I got some spam email this morning from a quite good firm I deal with now and again. I have to give them some points for humour:

It started: 'May the 4th be with you.'

If only it all had the same spark of humour! I rely on Chums for much of my wardrobe (although I have discovered iTailor) A god might be able to determine their waste of effort but many times a year I get the snail mail shot catalogues (despite only using them on-line).

My fairly regular house guest pillories me, anyway, for following their style but this visit he has the added glee of finding they now have a marital aids section.

It must be nice to have friends who will supply you with good used clothing. Ask them to update their togs on a more regular basis.

It's the duty of the wealthy man
To give his old kecks to some artisan.

He could have had Lord Finchley's entire wardrobe. After the lamp mending that is.
