I'm just astonished about our so-called leaders who get up and announce all these measures and then do the exact opposite, on-screen. Announce shut-downs of sporting events and then confirm they'll be going to the footy on the weekend. Tell people not to touch their face and then sit there stroking their chin. Counsel people to elbow bump and then shake hands with one another. Advise on social separation (1.5 metres) while crammed cheek-by-jowl along a conference table.
Funny, just saw this before coming here: Okie Gov in "packed" restaurant.
If we all do our part, we can:

Spotted this very odd jacket in a shop yesterday.

It's Gieves, not Gieves & Hawkes, so from their Gieves diffusion line of a few years ago.

Looks like the jacket from a pinstripe suit but with other, random strips of fabric sewn in.
All very high quality work, but who would wear it ?
I did think of buying to flip, and can go back and see if its still there. Not too far from me.
Anyone think it might have curiosity value ?

Found and posted this a few weeks back - but just got it back from repairs and noticed the red dot on the reserve side of the care tag. Cruciani & Bella is a clothing store, and outsources (Drake’s has made for them). Anyone able to identify this maker? The red dot makes me think Kiton, but I am unsure. Thanks in advance!

- Thom grey by Thom Browne Pink Button up shirt - £3.50

Good luck out there, and stay safe!

Guys, I have been dealing with the Cornhola Virus craziness for a little longer. and want to share some tips to make you feel better.

1.Wash yo' face. Every time you wash your hands.
it's something I do as habit, you should too.
If you are out shopping for a long time, or have been around many people? go to the restroom, and Wash yo' face, and hands.

2. Carry your own Pen. at all times. when you are out shopping, signing credit purchases?,at restaurants,paying?. when your mail arrives? -They all hand you a pen. handled by everybody. Also, a nice pen impresses people. so it's winning.

3. Use your knuckles to push elevator buttons. then rub on your back.. far from your face.
(If you get vertigo on escalators, use the stairs)

4. Pay for everything with the one Card. disinfect it often. less contact with money.
sometimes, take your card out of your wallet, and use kitchen cleaning spray on it. more paranoid? more often. but no cash.

5.Masks are more for preventing sharing the Virus, than to protect from getting it. because air still gets in. I wore Bandanna's (Wu-Tang style) Wearing a new one each day, and washing worn ones. to always have a new mask.
but? You could fashion yourself some nice masks from unused pocket squares. - you work it out. If you want my pocket square mask design? ask.

6.Fresh Air. Keep a safe distance. where you are not close enough to breathe expelled air.
busy office? have the windows open. so expelled air is whisked away and replaced with fresh air.

7. Your Car. everywhere you have been. everything, and every surface you have touched?
gets transferred to your Car. so clean it often. get some cleaning wipes. and wipe your car controls. (be careful, some cleaners can damage markings on controls) Steering wheel and handles should be fine. along with the upper/under of your indicators. taking care to avoid the front label. regularly put a window down for a few seconds to get fresh air.

8. Clean your phone, and wallet often. with window, or kitchen cleaner. your keys too.

9. Bow. might seem silly. but Bowing instead of shaking Hands can stem the Virus.

10. Multi vitamins, and anti fatigue supplements. strong in minerals. to keep you fighting fit. and ready to outlast a virus.

These are my Tips. I hope they help you.
Do not be alarmed. This will affect all of us. so take care. and be thoughtful.
