Oh yes - Mr Acorn has a suit with military hems, and they look wonderful  (I didn't know that was what they were called though - you learn something every day!   :) )
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I’m also a big fan of trouser cuffs on suits. And English tailoring (which are strange little clips on the waistline that allow for a couple of inches adjustment without using a belt.

It's like DementedFairy and pussybows!  :D

I thought you were being  a bit saucy for  a moment there Fran!  Nasty secretarial Miss Moneypenny Margaret Thatcher tie neck blouses.  Ew.  I wouldn't tie a bow round a cat, let alone a grown woman.

Yes fashion is for wimps, style is way preferable!

@Francesca  Oh my. I had a dress just like the one on the right, same color and almost identical print, though the flowers were a brighter pink and it also had a peplum. I bought it to wear as a wedding guest. The year? It was 1988 or 1989. Fashion does indeed come around, again and again.

Re the shorter men's pants, rather than half mast here we call them "high waters". So very handy when you flood the living room yet again.  :toast:
