I have a new game. And by game I mean random fun thing to do. And by fun, I mean for me.


I hereby declare this day to be the first Waistcoat Wednesday!

In an attempt to lift the spirits and get through Hump Day I have recently started putting a little more effort into my otherwise pretty bland work attire, and nothing cheers like a good waistcoat.

So I wondered if others would like to join me get through Hump Day and celebrate the awesomeness of the wondrous waistcoat. Every Wednesday shall become the day to appreciate the waistcoat, through wearing one, looking at pictures of pretty people wearing them or just daydreaming about them. Maybe you’ll spot someone in the street wearing a waistcoat; stop them, tell them how wondrously waistcoated they look.

Ripping an idea from [info]fififolle who brings us Thigh Strap Thursday (and, frankly,  god bless her for it) I will also post here on my LJ a pic of a Waistcoated Wonder. Some waistcoated icon who acts as a waistcoat inspiration to us all. Or maybe one who just looks really hot in a waistcoat.

As part of Waistcoat Wednesday I’ll invite you all to comment on the Waistcoat Wednesday post. Share your own waistcoats pictures, tell us about which waistcoat you are wearing, share you fun waistcoat stories, or suggest future Waistcoat Wonders (I think the first few will be fairly obvious to anyone who knows me.)

Here is my first Waistcoated Wonder, and I think still my favourite boy who makes waistcoats BAMFy. I salute you Mr Jones.

As this is the first Waistcoat Wednesday and I gave no warning, there may not be many of you also wearing waistcoats, unless through lucky happenstance, so instead share any other waistcoated thoughts you may have. Personally, today is a plain black waistcoat with, of course, my pocket watch.

Or you may decide to ignore this post for the madness that it is and hope that I never do this again. The option is yours really.

Lol, thanks m'dear, I'm glad you like this. Waistcoats should be celebrated, and pretties wearing them more so!

I shall see you back here next week!

Do you know how long it's taken me to find a decent pic of one of my boys in a waistcoat?

Here is the delicious Brian Molko, not only a waistcoat, but a guitar too!

Oh and I tried to get James Marsters, but could only get the 'official' wedding photo - which I shouldn't find as hot as I do!

(hopes this works) It didn't, try again!

Yep, waistcoats are awesome (unless they're the ones in Asylum's Sherlock Holmes)

Sadly I think I've only got one waistcoat at the moment so this also gives me a good reason for a shopping trip :)

Use it as your reason! Use Waistcoat Wednesday as your inspiration! And these pretties as mind food as you go *g*

In honour of the occasion, I'm now looking at a pic of a hot man in a waistcoat.

Unfortunately he's someone from RL: I'm also in the pic, I'm not meant to be thinking of him like that any more, and I'll probably get shot dead (possibly by Shar) if I make it public.

But I'M enjoying it :)

Cool idea! And I have a load of brightly-coloured waistcoats that I haven't worn for aeons. Must find them!

You must! And there must be photos! Or descriptions! I expect to see you reporting here brightly ewaistcoated next Wednesday!

Wow, that is a lot of exclamation marks...

I hope I can find them. The problem at the moment with working away from home is that every damn thing I want is always 120 miles away -- or I never have time to track it down at weekends!
