"Thanks Kai. To my eye, it isn't a very smart look, but it certainly is what I am very comfortable wearing at the weekend. It's pretty authentic mod, and hardly differs from what I wore at 14 or 15."

"Spring is sprung, the grass is riz.......I wonder where the Vespas is. 
March winds require a Harrington,  and it's probably not warm enough for an open necked shirt, but it's dry enough for Clarks Original desert boots."

    Short Story

    There she was just walking down the street and I could see that she wasn’t just carrying but that she was loaded and if I could see it, in her hunched shoulders and deep thrust pocketed hands, then so could anybody else who had an ounce of intelligence and two seconds of experience. This street was full of people like that and most of them you wouldn’t cross the road to piss up their legs if you were a dog, because the general rule of the sea you swam in was that if somebody didn’t want to roll you then they wanted to bust you and that was okay because everybody understood.
