fucking hell you look miserable!
kinda like me every day I look in a mirror and see im not lucky enough to be wearing jeans, or berkies but a shitty conformist suit… you lucky bastard! 😉

Comment by Age

You have to wear a suit?

Like a whole suit?

For fucks sake you’re in advertising, not management consultancy.

George has this great theory that many agency staff are being told to dress like their clients because they think it’ll make them feel more united – but the reality is that this closeness is fucking up the relationship because clients come to agencies for what’s different, not what’s their normality.

Maybe that’s why so much work is shit?

Then that begs the question why am I wearing a jacket? Hahaha.

Seriously, I’m glad I look miserable in a jacket – but if you want suicidal, get me a job in your place where I have to wear a suit each and every day.

Comment by Rob

And I’m glad you wrote “conformist” suit – it helps prove a point to someone I was discussing this very point with last night.

Oh and Age, I haven’t forgotten about the ‘questionaire’ – will get onto it soon.

Comment by Rob

Have you lost weight? You look like a Moss.

Comment by Seb

I do wear a suit, no tie thank God… I honestly don’t think I could do that, for real.

No stress on the questions, whenever.
Best!

Comment by Age

Sometimes ya just got to step up and take it from the man. Smile.. You might like it.

Comment by Charles Frith

You’ve used that line a few times haven’t you Charles? Hahaha.

And Seb, are you referring to Kate Moss?

Comment by Rob

Yes. I liked the play between “you look like a moss” and Kate Mess. Yeah, whatever.

Comment by Seb

How does the advertising world look upon sweater vests? It’s my secret weapon for interviews…

Comment by Dave Mortimer

You look miserable, as if you’ve just been told off!:) Do you usually wear a blazer? That too in Singapore?

Age – i didn’t an ‘aussie agency’ would make you guys wear suits!! seriously.

I feel btter now 🙂

Comment by bhaskar

youve done this to try and fuck us up havent you? cock. well youve failed, its you who looks the tosser but how the fuck you lost so much weight in 7 days is beyond me, are you following the princess diana diet?

Comment by andy@cynic

is that better or bitter bhaskar?

and youve not met rob have you?

his normal dress sense is more 6 year old kid than 37 year old suit wearing wanker.

infact it was his lack of style that made me like him. not because it made me look even better (though it did) but because it assured me i wasnt working with some mccaans type planner. sorry age.

Comment by andy@cynic

Typo – better.

Andy, you do have nice reasons for choosing who want you work with don’t you :). Wonder if you further influenced his dressing style – ha ha

Comment by bhaskar

That’s fighting talk where I come from Andy …

… except you’re right on all counts so Age and I will just have to let you off, ha!

Comment by Rob

and youre handwriting is fucking gay

Comment by andy@cynic

You might not look very happy, but I still think you look very yummy.
Jemma x

Comment by Jemma King

a) I wear a suit to work every day.
b) I AM a McCann’s type planner.

Andy, Rob… offer me a job and save me from myself!

Comment by Age

so men think rob looks a miserable fuck and jemma, the glam mac queen, thinks he looks yummy. yummy? as in chewed up food? yeah, that figures.

and age, drop the suit and well think about it. theres a vaccany because theres no fucking way i want campbell in the company looking like that 🙂

Comment by andy@cynic

i’m on jemma’s side. rob, i think you look ace – go get ’em tiger 🙂

Comment by lauren

I can be in a T and Nikes almost instantly 😉

Comment by Age

I love women!

Comment by Rob

That last comment has sort of implied every man on this blog [bar me] is gay. Brilliant, hahaha!

Comment by Rob

It’s ADIDAS only at cynic Age, ha!

Comment by Rob

i don’t think you needed to imply that, rob. they did it for themselves already 🙂

Comment by lauren

Adidas only… fucking hell… can I come barefoot then as a compromise?

Comment by Age

You know how good I am with subtlety don’t you Lauren … and Age, that’s career-limiting talk, though if you wear Birkies instead of being bare foot, I might be able to overlook it 😉

Comment by Rob

do you support nottingham forest by any fucking chance? and who the fuck is that brilliant baby in the photo above your head?

Comment by andy@cynic

I think this answers the footie question …

https://robcampbell.wordpress.com/2008/02/11/this-is-a-totally-innocent-question-and-any-resemblance-to-an-agency-practicing-this-behaviour-is-purely-coincidental/

… and the kid is Bec’s brilliant son Xavier, how fucking brilliant is that photo eh!

Comment by Rob

oh, and to balance out my creeping by picking on your girly handwriting: that post-it almost reads I’m not as miserable as I cook!

Comment by lauren

Stop sucking up to Andy 🙂

Comment by Rob

i’m practicing kissing babies too 🙂

Comment by lauren

So now you’re going to be a politician????

Comment by Rob

lol, Lauren is right, it does look like “cook”, which makes me hungry so im outta here to get out of this fucking suit and to some pasta. behave!

Comment by Age

Better than it being misinterpreted as ‘cock’ … that could get me into a whole lot of trouble 🙂

Comment by Robert

David – Sweatervest is alright, but probably too smart for W+K…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Hello, Robert
It is a lovely photo of you, but I am still recovering from seeing you wearing A JACKET again. Was it out of choice? What is happening? I am happy to know that your Birkies are still where they should be.
Lots of love.xxx

Comment by Fiorella Campbell

Ah, Mrs Campbel adding a touch of class again.

Comment by Marcus

And that ladies and gentlemen is why my Mum is the greatest Mum in the entire spooniverse !!!

Comment by Rob

Some excellent sarcasm there Mrs C. Andy will be very happy.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Sarcasm???? Sadly she’s being genuine, hahaha!

And Marcus, can you at least spell my Mum’s surname correctly. Pah … 🙂

Comment by Robert

Sorry.

Eh, that’s typical ‘let’s go meet the client’ wear.

It’s all about the plannery jumpers, really. 🙂
