    I lived in Leeds for 10 years. Went to the cockpit a grand total of once. What a dive.

    When did you go? Are you a Leeds alumni?

    What about purple?

    Used to have a Purple suit as well, very dark purple like plumb.

    I remember one episode of Big bang theory where Raj was rocking a pink suit with blue t shirt,so you might consider that as an option too.

    I have a pair of light pink linen trousers ... and a matching linen coat. I wear them both, but have never worn them as a suit.

    There's this thing in Philly called the Zombie Crawl. A bunch of aging hipsters dress up as Zombies. I could see this suit working well there covered in blood and gore.

    I screwed this combo up by doing dark (way too dark) pants, but that has been remedied for this summer [​IMG][​IMG]

    Sigh.

    Why are you so awesome?

    I personally wouldn't wear anything pink

    With an Oscar Wilde quote in your signature I'd think you would be more progressive!

    Pink works great for my skin tone.

    "club crap" on the bottom of my trousers and shoes.
    Thought I was the only one who had a name for that stuff. I call it discotheque nectar.... [​IMG]

    When I was 19 I had a pink suit which was more pink than that, pink panther pink. wore it with a white shirt and black tie. Was very much like something Deniro would wear in Casino.

    I remember this older woman who used to be Brett Anderson's girlfriend picked me up at the cockpit in Leeds one Saturday night. She lived in a nice part of Leeds and the next morning we got some breakfast in a pub frequented by very conservative types in blazers and khakis. I walked in wearing this crumpled pink suit, smudged eyeliner and "club crap" on the bottom of my trousers and shoes. Totally "rocked it".

    Long time ago 1999....The things you do when your young.


    Now there's a story! [​IMG]
