The sight of a normally conservatively dressed civil servant in a trainer/roller-skate hybrid is proving highly distracting. (CSB etc)

Fuck off I'm not having that. Get pics of GTFO! Evil Jawdropping!

the only thing i can think is that this was in the run up to him getting married and still ongoing so a 'challenge' from the girl's perspective?

could be a challenge, one of my ex's was an appalling dresser, after a year of subtly getting him into clothes he completely changed, by the time I finished with him, was a full on fashionista. I don't think anyone is shallow enough just to go out with someone because of how they dress, it's all just part of the package

Most women think they will just change his clothes anyway, but there is probably a 'minimum' acceptable level of good dressing most people would meet just by shopping on the high street/copying mates.

I work on a secure floor plate where mobile phones are not permitted and cameras are out of the question (admittedly that doesn't help my credibility) so no vis I'm afraid. I swear down though, he's in a 'vintage' tee, distressed jeans and White Heelys with blue trim that look like a pair of mid 90s skate shoes (really thick and puffy, over engineered) except they appear to be skate shoe/platform boots. I noticed after my initial post that he has removed the rollers from inside so is presumably wearing them because he likes the look of them (could be for the extra height that the ridiculous sole adds too though as the guy is quiet short). I would argue that's worse.

Funny you mention that- he does always demand the top bunk whenever I stop over after a night out too. (definitely no homo)

Depends how you do it, most of the time they don't even notice, I can be a master manipulator, but trying to stop as it's too easy sometimes.
