Summer clothing

Post  cyfrifia on Sun Jul 14, 2013 11:32 am


This chap who was gored by a bull in the bull running festival at Pamplona could not escape because his trousers had fallen down around his ankles. Just goes to show how important it is to find suitable clothes for the weather and the occasion. No use having clothes that just look all right, they have to be practical too.

Trying to buy practical summer clothes is not so easy. Clothes that are simple, good quality fabric and a practical design disappear from the shops immediately, leaving behind racks of fashionable clothes nobody wants. Yes, you might find clothes on the internet, but clothes are one thing you need to see, touch and try on before you know if it's what you want.

Where were Health & Safety? As a minimum, this chap should have been wearing, eye-protectors, a gore-proof vest and steel toe-capped footware.

It's the bulls I feel sorry for. After this annual abomination, win or lose, it's off to the abattoir and a date with the chap wielding the retractable bolt.

I suppose it's quite good the bulls have the opportunity to gore a few humans before they go to the slaughterhouse.

Here is a photo of the chap with the impractical summer trousers around his ankles, probably wishing he had been more careful with his clothes shopping.

It's just annoying how many stupid clothes there are for sale that you have to trawl through looking for something sensible to wear.

It's a mystery. God knows that the average Brit works hard buying up tons of unsuitable crap clothing ever time the sun is sighted including stupid-looking, impractical, low-rent trainers, three quarter length trousers containing pockets that will never be used, naff tee shirts emblazoned with unamusing mottos and silly, embarrassingly cheap hats that are designed never to last a month.

As for the women, any old rags will do as long as they are screaming tacky pink, contain glitter and allow them to show off their thongs, black bras, body piercings and tattoos to good effect. A pair of improbably high wedge shoes will suffice to assure the casual onlooker that they can hardly walk through drunken excess even on those rare occasions when they are comparably sober.

Anything as long as it's cheap, tacky, vulgar and has 'council estate scrote' woven into it as sure as lettering on a stick of Blackpool rock.

I prefer a pair of decent sandals or boat shoes, chinos, short sleeved linen shirt, a blazer in the evening and a nifty Panama to top off my own, Alan Whicker-inspired ensemble.

I thought people wore all those horrendous clothes because there is nothing else available in the shops.

Particularly distasteful is the range of kiddies clothing with the legend 'Porn Star' emblazoned in glitter across a crop-top or the number of a pair of tight, pink jeans.
