On with the Crombie and out on the streets!

"Why are anarchists such scruffy bastards?", asks the ever sartorial Ian Bone. It's a good question and one that I gave some thought to here a while back. I reckon that it's all part of a leftie desire to identify with the most oppressed sections of society by looking like the chorus of Les Miserables. Fuck that for a game of soldiers.

Why are anarchists such scruffy bastards? An old saying from the Rag Trade comes to mind "never mind the quality feel the width!"

Not so many decades ago, it used to be a point of pride in working class communities ( particularly amongst the youth) to be smart and well dressed, when not working.
