Ah, a benefit bash in Southampton during the high season. Where the fuck else would you find people dressed like this? And god bless ‘em for it. It’s been rather a dull summer so far sartorially, and we welcome this demonic display of madras as much as we would one of those cocktails they’re clutching.

Now let’s examine their full tribal regalia a little more closely – not only are they wearing madras, which any amateur can do, but *patchwork* madras *and* clashing bowties. Guy on the left – we’ll call him C.K. Dexter Haven – also has on shorts embroidered with little green lobsters. Guy the right – aka Sniffin K. Bellows IV – is wearing a contrast club collar shirt and a chronic case of lockjaw.

Now please put those jackets away until next year.
