Just one question.
Duffle coats - do they make you look like a preppy Ryan O'Neal or Paddington Bear?
Hey - you with the good taste and the sharp wit!

Marmite these days. Cos Paddington's a massive sell-out.
I may be ugly and hate-filled but... wait, what was the third thing you said?

Pockets Filled With Matches are no more, but we still have copies of our e.p. 'If Time Heals You' for sale, if you'd like one

Are checked flannel shirts "in" at the moment? It's like a Sebadoh concert in here today.

It's them and beards, isn't it?

I dunno - I went into Top Man yesterday and panicked so much that I bought a pair of gloves.

Short beards have always been in, especially if, like me, you're a teeny bit of a chubster and possibly a tad jowly.

I have a beard now. Is this why they're in? Or am I subconsciously just picking up on all the hipster trends.
What shall I do with my beard?!

Lend it to one of The Drums for the weekend in return for a go on their shoes.

My shoes are soaking from walking in to work this morning actually, so that sounds ideal! The beard did nothing to stop the soaking!

Just so you're all aware, I've decided to bring neckerchiefs back into fashion.

Similar to Charles's, I guess.

(And yes, I would like a cowboy, please.)

Indiehorse's top fashion tip for Summer 2015:

I have recently discovered that oversized sleeveless shirts (as in shirts with buttons) are the future.
Not only do they look great (and you don't need impressive arms for this) but also they're not drenched in sweat after you've been dancing all night.

Ps, it goes without saying, you should have taken your shorts out by now. The shorter the better, obvs.

Because of the big metal frame that is holding my leg together I'm ahead of the trend and been wearing shorts for about six weeks now. And sandals. With socks.
