to me, on a skim reading, it turns somewhat on whether the activity is work directed or organised or required. As such it might be able to be challenged on the grounds that it is required to inhabit the motel room and perhaps even go to bed. What you do in the room has to be allowed a wide range of activities. Say adjusting light to better shine shoes, slipping on Saphir cream, accidently grabbing light to same effect.

Funny. An hour ago I bought this from one of our esteemed members. What to pair it with though? I was thinking maybe rusty red or even pink chinos. But more likely a light grey flannel or sand/khaki chinos. Thoughts anyone? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Its loud no subtlety involved here so what would you wear it with linen shirt? could even go a quality white Tshirt? Red chinos with that would raise the volume. Sand or khaki would tone it down a few decibels. Depends upon the desired effect you want.

While an innkeeper has a duty in common law to ensure the safety of his/her guests, that warranty that the premises are safe for their guests to use still turns on the facts: what is a reasonable use of the fittings? Holding on to it while engaged in intercourse might not qualify.

 

Possibly the same reason why you won't be successful against a table-lamp manufacturer if you died in the process of autoerotic asphyxiation while using the table-lamp cable.

Get some streetwear into you.

 

Good look.

 

And all women have friends. They'll pass the note.

Hadn't even thought about the shirt. Def. a white t-shirt would work. I also have white or black linen shirts to choose from. Black could fun.

I am itching to try out my Michael Bastian pink trousers - http://cache.mrporter.com/product/333347 - now that I have them hemmed....need the weather in Melbourne to improve and an appropriate occasion....maybe my wife's birthday dinner on Friday.

Would love to hear what you end up working with this.

I think you need to 'anchor' this jacket with a dark colour somewhere.

 

White top, dark blue bottom

 

White top, dark brown bottom

 

Dark blue top, white bottom

 

White top, rust coloured bottom

 

If you go with a Sand coloured bottom, I'd stick to a white or dark blue top.

 

*Top = Polo (unpopped collar) or shirt. I'd keep it plain to let the jacket stand out.

 

*Bottom = trousers, chinos, denim
