Well good morning. It’s a bit of a grey morning, but pleased to report the sun (almost) shone down at Lord’s this weekend (well it didn’t rain) and there were some fabulous styles on show for Derek to spot.
Lord’s is a place where men of a certain age can really go for it. In so many other settings a grey suit is the only go to for them and it’s left for the women work the colour, but at the cricket, it’s ‘bright and bold’ all the way for the chaps, and ‘wear something neutral and get on with serving the cake’ for the women (hmph!).
So here are some colour moments from the third day:
Firstly, the trousers.
The red trouser has now become pretty ubiquitous – to the point where they’re now very much a regular trouser choice. Still a good option though, and a nice pair here:
Though it seems les pantalons rouge are now paving the way for even brighter coloured trousers, as demonstrated by these excellent yellow numbers:
And these rosy pink beauties as sported by a fellow member called Harry:
Note Derek was obsessed with these trousers – to the point where he stalked their owner around the grounds to get this pic. (Harry, if you’re reading, apols for disturbing your lunch. Though whilst we’re on the subject of these particular coloured trousers, Harry told us that he is getting married later this summer and the rather fabulous dress code for men is morning suit with coloured trousers – excellent idea).
For the man more cautious about his trouser colour, there was the chance to peacock via the sock. Several natty pairs were on display, which led to a sock off at lunch:
And finally, there were those for whom only the members’ colours in a big bold style would cut the mustard – sunglasses at the ready!
Double the colours:
Colours a deux!
So there you have it – hope your morning is now a bit brighter!
