Children love to show off their age on their clothing. Every additional month is an accomplishment. Until about 10 that is and then it all just sort of stops. One of the last remaining taboos is to ask someone their age.
I'm thrilled to be the age I am. And there is a growing amount of research that suggests people over 50 feel more confident, sexy, relaxed, uninhibited and powerful.
As part of my crusade to champion seniority and dismiss the dreary stereotypes that we are supposed to conform to, I would love to see people as proud of being 80 as they did of being 8. They've a damn sight more to be proud of for starters.
These numbers are printed with flock fabric onto vintage ties. Please just write the age you'd like in the message box.
Or I can print onto a tie you send me. The price is the same as for a new garment as it covers the cost of special tracked return postage.
So if you have a much loved but bedraggled fave, why not let our Clothing Hospital rejouvinate it and make it splendid again. Please just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
