You either get to look like Clint Eastwood, or a mobile teepee - they really aren't flattering imo

Clint looked fine, so should you.

C'mon even Yasmin Le Bon would look like Clint in a poncho.
They don't flatter.
Wear it for warmth , not style wink

I love my poncho!-need a slimline bottom half though so I wear jeggings/skinny jeans and high boots. I'm not high fashion at all though so prob best not listen to me!

Everyone looks like Clint Eastwood in a poncho. And they make fairly slim people look as wide as a double decker bus.

I wish they'd stop trying to make a return to fashion.

It's like the OK Corral in our school playground some mornings confused

Ponchos...they look great in the catalogue and then you try wearing the things in real life. I gave up on ponchos. They're too much of a fuss.

Still, you could do worse than Clint! grin
FGS now I've got the theme to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in my head.

Maybe if I ditched the cowboy boots and cigar that would help...?

Everyone looks like a ww gunslinger or one of Les Dawson's roly polys
Buy a shotgun or tap shoes and you are good to go

If you're going to persevere with it, may I suggest more frequent shaving? And maybe a different hat? hmm

Huh, last Sunday I wore mine to church and after the service the vicar started making references to The Good The Bad and The Ugly every time I was within earshot...
