I’m feeling very north west (England that is, not spawn of Kim) here in my New Order shirt atop a carpark in Blackburn. Bootleg band t-shirts have become a more regular feature of my wardrobe lately, perhaps this year I should resolve to buy t-shirts from current bands (current bands: please start making nicer t-shirts). I’ve also been wearing my velvet blazer a lot again lately, after not touching it for a few months. I quite like it when I rediscover a love for a neglected piece, but it also means that I find it impossible to ever throw anything away. Sigh.
