Menswear, casual

Ringmer jumble sale #5: cast-offs from a man shorter and stouter than D, but items worth grabbing for someone else we know with a 34-inch waist, 32-in inside leg and 40-in chest. Grey three-button suit, with slightly shiny tonic effect; subtly checked sports jacket; stone-coloured Levi 501s. The kind of clothes which could look dismally straight and boring worn in the wrong combinations, but wth a sharp haircut and good pair of shoes, appealingly young-fogeyish. I keep seeing boys about town in the most horrid golf-club blazers and middle-aged suits, but somehow the look works (clue: you have to be young to get away with it). Say no to the bow tie, though – there’s no excuse for that at any age (exception to the rule: voodoo bluesman C.W. Stoneking, born 1974).
