Samsonite Suitcase, Silver, hard-shell:
Just about 'hanging on in there'. Lynnie uses this when she goes gallivanting around Europe and her method of fastening the case is to sit on it and so bending the locking mechanism and forcing the hinges. The wheels and pull-out handle still work- there is life in the old girl yet.
Inov-8 Mudroc shoes:
Now wearing quite badly and apparently quite inappropriate footwear for the tricky terrain encountered in The Lanes and the nicer restaurants of Brighton. Certainly not for hotel use.
Church's brown brogues:
If you want to look like a country vicar, then these are fine. Appropriate (just) for hotel dining.
Levi 501's 33" waist, 34" leg. (Blue)
NOT appropriate attire for the hotel dining room. No sirree! And anyway, the leg length is too short and they look ridiculous. (Lynnie bought these in New York)
Prada trousers: 33" waist, 34" leg. (Beige/Olive)
Much better: What was I thinking of, taking my jeans? Correct leg length. Okay with ecclesiastical brown brogues.
Shirt: Pink, Cotton: 16" collar
Chilli sauce spilt right down the front from the Calamari starter two minutes after taking my seat. Otherwise okay: Just.
Mountain Hardwear XCR anorak:
Okay - but only for daytime on the sea-front. No-where else!
label.m matt paste:
"De rigeur" for poncy hotel dining. Wife happy only when it is applied to your thinning locks.
Absolutely vital equipment. Especially after being forced kicking and screaming into an optometrist for two sets of new trendy eye-wear (that's glasses that are supposed to work better)
