Suit for work, usually Armani, Kenzo ties mostly.

Bedroom - I know what I like in my wardrobe.

There's always been Ethel
Alf - better tidy your room now


When the Sun beats down
And Alf lies on the bench
He can always hear them talk

Me?

Im just a lawnmower
You can tell by the way I walk

Depends on the gig - at the moment I'm at a software house where it's "business casual" which different people take to mean different things. Some folk it's a suit without a tie, me a shirt and a pair of non-jeans trousers.

When visiting /working for banks, I tend to wear one of my bespoke suits with a standard (Pink/Hawes/etc) shirt & tie combo.

Armani suits are fine if you're a standard shape. My body is far too long (& wide now!) to ever look good in anything off the peg.

I would love to have smart suits on but i dont like to be seen as walking stupid because no one else except very higher management wear suits.

However, I do come with nice formal shirts with cufflinks and ( non Jeans ) trousers but dress down friday.

In my Permie days, i used to be as Casual as possible, but have been told by a more experienced Contractor that Contractor needs to "at least look more Professional than permies " :D

I just touched 16.5 stone in weight there, I am 6 foot 2 though. I'm on my rowing machine for 90 minutes each day now because I can no longer fit into some very expensive clothes. I will not stop until I get to 14 stone.

Always very smart, but no designer stuff. Only outward sign of contractor-dom is a very expensive Breitling watch. You should just see the permies eyeing it up when you're talking to them at their desk. After a few months, usually, one will pluck up enough courage to ask about how much it cost........... :laugh

My mate always boasts about his 4 grand Rolex. RUR4000.

I think he broke it when he wore it in the shower.
