The longest my hair has been in years... sorry about the leer, 'she' says I look like a pervert. :oops:

I'm desperate to go out in some decent clothes. Been hanging around the house and garden in joggers, flip-flops and a variety of t-shirts I don't care about.

Oh, to be in some decent strides, shoes and shirts... Stay safe, folks. :stirpot:
Looks like you've shed a bit of timber there Ed.

Aye, lost about 36 lbs, it's amazing how much fat you shift with ulcerative colitis. :colgate:

Great way to lose weight but it really shows you what your bum is for.

Well, that's lowered the tone a bit folks but, I have thrown away - charity shop as no one I know was portly (!) enough to fit my strides or shirts - so, when the pandemic ends, I'm going shopping.

Keep safe, chums.

Then take you back to the cells and give you a slap, when no one else can see, and also maliciously slash your made to measure jacket. Just saying...
Oh I forgot they first of all have to arrest you when you're 2 minutes from home when you are doing nothing except walking and talking to your older brother at 2 O'clock in the morning. Then in court make up a pack of lies about you.
And that wasn't just one bad penny, but 6 of them in a van, coincidently around the corner in a residential estate where one of them lives.

I'm slowly making my way through this forum.. Only up to page 756 so got a long way to go. I am loving it though.
There was a bit about sheepskins. I noticed almost all photos show light brown ones. I've got a dark brown one that I love.. Would appreciate your thoughts on it
I did find this photo although it is being worn by a lass

Some of us back in the day did wear dark brown ones. I have one myself. The only thing I might say about yours is that the pocket flaps look a little... well... flappy. But that's not a bad sheepie.

Bought a vintage 60s deadstock suit from France about 5 years back. Didn't really fit at the time of purchase, but I've lost a few pounds since I gave up booze 504 days ago (not that I'm counting) so I thought I'd try it on again.
Pretty much nearly fits. High-waisted trousers with button up fly and made from a sort of tonic-ish hopsack.

I'm not very qualified when it comes to suits, but the jacket looks a nice shape, nice material and looks fitted.
Why does Trump look like he's wearing a cheap £1 polyester suit.. F'ing awful?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
