    I must admit I did notice your grey jacket this morning on Daybreak/transformation st and think it was a change from your "norm"....& also thought it would suit my husband too! I always buy/have a big say on what he wears - subtly of course

    As times get harder, workplace clothing is becoming more formal. Clearly the stripes have become your USP, a jacket adds more gravitas.
    But for the love of all the saints don't leave more than the top button undone on the shirts. Any more than that resonates with Austin Powers/Peter Stringfellow/Medallion Man/chest wigs.

    I heard you this lunchtime on Radio 5 Live giving the bloke flogging premium bank accounts a hard time and never gave a thought to your clothes. Radio is so much better because people are not distracted by irrelevancies.

    So................it's (the jacket) not just to hide a middle-aged spread or podgy tum after eating too many mince pies then?

    Round here a dark jacket plus jeans is known as a 'Merthyr suit'. The look is not restricted to that town though!

    You're growing up Martin! My husband and his friends are your age and each day or indeed evening out, the jeans and shirt are always finished by a blazer now.

    I'm Mrs MSEs age and I like the more grown up look, haven't seen you yet but will look out

    I'm sure you could find some shirts here...
    I just bought my boyfriend some shirts online from T.M.Lewin - they, like the rest of the high-street, have a sale on at the moment!

    There were some shirts for as little as 20, with most of the ones that are usually more expensive for 25. Non-iron shirts were reduced too. I'm sure you could find stripey or plain shirts on there for your 'new uniform'!

    I can't post a link on here because I only just registered, but I'm sure you could find their site through Google (I did!).

    I think a bow-tie and fez is in order... they are cool!

    As it is I never thought too deeply about your appearance but do think the balance is just right.

    I made a point of noticing this morning (normally wouldn't give a purple one) and thought you looked very dapper. Like it.
    Are the words 'I have a cunning plan' marching with ill-deserved confidence in the direction of this conversation?
