AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY, FFS*
Morning Style Mongers. Still visiting? Wow, I admire your persistence, but shouldn't you not be off on holiday somewhere as its August, and that? Fashion is on holiday, but I am not. Nor are two of my life long pals who I saw on Sunday afternoon, Ben and Paul. We ended up strolling round Paddington Rec', for all timers sake. We laughed and were happy, talked of times being ridiculous in that manor twenty years ago and more. Carnival bashments, for example, now approaching on the August Bank hol' this coming weekend. We were in little doubt that we were either approaching, or perhaps even past the August Bank Holiday of our lives. On that basis, am proposing we have as much honest, wholesome and bitchy fun with style as possible before we really are The Last Of The Summer Wine (in Gucci). Talking of which, my old right hand man dem, Jo' Da Pole showed me this yesterday. Its that Jared Leto chap who's gone mental for the New Guc' flex. Is old story for many, but thought stick it up on here regardless. Yes, Jared for getting properly involved. Surely a contender for next cover or Arena Gnomme Plus+?

There's a moment captured that I've stuck down the bottom when Jared saw the thing live at the show and went nuts for it. Respect for puttting you money where your open mouth is Jared. Maybe unbuttoned might have worked better? Nice pink StaPress too. Really like, like a 1974 National Coach driver on his way to Pride, without wishing to sound remotely Gnomo-phobic. This aint an isolated incident, J.R. is bang into his new Guc', and fair play to him, Enough of this though, and onto some music, & despite urge to put Laughing Gnome on by Dave, he's his pal Ig' doing Endless Sea, si?
<insert more stuff>
Meanwhile, for more amusing distraction, and I don't know if you lot are on instagram, but regardless, get involved with this KirbyJenner bloke (clicky). He's comping himself into pictures of Kendal Jenner as if he's her brother and is well funny.
Kendal&Kirby Love Cover.
<Some actually holiday based flex suggestion>
I really like this Saint Laurent shirt, but fortunately for friends&family I can't afford it.
Whats wrong with buyers short wise. Surely is all about a pleated short now? Hardly any out there. Just ordered these from Rubinacci for a test prance.

Am booking a holiday myself but a bit anxious. Various reasons. Going in own again, but couple things gotta deal with. Will explain later.
<later still, Mums Care Home Hog Roast bash' the weekend>
Must also salute other menswear blogs for taking a lighter look at style of recent. Over on Permanent Style (click), my pal & HTIS college Simon Crompton, is doing all sorts of new interactive stuff with the industry. Here he is doing the sartorial conga with some Spanish tailor chap. Or is it the Lambeth Walk? Oi!
Lets all do the Conga, lets all do the Conga..!
See ya later sunshine people, have this Talking Heads track below and then I bid you cheerio.
*For Funs Sake, yeah?
