Things You Don't See Very Often.

Recommended Posts

Every now and then you see something that makes you think or say 'you don't see that very often'. 

What's your last or best example?

Any British man not wearing a down or down substitute jacket. 

 

Bloke over the road who, for some reason, someone told us was a GP but actually works for  the water board (but we still refer to him as the doctor) wears a leather flying jacket with a furry collar. I have to admire that, on every level.

Agreed. The shearling collars just set them off. There's a few items of clothing I just have to admire on people. A Stetson hat. People that wear old school button braces instead of the new shitty clip-on ones. Also, people that wear leather driving gloves when they aren't driving.

Earlier on today I saw a lad using a walking brolly like John Steed. Wearing a T shirt and jeans and no jacket It  just looked odd and out of place. Something you don't see very often, which gave me the idea for the thread.

Great thread. 

 

The once commonplace comb-over. A staple of men's fashion for decades, now just a distant memory. Made for some great weather induced comedy moments.

Evidence that someone has been sniffing glue. Used to be everywhere when I was a kid. Halcyon days. 

 

Your mum just got better at hiding it from you.
