With the full sun icon beginning to show on BBC weather and shirt sleeve order commencing, it is time for the final head to head fashion match and this time were going big. Mr J vs Mr B …
‘I have chosen these clothes because I think they are reminiscent of an old-fashioned ice cream seller. And what could be more summery than ice cream? As to why I’m the most stylish member of staff? I feel it’s obvious – no-one has the range and level of daring sartorial finesse that I do.‘
Now, I have to say that we have not got the legendary wooden bow tie that only Mr J could rock. However, the bright mixture of textures and colours are something that rings very true to his outfits; ‘Sartorial finesse’ as he calls it. The corduroys that just make the photo and the velvet is certainly something that makes Mr J’s outfits unique.
But, enough praise, time to see the opposer…
Mr B and an outfit more fashionable than his usual attire may I admit! Although slightly less flamboyant than our former outfit, the colour combo and stylish check jacket are undoubtably a strong look.
- Shirt/tie – a predominantly white shirt with light blue tie; light colours naturally reflect the mood of the season and supposedly absorb less heat (one for the physicists there though).
- Chinos – dark blue chinos; I always find chinos more comfortable than a suit, but this is particularly true in the summer, and a darker colour to contrast the light top half.
- Jacket – grey herringbone check jacket; a new addition this year complete with suedette elbow patches for the old school teacher look.
- Shoes/belt – brown; nothing fancy but the main reason I wear this belt is because Mr Gould hates it so much.
And for this week, we have gone for a different conclusion approach.
What would you choose, flamboyant finesse or a more modest masterpiece? X-co or marathon?
The choice is in your hands …
