Well! What I know about fashion could be written on the back of an H&M thong; but I see from today’s Guardian that David Cameron’s preferred version of ‘smart casual’ is a pale blue cotton shirt and un-ironed navy chinos.
Well again! I have been wearing precisely that (not all the time, you understand, but quite often - as I type, in fact) for at least a decade. Indeed, if you check out Google Earth’s aerial view of my back garden, you can just discern me ducking into the garage precisely thusly attired. (You can’t see my shoes, though. Nor his, but I bet they’re not M&S flip-flops.)
I knew there was a lot of surveillance and stuff going on, but this smacks of desperation. Hands off my style, Dave, or I’m going to have to employ one of those image consultants you hear about. That’ll show you!
Still, at least I don’t roll my sleeves halfway up. But I’m probably not as busy as him.
