    A case can be made for lifting a sombre outfit. I may be too conservative. I would not want the brightness to dominate the outfit though. With knitwear in general, I usually opt for trusted colours -unless the knitwear is worn as the top layer. That said, where knitwear is available in a large...

    Don’t know the show, but I have given up worrying about clothes associated with TV characters. Classic case in point is Victor Meldrew who often wears an Aquascutum/Burberry raincoat and a flat cap. Victor’s shirts are not too bad either. I would not wear a beret but that has nothing to do with...

    Slipovers(sleeveless v necks) were extremely popular back in the day. They were very practical and easier to wear under a jacket. I have never understood the disdain from people who deride them as ‘tank tops. Knitted waistcoats are even more practical PLUS you get the warmth that a waistcoat...

    A Thirties look is probably the easiest way to do it - ‘When the boat comes in’, ‘The road to Wigan Pier’ if it was ever made into a movie. You will have to be careful to wear the appropriate trahseez though.

    So there is no product placement in the films? I have seen ‘Jackie Brown’ and don’t remember the watches. I also read the book. One thing I do know was that the actor in ‘Jackie Brown’ was also the chap who helped Walter White to disappear to a new life in ‘Breaking Bad’. He looked a lot...

    All these charcoal chalk stripes are very business-like. Good luck finding an opportunity to wear them in lockdown. However, a double breasted orphan suit jacket in the same material AND a jumper will require even more imagination.

    As worn in a Marks and Spencer, charcoal, terylene fabric version by a whole generation of British schoolboys. A marvellous idea. No need for belts. Far better support than the strap and clip mechanism you mostly see nowadays, which really require braces as well.

    Older people tend to have more stuff than when they were young. So they may have wardrobes filled with clothes and therefore less need to acquire more. They may upgrade to better quality but might not want the most expensive, ‘must have’ items.

    You are going to the wrong places. Places like Timpson should be avoided and certainly those little booths in shopping centres that only offer repairs and battery replacement. Independent watch shops can be OK. Street markets are best.

    Not really. It is about why five quid is a showstopper - particularly for someone who has new watches every month. I can understand people who like mechanical watches. What I can’t work out is why such a trifling amount is a big deal if you then look to purchase a quartz watch.

    ‘Good to go’ but not particularly accurate. More so if you ignore servicing. Quartz you just forget about maintenance. Radio controlled will be more accurate than the most expensive mechanical watch. I still don’t know why a £5 battery is a big deal.

    Poor man's watch thread

    You have many mechanical watches which need servicing from time to time. This costs more than a battery replacement. A battery replacement is also usually done while you wait. So I dont understand the dislike of battery replacement. I have a Seiko that I got four decades ago. Still works fine...

    Never heard of them. Googling suggests they cost a small fortune $600. So, for that reason, I’m out.(not that I was ever in the market for non prescription sunglasses in the first place) Not doing sales. However, I am making more of an effort -even for going into town or visiting the shops...

    No Christmas sales in brick and mortar shops this year. I suppose there is little need as there is nowhere to go, nowhere to dress up for. Elsewhere, I saw Crockett and Jones online prices. Small discounts. No bargains.

    Most wear from new gaiter/snood/masks. They come into their own in Winter. No need for a scarf. The red one drew a question as to whether it was a ‘Christmas’ mask.

    Yes. I used to do the same. ‘100 objects that shaped the world’ . Armed with the accompanying leaflet and the room numbers, I could see a few at a time during lunch hours. Recently, BM was limited to ground floor only and follow the arrows. There is a danger of overload when trying to see...
