    Though to me nothing says ‘total knobhaed’ like baseball caps. Squared if its a ‘trucker’ type.

    Funny story – me and my brother got chatting to Adam Hussain and Gray Taylor at a gig in Switzerland when they were performing as Tennents Supermen at a ski / snowboard festival. We saw them at another gig the next night and they recognized us and started buying us loads of drinks. Got pretty wasted and then Adam starts on the joints. He ended up walking out of the venue totally out of it and fell down a steep snowy bank and we had to go and rescue him. The bouncers wouldn’t let him back inside at first as they saw what happened and said he was too drunk but then one of the event organizers came over and told them who he was. This was before the days of decent camera phones fortunately 🤣

    Innocent until proven guilty and all that but:

    Sounds like he has means (I’m sure MCTD has access to cash/card.)

    Motive; defendant stated, “A very useful warm and waterproof coat.”

    Opportunity (I’m guessing there are clothing shops near where MCTD lives.)

    Pretty damning evidence in all honesty.

    Essential island wear in winter – going out in the garden with the dogs or cleaning out the chickens. In defence, ours are Moonwrap and wouldn’t dream of wearing it down the Main Street.

    Pretty much standard kit at the school drop off and pick up at my daughters school, bonus point for flip flops as well.

    baseball cap is a boon for a spectacle wearer in rainy conditions. It’s not a fashion statement, it just means I don’t have to wipe my glasses with an increasingly damp cloth or tissue every couple of minutes.

    If I was still stood on football pitch sidelines watching kids all winter I suspect I too would be a dryrobe afficionado. Coupled to an old pair of site boots (slip on, steel toes for lawnmowing protection, liberated from my last job) rather than flip flops though.

    This place is a social education. I was unaware that dry robes existed.

    Now I just need to learn why.

    Brighton….. Shoreditch-on-Sea.

    Mate moved there a few years back. Don’t like the place personally. Seems very try-hard, oh-look-i-am-so-alternative-i-blend-in-with-all-the-other-freaks.

    It’s also just completely normal headgear for anyone who wants one.

    Walking around thinking everyone is a **** if they’re wearning a cap in 2024 is just being a judgemental throbber for the sake of it. But, this is STW and we have more than our fair share of those.

    I’ve been watching people commute in Dry Robes and just ‘very long coats’ all winter, so roughly the last 9 months. They make perfect sense when the rain is coming down sideways and I’m jealous of their warm, dry arses and legs. It started raining in July and it hasn’t stopped since. I’ll be buying my own if it keeps up.

    To quote the Sage of his generation, Mr Pete Docherty in the line from A Time For Heroes…

    There are fewer more distressing sights than that
    Of an Englishman in a baseball cap

    I don’t know if you listen to Elis and John on Five Live on a Friday afternoon (you should do as its bloody brilliant) but they do a mock ‘Bergerac’ type drama called DI Robbyns, which has a very distinctive theme tune. Goldie Looking Chain did their own version, which is utter genius, and sent it in to them…

    The reference to the family stickers on the back of the car was an excellent subtle addition…..

    Those long padded coats look well cosy, but they don’t seem to do them for men. I am less convinced of the practicality of a dryrobe as a coat. Didn’t see any about last winter round here.

    Baseball caps are great at this time of year with the low sun. Mine’s got an Ironman logo on it for maximum knobbishness 😀

    I can’t help but think their boom is related to the peoples increasing size. They’re very forgiving.

    the plain black one in the video you wouldn’t even look at twice if it wasn’t for the branding – it’s the minging dayglo ones that are the worst.

    Layers and windproof outer are the way to do it – my  kids don’t play football but if I was going to do the parent outdoors standing around in winter job, I’d have a set of waders! super thermal, fully sealed to the armpit

    Yep been wearing a bump cap in the works van as the sun visors are crap. I look fairly silly, but that is my right as a middle aged man.
