Sartorial elegance — 13 Comments

  1. This should be read with the words of Dylan’s “Leopard-skin Pill-box Hat” playing in the background.
    It is not actually stated that the subject of the song is a woman.

    • Richard Digance’s “Drag Queen Blues” [“My friend George is a drag queen called Nancy”]?

  2. Only one comment left on that (cough, cough) news piece.

    “Are you actually having a laugh? With the exception of the red blazer, and maybe the Zara shirt, these clothes are ugly AF. If I wore that leopard bag of a dress into work, they would would slag me off into next year.”

    As for myself, my last job before retirement I started on a ‘pavement design field crew’ where dress code was work boots, jeans, and a t-shirt.

    Five years later I promoted up to a cube farm where the dress code remained exactly the same.

    • I knew a female once [a friend of Herself I hasten to add] who would have picked precisely my choice. I was actually thinking of her as I chose.

  3. I made the mistake of wearing collar and tie, tweed jacket, corduroy trousers and brown leather shoes to school yesterday. It was how I would have dressed in England.

    I dressed differently this morning.

    • Ian, My first thought was wondering how many times you were mistaken for an admin or faculty member.

  4. I’d make a comment about how the article itself is geared towards women (the clothing especially) and possibly towards gender-confused men but said comment might well be considered sexist or genderist or whatever it’s called…

    …so I won’t won’t. Safer that way. Wouldn’t want to bring down the “woke” idiots people upon this comment thread now would I?

    • Heavens to Betsy, that would be dreadful Kirk. I’m not at all sure however, that they would get past Penny.
