The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


If This Is Fashion, Then I’m Happy Being Unfashionable …

So I was recently walking through some upmarket mall when I passed the Gucci shop.

I have literally never been inside one of these establishments.

I have literally never owned anything by the brand.

And, after seeing the poster outside the store, I am pretty sure that situation will continue.

Seriously, what the hell is that?

Is the daytime television quiz host look now ‘a thing’?

Is the sort of hairstyle that would get you beaten up in my day now cool?

I guess it might be given big, black, square-shaped spectacle frames have evolved from ‘glasses for the poor’ to ‘glasses for the cool’.

Of course, maybe the geek at the back of the photo is not the person I should be focusing on … but the attractive and stylish lady at the front, but if that’s the case, then Gucci need a lesson in art direction because I challenge any person to see this poster and not focus their attention on the z-grade geek at the back.

Yeah … yeah … I appreciate me commenting on fashion is like David Cameron talking about the poor and that the last thing Gucci would ever want is for me to like something they do, but this is ridiculous isn’t it. It’s not just me, is it?

IT Steve has done OK for himself after his brush with the FBI.

Comment by DH

Hilarious.

Comment by George

I mean the Steven reference, not his dalliance with the authorities.

Comment by George

Worried he’s still cyber stalking all of us George?
Me too. You were my favorite Steve.

Comment by Bazza

steve was the only fucker who was always busy. the feds told me why. this made me like him more.

Comment by andy@cynic

That’s funny because it’s true.

Out of interest, has anyone heard from him recently?

Comment by Rob

I think that “style” is called the extended bowl. And at least they have hair.

Comment by DH

I admit I was wrong. You knew that if you waited long enough your hairstyle would come back in fashion.

Comment by Bazza

Because green isn’t your colour?

Comment by john

Green might not be his colour but he loves it. How else do you explain his fascination with camo everything?

Comment by Bazza

It’s the colour of money?

Comment by john

He wants to hide from the IRS.

Comment by DH

I think with the latest internet leak, it proves no one is going to be able to hide from the IRS.

Comment by Rob

I think art direction is not the most important lesson Gucci requires Robert.

Comment by George

Incidentally, I’m happy to announce that we’ve reached peak strategy.

Comment by john

Why did you do this to me? And what’s their strategy? Humiliation.

Comment by DH

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by andy@cynic

You can never embarrass a man who wears birkenstocks and loves queen.

Comment by DH

yes you fucking can, you just leave him to do it to himself.

Comment by andy@cynic

I have so much still to learn.

Comment by DH

Do you remember that lime green jacket I had at HHCL? It was hideous and yet I still put it on every now and then. This would look positively classy in comparison so of course I’d wear it.

Comment by Rob

remember it? im still paying for fucking therapy for it.

Comment by andy@cynic

I remember that now. It was horrendous Robert.
