    Damn Simon where did you come up with that view living in the tropics?

    Lol, my father was born and raised in a hot country (Egypt). But he was 'British' from an older generation (1920's), and would never consider wearing shorts in public, unless on the beach or indeed, while serving in the military in Africa. I've lived in the tropics for more than 20 years and have never felt the need to wear shorts away from the beach. My legs are cool enough in jeans or jogging pants. Male knees are not something to scare the fairer sex with....

    the knees and muscular tanned legs owned by the Aussie contingent don't scare the fairer sex , on the contrary the effect is quite the opposite

    the pasty chicken legs and knobbly knees of the poms is quite a good reason to confine them to leg burkas

    Tropical climes dictate a latitude in sartorial standards, but the rule of thumb is that in cities one should not wear shorts unless of course dressed by one's mother or is an American, or an Antipodean, or an oik. Resort towns, tropical islands and Wales...well, it's mostly up to you. Here in Pattaya I never wear long trousers unless dining out at night somewhere nice.

    Censuring those who wear shorts in tropical tourist destinations is really little more than affectation. Simon is taking the piss.

    Wearing denim jeans in this climate???!!!

    I enjoy wearing chinos, no problem. Like Prince Andrew (lol), I don't sweat much, certainly much less that some of the fat slobs in shorts.

    One has to keep standards up, regardless of where you are. Maybe why I usually wear a button shirt with collar, perfect for the beach, and only removed for a swim.

    Perhaps I'll get mistaken for Jacob Rees-Mogg ....

    Rees-Moog is an oddity who affects the air of a gentleman classicist disdaining the modern world in favour of an imaginary time when toffs were admired for being toffs and respected because they were rich. He thinks as long as one has good manners and can conjugate in Latin then they are excused any number of transgressions irrespective of their immorality.

    He inherited 60 million from his father's estate and married into a legacy of 200 million. Despite benefiting from the best of all educations, Eton, Oxford etc, he is in fact a near idiot whose wealth, Victorian pretensions and addiction to sesquipedalian speech ( he is referred to in parliament as the honourable member for the 19th Century ) have made him a shoo-in for the rightwing Tory party and as such was elected to represent a constituency in NE Somerset, an electorate not unacquainted with congenital imbecility.

    Mogg has never actually worked successfully in a real job. After graduating from Oxford his father's cronies found him a position in an investment bank in the City but after a few months his employers realised he should never be let near a trade on the floor and as with all such rejects he was shipped off to Hong Kong as an adornment that they hoped would impress the Chinks into believing his affectations were synonymous with skill, class and reliability. His cadre of expats in th former colony were known as FILTH i.e. failed in London tried Hong Kong.

    In the end he realised his true destiny was to represent the agricultural bourgeoisie and underclasses of Somerset in the Commons were he could endlessly pontificate in contrived interventions and crack jokes in Latin to his heart's content. it is notable that no PM, not even BoJo, has ever let the twit near a government department and his clodhopping utterances as he tried to relate to ordinary folk were so grievously bad that he was forbidden to speak publicly in the last General Election. I think Cummings let it be known he would cut Mogg's left testicle out if he opened his trap again.

    Like most hypocrites of his ilk his riches are held in trust and he derives an income from investments in his fund Somerset Capital which exploits the third world population euphemistically referred to as emerging markets. He is an avowed Catholic against abortion and insists on services in Latin. One of his investments was the sale of a product used by catholics in the Philippines as an illicit abortion treatment and when his hypocrisy was wiped over his gormless mug he replied indifferently " the product's sale in that country was not illegal".

    In short, Mogg is the quintessential Tory arshole who enjoys unlimited inherited wealth and is utterly divorced from any reality that might impinge on his delusions that he is a benign Victorian patrician and which might detract from the truth of his persona that he is fact nowt but an elongated streak of putrid, paralysed piss.

    Needless to say, he is a fanatical Brexiteer as indeed are all such fuckups.

    Jacob Rees-Mogg always looks well considering he's about 250 years old.

    Dang Simon....

    The last time I wore trousers of any kind was my last day of classroom teaching in Thailand, 2 years ago. I only wear tennis shoes when exercising, any other time it's sandals. However, I grew up in Florida, where that was the norm.

    You mean that you exercise stark naked except for tennis shoes?

    I jog on the beach every morning, wearing swim shorts (if I plan to swim later), or jogging pants, and a t-shirt (and sports shoes). At any other time, it's a collared shirt and jeans. Yes, when I go to the shopping centre, every other expat is wearing shorts and seems to sport a bald head and bulging beer gut. Up to them as they say.

    This whole thread is an anathema to Sausages, its causing the poor chap to reflect further upon the situation he's pigeonholed himself into.

    100% Jacob Rees-Mogg was bullied and buggered at Eton. Guy is a massive weapon as is Jeremy Corbyn, Bojo, that ginger lasse and most certainly pig fucker. Oh also Bercow, massive bellend that one..complete cuk and his poor man's princess Diana gypsy fucking tick.

    The pigfucker is so inbred, he makes Princess Eugene and Beatrice look within the bounds of reason and dare I say even seductive to throbbing members of all walks.

    Oh and Ed Milliband, if I was David I would rather be an orphan than claim that fucktard as my brother. I would literally disown my parents for letting me down so severely and have a full fucking blood transfusion to rid myself of any matching blood that courses through his retarded veins.

    Too many posters veering off topic on this thread.

    Its about Simon and his adventure in a new country, steering clear of such precipitous nonsense, while retaining his own choice of style, standards and class.
    As individuals we are all different, but this thread should not be an excuse to regurgitate personal hatred. Live and let live, or scroll on by. Leave your personal hobby horse out of it.

    ^right. It's about Simon and his life (and fashion) choices.

    @simon - you should try wearing shorts + socks&sandals.

    You could probably request to change the thread title: from Laos to Turkey to Mauritius.

    Fuck off back to Thaivisa, you silly boring old fart. The segue was a natural development of an interesting thread not dictated by the dribbling of your tedious, tortured prose.
