Happy international Fetish day guys and gals! Hope you got to shine (if that’s your thing…)
A visit to friends today. I decided to finally take the plunge and wear my three piece leather suit for the first time out and in its entirety.
I see nothing wrong with a leather suit… Indeed I’ve owned one now for a lot of years. This is my latest – the waistcoat and trousers are from Higgs Leather (specially selected leather, not the cheaper option).
Although it’s an absolutely terrible film, this guy was the one who made me realise that three piece suits could be leather.
I saw him in it when he was in the audience at a celebrity comedy event – the host commented on it and he said it was costume from “Spice World – The Movie”.
Of course I admired him in it very much and decided that I would own such an item.
Well it took me a few years, but eventually I did “the look”.
I’m not quite sure who suits it better though?
I’m hardly the perfect advocate, but you know when you see those photos online of before and after? Well these are mine.
It’s just over 12 months since I began my lifestyle change from an unhealthy fat potato with plantar fascitis & knee pain to become what you see on the right.
It was the photo shoot for the covers band on the left which horrified me. I looked disgusting! I was enormous and in an ill fitting suit which at the time I actually thought looked quite good.
Now I can shop at normal shops, delve into the middle of the rack, and when I see something really unusual like the PVC suit from ASOS I can actually buy it off the peg.
It’s not a diet that did this; it’s a lifestyle change. Less food, more exercise. For me it’s about the high fat foods. I now have them as occasional treats and only then as a small portion.
This photo was the shoot taken with my folk band a few weeks ago. The transformation is unbelievable!
Looks fucking awesome!!!
