they look such tossers

which at times is a shame as it ruins a good looking man

oh my DP does this all the time.

But its OK, he isn't good looking so just looks like a twat.

And he won't be told.

posers- and very vain- unless it is really cold and they are wearing a nice scarf too.

Only the other night DP was talking about how he used to wear his collar up when he was about 18. He was a bit of a pool shark grin. I'm thinking Matt Dillon in Drugstore Cowboy. Must have been quite sexy 20 years ago but not a good look now. Luckily his collars are now down.
