Instead of watching the same old repeats and lame programmes cosy up to an old classic, it’s a great way to avoid the usual Christmas dirge and can be a useful sartorial lesson.
I’ve just finished watching ‘It Happened One Night‘ a wonderful classic featuring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. Clark looks his usual dashing self in the film, wearing a casual tweed suit with pockets and a gathered back. The real clothing controversy comes in the scene where he undresses, unable to take both a shirt and undershirt off quickly enough for the scene he abandoned the vest creating a nationwide drop in demand for the garment which is surely a greater lesson learnt than anything you could garner watching My Family repeats, or god forbid, Little Britain USA.
