What's this photo all about? I know the nerdy look is in, normcore I believe the kids be callin' it. But this outfit is the kind of thing the nuns in my school would wear when they were taking us on a geography field trip to look at an ox-bow lake.


And Mr Model isn't much better. His outfit belongs on the kind of teacher who'd stick his hand in his pocket (with secret ball access hole), have a bit of a rummage and then sniff his fingers.

Fashion can be a rum old business.

It's awful. But I think it's hard to make linen look good, though it feels nice.

Im' currently pissed off with their summer dresses with built in bras - it just makes them completely unwearable for anyone with non-average norks.

That is hideous. I'm giving up on uniqlo after spending hours trying to buy stuff online. They refused several (valid) discount codes, eventually accepted my order and then emailed me cancelling it. When I got in touch they said actually they had sent out an order but I've had no confirmation email for this! The stuff I bought was nice though, in no way nun-like smile

SO agree about built in bras

Built in bras are ridiculous. Surely invented by a man.

Wow. I'm no fashion-monger, but that outfit reaches a whole new level of dullness.

You can only wear stuff like that if you look exactly like the model. About 5 years ago, I caught site of myself in a shop mirror whilst wearing a not dissimilar coat, tea dress and brogues. I looked like I should have been trying to buy some butter and egg powder with my ration book.
