    Putting them in the washing machine with some new coloured items. Then trying to fix it with bleach. Result: a nice psychedelic pattern of brownish circles in varying shades and shapes. And the odd hole here and there....

    Already in the bin. It did look a bit like those bleached hippie jeans, indeed... Perhaps I should have kept them [​IMG]

    My valet once burned a pair of my trousers whilst pressing them.

    Of course, I had him shot.

    Have a good weekend.

    Cheers,

    Seems a little extreme. I've always held to the New Wales Rules of Serventing, which would advocate a flogging for such an offense.

    Also, last week this thread turned a year old.

    My batman ironed tramlines in my dress blues. I withheld his supper and spoke ill of him in the mess. That put him in his place.

    So I'm having lunch at a place I frequent, minding my own business, and someone came up to me complimented on my general style (having seen me before, I guess) and then proceeded to suggest I try to get some jackets with narrower lapels.

    So I need some good natured advice.

    What's the best way to dispose of a body?

    Depending on where you live and your religious convictions, pigs or piranhas.

    My favorite thing about this forum over others is how classy everyone is. Thank you for that; I laughed out loud.

    I don't mind a classy slim lapel suit - a la don Draper from Mad Men. The 60's mod style was pretty cool. Of course, if you are very broad shouldered, the look isn't going to flatter you. Myself personally, I make 4 inch lapels look average, so anything slimmer then 3 1/2" doesn't really work that great for me.

    jfrat, at this point I think you should just post these in the WAYWRN thread.
