It's amazing how little it takes to turn an ordinary item of clothing into something a youngster might pay top dollar for. Take this plaid shirt, which I picked up at an op shop. All I had to do was pick off the pocket which was emblazoned with the words “flip flop fascism” and a picture of a swastika wearing thongs (flip-flops) and it became something my teacher boyfriend was able to wear to work. Except that he never did. Because it turns out he never liked the shirt - with or without its pocket. Which just goes to show that just because a man doesn’t appear to have a signature style, doesn’t mean he doesn’t. More to read on my blog.
