Not exactly anyone’s idea of ‘well dressed’ I’m thinking but to my teenage head it was THE most amazing look ever. A few years back when a jacket was handed to a student hell-bent on reproducing this look but not getting it right SIBLING Joe told him ‘and remember… this was worn by a straight man….’
