What were we thinking? Well I can tell you pretty much exactly because it wasn’t as long ago as it should be. At the time “Rocky” – the “Hong Kong tailor to the stars” -had just made us some suits for one of our live shows. We thought it would be a great idea to get him to make us leather coats. Simon who had recently seen Blade as I remember was thinking “I’ll look like Wesley Snipes!”. I on the other hand was thinking “I’ll look like Sting in Quadrophenia” (or the other fella who runs the scrapyard) but of course everyone else was thinking…Boyzone!
In Trev and Simon Podcast No.2, which you can find here, we talk about fashion mistakes. One of them being when the two of us had made-to-measure leather coats. But made to measure what? Here I am in mine, looking like a kindly nazi. Oh, and some other ones too. Reading from left to right; me, Dr.Who, a sexy lady. I wish I could say I had to trawl the web, but it’s amazing what you can pick up at Amazon these days.
Look! I’ve put Leather and Sexy as tags on this post in a desperate attempt to get more people to come and look. Will they be disappointed? I don’t know, but it has given me the urge to poll.
