not that there's anything wrong with that...
Hey do alterations tailors typically do darning? I've gone and put a few holes in my navy merino jumper while de-pilling it with a razor
With aftershave you should really be using a cream or moisturizer based product not an alcohol based astringent which will dry out your skin.
There is only one thing worse than getting into a lift with a women who has splashed a bottle of tacky perfume or eu de toilette all over. The one thing worse is to get into a lift or have to sit beside some bloke ina meeting who has splashed a bottle of tacky teenage nightclub cologne or after shave over himself.
If you want to learn more about perfumes and scents but cant translate any of the stuff on Basenotes and sort the useful from the drivel and brand worship -- then read Perfumes : the guide / Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez
Speaking of which, does anyone have any recommendation for face moisturiser? Previously used Lancome and Shiseido but i think I need something suited better to sensitive skin.
Can I give a bit of advice.
If, for some reason, you are a public figure, say a parliamentarian, who has been in the media spotlight for 3+ years, and who, in effect holds the balance of parliament and the government in your sweaty little hands, and at some point you announce a week prior that you intend to make a statement in national parliament, that will go at least half an hour and which you know will be televised in its entirety and which the whole nation will see at least part of.
Then please give some consideration to ironing your shirt collar and perhaps stopping it from curling up and looking like you just grabbed it off the floor and are surprised you are on TV and the front page of every newspaper in the country.
This bloke has prior form with his shirt collars.
Given the precise curl of his right hand collar tip - I'm inclined to claim that this is in fact the same bloody shirt.
Isn't the issue more the lack of decent stays fxh?
Duck into Aesop and snatch a bunch of free samples, give them a burl.
And she'd stay behind in the house?
Its a trap!
Have been using Kiehls stuff and find it to be pretty good. If you go and ask them nicely they might give a few samples to try. Certainly when you buy something they always seem to throw in two or three little samples of different products.
Nivea in the white bottle in the supermarket
+1 but then Thomson is a guy that's always been in a bit of a hurry...nudge nudge...wink wink.
There could be a lot of reasons.
My guess is that it has sewn in stays that have been heated and warped.
Most likely a non iron shirt just pulled out of the dryer, after a long spin on very hot, and whacked on.
Even a floppy, non structured collar should sit a bit better than that.
You can get Nivea in a no fragrance version.
I use Shiseido, Biotherm and also QV cream when I run out of Shiseido and Biotherm samples.
Don't we call it sprezz? Also they still make shirts without removable stays?
