    That's me.

    But I believe Billy often gets mistaken for me, especially by young ladies with large breasts. They're very disappointed when they realise their mistake.

    It's true the best barbers are from Iraq. You should go and get your beard faded and threaded JM, these guys will have you looking like a character from Aladdin in no time!

    Coincidentally (or perhaps not!), he lived in Paisley Park.

    I really like hipsters - it's great that people get interested and enthusiastic about unnecessary and weird shit (like, uh, clothes) and that's valuable I think.

    Indeed! "Tis a fine drop, especially when on tap (which is rare, and certainly wasn't this night). Cooper's Pale is the standard beer in the fridge at home, but I've got say I've been enjoying some of the Pirate Life brews (the IIPA in particular) as well when out and about in Adelaide-town.

    Md, you've had your belstaff for a few more days, still happy with it? What colour did you end up getting?

    I went with the faded olive. Lol that you asked me if I am still happy with it. Truthful answer is I am waiting for it grow on me. This is a very masculine jacket and over powers most of my outfits. I'm still in the process to find how to wear this better. I think six months of wear will soften the silhouette.
    Did you end up getting the navy commander? I actually stocked up and bought a navy liddesdale.

    Thanks for the further thoughts. No think I would need the olive to get enough use out of the jacket.

    Actually one more question, could the belstaff logo on the sleeve be unpicked or removed? Really not a fan of logos on my clothes regardless of the brand.

    Logo can be removed. The jacket design itself is so outrageous , makes the sleeve logo hardly noticeable .Picture of the logo and old Barbour vs new belstaff olive colour.
