Maidenhead today and a quote

My wife and I are going to Maidenhead today. We will do a bit of Sunday shopping (read: clothes shopping). It's just a good excuse as any to quote Anthony Burgess again:

"Women thrive on novelty and are easy meat for the commerce of fashion. Men prefer old pipes and torn jackets."

She is going to become a godmother next weekend and wants a new dress. I will wear the same old suit I have been wearing since 2004.
