Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

The weather here this morning was very pleasant so I decided on a dress, linen sans tights too. Did the weekly shop and all good so far. Lunch at home and out and about for a relaxing coffee. The weather Gods didn't smile on me and it turned cold and damp Aberdeen style. There is no excuse, I should...

Re: Test Positive for COVID-19

Hi Dennis So far I have not had any need to be tested but never say never. I picked up a prescription from my local Boots on Wednesday and there was no offer from them. If I did need, I am sure that my work would provide because they would not risk having me infect anyone else. As for "back on track...

Re: Men's Kilt by Dangerfied in stores

Way outside my locale but I certainly wouldn't expect these kilts to be lined.
Itchy scratchy is the macho way to go. Ha Ha
Steve.
They could also be a perfectly smooth synthetic or wool blend.

Re: Why do mens kilts have to look so masculine

I think the very reason that kilts are more blokey is because they are supposed to be... There's a skirt style out there to suit everyone's taste I'm sure! Absolutely NZ and it is all based on a myth constructed by some very astute Scottish politicians and businessmen. To paraphrase, a skirts a ski...

Re: GQ articles

In a very strange sense I must agree with Jeff. It has become "mainstream" for me and, I guess, my wider circle. Indeed, trousers on me nowadays would likely raise more comment and concern than any skirt or a dress. I could never in my wildest dreams have envisaged making such a statement when I was...

Re: Observations.....

I once saw a short talk by Quita Christison on this subject and one of the points in it was to STOP - See The Other Person. Not to make a judgement based on first impressions. Here's the url for anyone willing to play it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=413_sACCuH8. It is worth a few minutes. Denni...

Re: Observations.....

But they are all very nice to everyone they meet, so preconceived ideas go out the window. Yet on Monday morning if you were to run in to one of them you would not ever realize who they were on the weekend. Very true Fred and how often have we seen "preconception" reflected around here too? Steve.

Re: Observations.....

There is a grain of truth in The League of Gentlemen, comedic as it is. Further to Rivegauche's comments on tattoos, I have made a similar prejudgement. Mine was around a certain type of barber shop that I had been recommended to try. I resisted for a long time on the supposition that I would be jud...

Re: Coffee at the café.

This is a question for the Baristas.
Should Americano coffee have cream or milk added or not?
Individual taste certainly but I was told that the UK was the only place where this was common practice.
Urban Myth or somebody pulling my leg?

Re: Observations.....

Not to mention that the majority of women now sport tattoos as well. Try finding one without. My 28 year old daughter and daughter in law don't and they don't dye their hair either. I guess they just have other vices that the old man is not privvy to. Nothing whatsoever relevant to tattoos on men o...

Re: The Art of Wearing a Miniskirt

Images of contraband Melopsittacus undulatus aside was the PM in question comfortable in his attire? The crucial point is comfort in all it's aspects. Being comfortable and confident in your choice of clothing in general is the greatest factor in being able to "pull it off" as Jeff says. Short skirt...

Re: Coffee at the café.

Mine is so easy, plain black Arabica before 12 noon. After 12 it has to be decaff but still black and strong. I used to be able to take it as a bedtime drink too but like Al says, those were the days. One thing I find puzzling is when and why have we gotten so prissy over such a simple pleasure. Tha...

Re: The Art of Wearing a Miniskirt

I'm with Fred on this point,
Yeah, go as short on the skirt or dress as you like but don't make it the holy grail.
The real art is to be completely at ease in whatever you wear, not just its length.
Not only that but variety is the spice of life after all.
