Yes I suppose we all did.

I went to Lake Garda a few years ago with my "man friend" and did it, just for the thrill. I also wore linen trousers. Honestly I have never felt so alive. I have never told my wife about it, I don't think she'd understand.

For a long time I had an Italian gf, this meant frequent trips to Italy, AND whilst I'd never do such a thing in the UK, it seemed to right thing to do whilst strolling out on a Sunday afternoon in Milano. As did possessing and wearing a pair of orange cords. My previous gf was French, with her the natural thing seemed to be to tie her up and bum her. So I guess each Nation has slightly different views on what is acceptable attire and behaviour. When I Rome as they say, do as the Romans. Is that not so Rod?

Of course Timmers. One wouldn't dream of wearing a jumper thusly in the UK - one would be torn limb from limb and rightly so. But of course in Italy it is perfectly acceptable to do it, carry a little clutch purse and suck other men's willies. ID will be along shortly to confirm this.

Not the sucking of willies of course, or the clutch purse.

That aside, I think T40 has hacked into my diary and is passing off my past life experiences as his own.
FFS! Is nothing sacred?

You know trench coats? What's that button-down panel for on the front of the shoulder?

Look, here:

although you can't see Clouseau's button.

What way are you wearing this year Damo? Incidentally, my new favourite scarf was from Sainsburys. It is lengthy enough to wear any way. I have also done 3 so far. Can anyone beat that?

I've done only two scarving versions this a/w season thusfar.

This one (which is the obv everyday one!):

and this one:

although in these gifs this is clearly a LADY doing a LADY SCARF, the "techniques" remain the same. She does sixteen other ways of knotting in her gifdemos, some of which you might like to try moles.

I especially like that they had to make a video to explain the first method. FFS.

ps: does anyone else see her winking at me at the end of that gif? No? I bloody knew it!

I find it even more perplexing that they needed one for the basic drape! That was one of my 3 but just for a short hop to another pub. My others have been what I agree is the everyday method and the toss, I think it would have to be proper cold to try your crazy loop!

I think you push your right lapel over to the left of your neck and then bring the left lapel over to push under that flap making you watertight around your neck region. Someone English will be along to confirm/refute this later.

Yes, that's the one I meant. Ridic!


PS: the wraparound was when we went to a fireworks display with the children. Ordinarily it's a bit much if you've coated correctly.

That's right. That's why it's there. No-one actually does this in 2016 of course, because in weather severe enough to require it they'd probably be wearing Gore-Tex or sitting in a car.

It's been a long time since I wore a sweater over my shoulders a l'homme du sport.

OMGoodness! A scarf works so much more excellently with a beard. This is a Winter styling revelation!

Today I have been scarfing in combo with a mustard-toned parka AND BEARD. Hype!

I already had the beard, I will need to trim it soon as it is at full winter strength and if I'm not careful it will start looking 2016 hipster and nobody wants that. Also, I totally agree.

There is absolutely no doubt that a beard and scarf in combo sends a more powerful message. Question is which message?

Isn't "blouse" a horrible word?

It's like slacks, bosom or do (for party).
