    I would welcome French- and Spanish-language SF threads where I could practice and be corrected!

    Us English are now cheering on the Welsh (any port in a storm!) anyway I only live about 5 miles from North Wales so I must qualify!!

    Speak for yourself mate.

    As much as we English continue to be kings of the underachievers and relentlessly disappointing when it comes to football, I can't bring myself to support any other team. I doubt there are many Welsh who were cheering on England and would guess that most were hoping we'd lose.

    The last tie I bought can help me entering this challenge, cause I bought it online, where the colours seemed to be quite mat, and less shining. So when I received it, I really thought: "what the hell was I thinking ...". But finally it is not that bad

    I was very tempted to create a sock (and strongly considered doing so) and post this in the SW&D WAYWRN, then duck and run for cover (as one would a grenade). But I think I will not and simply leave this here. Me in Yohji.

    Clags I could forgive the untucked shirt, the pinstriped odd trousers, the ... whatever you call that thing on top, but I can never forgive that disgusting ginger beard. Bad enough when you go unshaven but when you go full on Wyndham Wizard I need some eye bleach!

    Anyway, feel free to reciprocate comments with my entry. I actually posted this in a FC many years ago and the only reaction I received was a single facepalm emoticon. I am the proud owner of FOUR boating blazers. What was I thinking? Well they were bought at a time when I was aiming for a career in academia and thought they would make up nice casual Friday outfits - any derision could be masked by me playing the eccentric professor from England ('hey we all dress like this back home!'). Anyway my career took me in another direction and the blazers rarely see the light of day. I understand the colonials had some sort of celebration on Monday so I entered into the spirit of things wearing red, white and blue ...
