A philosophical vagabond

Here I am looking like Rick Wakeman at a Slytherin house party. I expect your eye is drawn to my dramatic headpiece. And almost certainly you are wondering were you can obtain such a handsome garment? I’m about to explain, and surprisingly it’s not the gift shop at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando.

At first I assumed ‘Snufkin’ to be a made up word. But after some light Googling, it turns out it’s a made up word that is the name of a character in the Moomin literary universe.  A, “Snufkin is a philosophical vagabond who wanders the world fishing and playing the harmonica.

To be fair, Mr The Bureau, pictured below makes a much more convincing job of getting away with it. Even so, he’d still look more comfortable riding a broom.

It’s easy to take the piss out of specific, statement pieces within a designer’s collection. Easy, lazy, and ultimately pointless. Welcome to my site.

    More convincing maybe, but he can’t bring himself to look at the camera.
    It’s clear why.
    He will piss right into his very own pants.
    And therein lies the secret behind the long shirts too.
