Oh. Sorry to hear that. Water is a shit. I think I remember you mentioning a leak - have they found the source?

Unbelievable they're still pissing about sorting the water problem above your flat Stuart. It feels like months ago you were telling us about it.

Also: I still cannot believe you're older than about 22. I know you are, but my mind won't accept it.

Also also: remember when we talked about a Capsule Wardrobe on here? It's when you plan your entire wardrobe so that everything goes with everything else, which simplifies outfits and means you need less clothes, because you don't have *this* shirt you can only wear with *those* trousers, and stuff.

Well, anyway. I think we agreed it might be a bit try hard and wanky. But here's the thing: I've suddenly got a capsule wardrobe by complete accident!

Because I like streamlining and getting rid of things, I tend to chuck clothes at the charity shop if I haven't worn them this year. And because I'm old now, when I buy new things they tend not to be lairy or patterned or have logos on and things. In fact, I only seem to buy clothes that are black, grey, navy, or tan. And white t shirts or shirts.

This means I have capsuled myself entirely, and without any deliberate effort. And it's brilliant! I never have to think about what to wear, and what I choose always looks alright. Everything works with everything else, and if I want to look smarter I choose a shirt and sweater, or casualer I choose a t shirt and hoody. Piece of piss!

No doubt all of a sudden it will become a 'thing' to wear all kinds of bright dayglow stuff like Definition Of Sound or MC Hammer, and the kids will laugh at me for looking like an old.

But so be it! Onwards, into obscurity!

I have a capsule wardrobe, too, then!

It's called "being old and unfashionable and not giving a shit".

I rewaxed my Barbour International this afternoon. It was simultaneously quite hard work and quite rewarding at the same time. Especially as it looks like a new jacket again afterwards, when before it properly looked knackered.

I cba with melting the wax in a pan of boiling water this time, the way you're supposed to: instead I just used a clean micro fibre cloth and wiped fingersful of wax straight on, before rubbing it in hard. Then I left it for a couple of hours hanging somewhere ambient, before blasting it all over with my daughter's hairdryer. Which melts excess wax into the fabric, as you know.

It looks genuinely superb now, and of course I immediately tested it by running it under the tap. The water didn't just not soak in, it leaped away from the surface across to the other side of the bathroom.

My mate used to do his in his washer dryer.
Then an empty hot wash after to remove all the wax from inside the dryer.

I know you can do that, but I preferred to do the hairdryer so I could watch to make sure the wax melted in in the areas I'd put loads. Shoulders, back etc.

Team it up with a pair of camouflage trousers and you can be one of those men who hangs around every town and city centre shopping precinct in the UK.

Berghaus 3 in 1. I use a similar one for work. It keeps me warm and dry and hasn't broken.

Interesting. I have a berghaus thing at the moment, but nearly 10 years of rain and salt spray and being jumped on by dogs has meant that it simply defers getting wet, rather than preventing it.

E: so is the fleece part detachable?

Yes you can detach the fleece.

I have a Musto Loska BR2, very happy with it. I've detached the fluffy hood bit mind.

Don't fcuk about Ceej. You need a jacket that's named after a Himalaya or an Alp or something, otherwise how can you even take it seriously?

If it's not called "Lhotse" or " Kangchenjunga" or "Nanga Parbat" or something, I just can't even look at it.

"I like your jacket mate, what's is it?"

"Oh thanks, it's a Rab "Scafell" or something"

"Oh, I see."

My go to waterproof is the Marmot Nabu. Don’t think they make it any more but if they do, get that. If they don’t, get something with polartech neoshell. Witchcraft.
