Men in Nice Knitwear

Because it in the 20th May, and because it is Wednesday, and because it is 2020, I bring you [drum roll] Men in Nice Knitwear!!! With these woollen gentlemen I am spoiling you.

Notice how I am unconsciously drawn to the tobacco smoking men!

I saw a BBC headline the other day that read: Masks, where should they be worn? Oh yer face, duh…

Next week: The Delectable Duchy’s Most Delightful Resort [not to be missed].

    It’s far too hot for any of that, sweetie! Even if Roger Moore is wearing his with pride…

    I am not a “woollens fan” anyway – too scratchy on the skin, and think of all the moths! Jx

      Mr Devine – I believe they are indeed giants. I think they are wearing knitted cycling shorts below the waist – I will see if I can find these patterns for next week. Watch this space, well, not this space, but a new space that will hopefully appear next week.

    I really like that some of them wear HalstĂĽcher (the man with the cigarette and the one in the second picture, to the right) – what is the correct name for this ? It is surely not a “muffler”, and I don’t think “shawl” is “right” ? I have some nice HalstĂĽcher,from silk, but all to rarely I can wear one.

      Those, good sir, are Ascots – an informal subspecies of cravat. An essential accoutrement for the man who doesn’t have to try … too hard. Formerly de rigeur for boating, mantelpiece leaning and general loafing around country houses, but sadly rarely seen outside of am dram productions nowadays.
      Must say that Pipe Chap’s waistcoat is jolly natty. Thank you for the fashion tips, Ms S.

        Thank you very much for answering my question Mr Batarde. While hanging around country houses is a bit difficult, I will nevertheless find an occasion to wear an Ascot, even with pride, as MsScalet invites me to do.
        And thank you for “natty” too.

      Mr Mags – Wear your silk Halstucher with pride! Since the lockdown I have started wearing lots of my natty purchases that have never before seen the light of day, and I feel better for it. Think hats, bohemian headscarves, and tiaras, but not all at once.

    Thank you, Mr Batarde, for your informative reply to Mr Mags. I couldn’t have put it better, and you are welcome to the fashion tips!
    I like a man who doesn’t have to try too hard. What am I saying? I want a man to try very hard indeed – make cups of tea in the morning; not break the loo seat every few weeks; and occasionally remember to buy chocolate for a Friday evening in front of the telly.

    The MITM has wanted a sweater/jumper (I think that’s what y’all call them) like your man smoking the cigarette is wearing, but I am not the knitting kind, so he’ll just have to buy a readymade one for NEXT winter! I do agree that these jolly fellows don’t at all look BIG! xoxo

      Savvy – No, the ‘big’ description is very odd. Maybe the big bits aren’t in the photographs!? I would like to knit again, I haven’t done it for years – I remember it being a relaxing pursuit.

    I wonder if they are nice men in nice knit wear? or maybe nice, big men in nice knit wear?
    Or maybe the knit wear is big? I hope they have big bank accounts…..

    I remember when I was a young child out shopping with my Gran, she popped into a wool shop, she couldn’t find what she was looking for on the shelves, so she asked the assistant for some wool in a particular shade of brown, the sales assistant explained to her that they don’t call it that anymore, but midway through her sentence she paused to look at me, I was bent over double, clutching my stomach rocking with laughter.

    I’d like the tank-top please, in charcoal grey.

      Mitzi – I believe I had an elderly relative who called her dog that name, or something along the same lines. Good job I was only seven at the time and none the wiser.
      I want a fisherman’s jumper, without the fish smell. The fisherman can stay if he knows how to cook.

    Oh “that” word.
    I was brought up to never call those of darker shade a particular word.It is not polite and it just shows your ignorance of language.
    Fair enough, but why was our first cat, a big velvety black fellow, called Nigger? Grown-ups!

    Well, male fashion completely passes me by, like most things masculine. So I don’t know what to say about men’s woollens. I stick to M&S jumpers, as I’ve done for many years. And yes, why “the bigger man”? Maybe they have extra long legs (not shown) which make them seven feet tall?

    So – if the knitwear was “because it’s the 20th May, and because it is Wednesday”, what delights should we expect “because it’s the 6th June, and because it’s Saturday”? Jx

      I know, Jon! I have been appalling, haven’t I? I have been sofa bound and snoozing since the 20th May. I will shake myself and get my act together.
