A visit from a friend

You may know him online as Alternalife or Rockinrubber but I know him by his real name. We met up yesterday and he not only joined me for my camping trip but he also brought up some of his latex gear. I even got to try one item on!

It was a bit tight as you can see, but I’ve got to say even though this kind of stuff isn’t really my thing, I actually loved how I looked in it.

Adventures in Doncaster

So it was Jake’s 27th on Saturday. He decided he wanted to go around Doncaster.

He also told me he was going to wear his new rose gold pvc jeans (ASOS, pretty much sold out now).

Not wanting to overshadow him I decided to go fairly vanilla – just a pair of jeans and an Oxford shirt. But when I jokingly said that I was thinking of wearing the PVC suit he said “mint!”.

Ok, I followed his intention…

It wasn’t too warm a day so I thought perhaps I could get away with it for a while.

We arrived in Doncaster and immediately I was a talking point. Loads of people commented on the amazing suit. Jake looked stunning in his outfit. Very metrosexual – quite flamboyant.

I was driving though so the only drinks I could have were Mocktails and low alcohol beers.

The night went as follows:

The Gatehouse -> The Wool Market -> The Gin Rooms -> The Red Lion

We left after the lion as my pvc suit was getting a bit clammy. It’s a great looking suit but it’s not really practical to wear on a day in day out basis.

Who wore it better?

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 something else

“You’re something else” was a comment made on an Instagram post when I shared a photo of my newest suit.

Why? You ask…

Well this is what I went to Corporation in last night.

It’s PVC and it came from ASOS. Yes. ASOS. Mainstream clothing shops are now selling PVC!

It was a great night to be honest, apart from the hot and sweatyness of the outfit. Quite a lot of people were taken aback by me in it and there were a lot of people who wanted to try it on.

I also had my fair share of creepys who stared at me, and a few people who wanted photos taking with me in it. I can’t think why…

My PVC suit arrived!

You will not believe how long I’ve wanted a really awesome shiny suit for, and when ASOS bless them made one; well it had to happen!

I bought the largest of each, 36″ trousers, 46″ jacket.

I really don’t know where I’ll wear it, but my blog readers know me by now… It’s gonna happen!

I have to say though, it’s sexy as fuck!

John and Edward… WHAT are they?

You can’t have missed the last few months (years… or at least it feels that way) with the strange creatures from Ireland, John and Edward Grimes (Jedward) taking over the bandwidth of Facebook whenever X-Factor is on.

This, however, is the bottom of the barrel when the Irish twonks truss up in badly fitting shiny leather (or at least some bizarre coated material) suits and strut their “fonky” stuff to a bastardised version of the classic Queen/Bowie Under Pressure. Whilst this song isn’t one of my favourite Queen tracks, it still doesn’t deserve this hideous train crash doing to it.

Dreadful… and for those with a strong constitution you can see the video on Youtube, but I’d recommend you don’t.
