Do you enjoy dressing up? What was the last time that you dressed up significantly? Was it for a special event, or just because you felt like doing it? What was the outfit that you wore?
I do enjoy dressing up now, when I was a school child I did not, not in the slightest. I think that was due to having to wear the ghastly school uniform five days a week. I found a school diary from the 1960s and the brown jumper which was part of the uniform was described in somewhat colourful terminology. “Students are required to wear a gold shirt, black trousers and a nigger brown jumper”. Ah enlightened times….
I now voluntary wear a tie and as such having been give various handles such as “funky tie man” and “the curator of ties” due to my extensive collection which includes a playing cards tie, various music themed ones and Barney Stinson’s legen- wait for it -day Ducky Tie.
Last time I got dressed up was when I visit London, the city where the streets are paved with half eaten baguettes, for two nights out with the delectable, delicious, delicate and er de-lovely Amy. Night one I worn my black pinstripe suit which I originally bought on advice from Andrea to wear at Julie’s wedding and the aforementioned Ducky Tie. Night Two I wore my silver paisley shirt, a patterned waist coat and my blue velvet jacket. Unfortunately I made a slight error in terms of neck gear and had bought a paisley tie instead of one of my cravats.
