Darrell informs me that he and Hugh have been talking “de rigueur” long into the night …… every night during his visit ……
….. however he had to admit that last night Hugh introduced him to a new trend ……..
……. that even Darrell, despite his robustly overwhelming urge to be seen as on trend, admitted to being a little sceptical of …….
……. to wit, the emerging potentially iconoclastic phenomena of ….. gentlemen’s headpieces, which Hugh had excitedly assured him were about to take the club scene by storm, that would then infiltrate into more general wear
Darrell, was for once, totally unconvinced, but rather than look rude and ungrateful of Hugh’s much sought after and inestimable fashion knowledge, Darrell agreed to, at least, give it a whirl …. and see how a said gentleman’s headpiece would look and feel …..
…… and so, with Hugh primping and fussing and cooooing over him, and telling him how it was “Soooooo, soooooo you Darling!” and “Sooooooo accentuates your finer features” and how, “…. with a top of more flamboyant type nature and ditching the badge ….. it would be …..just too, too, too, toooooooooooooo for words Darling!”
Darrell, however remained resolutely but most politely dubious ……. in London, where practically anything goes … then yes, ….. but in our small village, with its Tesco Express and only just getting a new tea shop, perhaps it wasn’t the right time!
“Ahhhh c’est such a dommage, mon ami Darrell, the look sooooooo suited you, but I understand ….
……. London styles sometimes do not translate so well in the North …… perhaps I can find you a trend of a little more parochial type nature to take home with you….. you just leave it to moi!” Oh good grief …..!!!!
