I bring you this fine picture of a young man in shorts and t-shirt not to taunt you but to remind you of warmer times.

His madras check shorts and paisley scarf is a clever match, perhaps a subtle reference to Indian origins of the two prints? The rolled sleeves on the white t-shirt add a bit of texture and provide a simple counterpoint to the busyness of the prints. Update a plaid shirt with a paisley scarf for winter take on the look. If you crave the original look then in the meantime keep marvelling at just how short the shorts are and remember, it’s only 8 months till June.

Alexander McQueen paisley jumper

alexander mcqueen paisley jumper embroidered knit.jpgLike deck shoes paisley is one of those things I always hated as a child but looking at this Alexander McQueen embroidered jumper I’m starting to come round.

It helps that the paisley isn’t the usual stodgy red and green which belies its interesting history but a rather more delicate affair. The branchlets lend a south-east Asian feel and the placement on the shoulders is quirky without being too obtrusive. The slight snag? The $1,225 price tag. I’ll have to make do with M&S dressing gowns for now I guess.
