are VERY fashion conscious. It's amazing for me to watch them discuss design, colors, using truly sophisticated fashion terms. They're like people who tell you what a piece of modern art means. laughing smiley

And just to be clear... I'm not making light of them IN THE LEAST. Fact is - I'm truly impressed.

Once every decade or so I'll try to make a fashion statement. I shouldn't because it's not an area of expertise in which I have the slightest degree of talent. My last attempt was a couple of years ago, I think. I bought a pair of 'nostalgic looking' sneakers... something like those old Keds, remember those? But THESE were a thing of beauty -

Black.. with an Italian flag on the side and red shoe laces on one and white on the other. Oh was I ever STYLING.... ummmm, but I wasn't that big of a hit with the kids... or rather, I was, but not for the reason I intended.

I did, however, get a away with it because a) I'm likeable and b) I'm old. So I was applauded, I think even admired... but not one person who saw them would ever under any circumstances wear them themselves.

What were we talking about? Oh yeah, Football uniforms.

They have an 'unveiling' these days as the new uni's are introduced these days. It's a HUGE event. I am ALWAYS asked about my opinion, "What do you think Pops?".... and I use the same reply every year, "Those look great". And maybe they do, or maybe they don't... I wouldn't know. - JamesJM
