'That's a nice shirt Andrew', so said R, 'it looks good'.
It is an old shirt, but an expensive one bought at Moorabbin DFO when the shirt was heavily discounted, so it was already out of fashion.
R had not seen the shirt for a good while for good reasons. I am pretty honest when R asks if his bum looks too big in a certain garment. I have never had an artistic eye, but it is getting better and I do seem to be able to judge what works clothing wise or what doesn't. If I really don't like what he is wearing, I will tell him so.
I think he does the same for me, so I am a bit puzzled about the event a few months ago when I asked him to choose which shirt out of two I should wear for the night out. He suggested one and said that he has never really been keen on the other shirt and it did not work well for me. Given I had been wearing it for a couple of years, now he tells me. I took on board what he said and I have not worn it since.
That is until my supply of unironed long sleeve shirts was depleted, and I put it on a couple of days ago for just wearing around home.
