Gee, thanks....... such a handsome pair!

But no curly hair on me, now or then...... hard to believe I went from that to having my hair razor-cut by a French ex-para in five years. "One day he's in polka dots, the next day he's in stripes.........."

By 1981 I was in Morocco and being asked if I was in the army!

Canadian Tuxedo? Is that in the karma sutra? How do I do it? Is it a bit like the Las Vegas Reverse?

Retro !





Walk shorts typically end above the knee and were traditionally worn with knee-high socks and leather shoes or sandals

I suppose that does come across as a bit strange without any context.

When I lived in New Zealand (late 60s and 70s) that was a pretty standard summer look for white collar workers.

Frank Zappa exuded cool in the 70s. Being said to look like him wouldn't be a bad thing.

Head-to-toe denim, so not quite as exciting as you might think.

Not to be confused with a Chicago Sunroof, of course.
