Apparently I’m “weird” because I enjoy wearing shiny clothes and I sometimes go to fetish clubs. This was the opinion of someone who I would describe as “dull and uninteresting”.
I’m not going to make out that what I enjoy is in any way normal to most people, but FFS we are all different and we all have different things we enjoy which someone else will think it’s a bit strange.
Don’t knock the train spotters when you see them stood on the end of Doncaster platform. It’s their little bit of weird. Live and let live!
It’s been no secret I’ve had a leather suit for a number of years now. Indeed, almost ten years ago I was taking photos like this.
But I’d been noticing that my suit was looking old fashioned. Pleated front trousers aren’t really a thing these days, unless it’s a single tight pleat. Twin pleats are definitely old hat. Plus gaining and then losing weight has made it ill fitting.
So, a few months ago I decided to refresh it with a new pair of trousers and a new waistcoat. The jacket is absolutely fine and still looks good so I didn’t bother doing that.
After my sheer delight at how smooth and soft the leather is on my Higgs Leather trousers, I’ve decided to order a matching waistcoat. My blazer isn’t too dissimilar so I’m not bothering with that, but it will be really delightful to have a new leather suit which not only fits me, but is as soft and comfortable to wear as any fabric one.
This is the softest waistcoat I own. Sadly it’s missing a button. It’s still not as good as the trousers though.
