Is there anywhere you get a rakish fat guy jacket?

I fear that if anyone did a venn diagram of beergut and louche, it might prove a crushing disappointment.

No way - "louche" literally means squint-eyed or blind in one eye, and (more generally) slightly immoral. Loads of fat guys look like that.

To be honest, clothes shopping is one arena in which I have no sympathy for the whining of the larger gent; 99% of clothes in the shops are aimed at them and would make me look like Rodney Trotter heading for a job interview. The only people who've ever sold clothes aimed at thin people, since around Live Aid, have been designers who charge thousands of pounds. Until the advent of sweatshop-fuelled high street menswear shops finally getting wise and ripping of the designers (well, H&M - no one else has really bothered).

Suits are really flattering things for anyone to wear, so of course you can get rakish fat guy jackets, and nice suits in thousands of styles. Unlike the thin, who have to travel the land until we look drawn and pale, searching for anyone who'll cut us some slack(s).

Ah, but louche has come to mean "of questionable morality and given to decadance". And as we all know, decadant and morally questionable behavior is far more satisfying in a well-tailored outfit.

So louche he wears an eye-patch.

Ah, the whining of the larger gent. Can there be any sweeter sound.

It haunts me in my dreams. It's like shrimps being cooked alive.

Every weekday morning when I worked in Chelsea, I saw Nick Cave in the same cafe knocking back a cappucino and sucking the life out of a Silk Cut. He looked at best like a unemployed Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, and, at worst, fecal matter hoisted to the very heavens on a long sliver of wood.

All right then, by far my daughter's favourite among my hilarious (for a two-year-old) repertoire of funny faces is my "Fin" Finlayson.

Surely I can be in your louche club now. Or were you thinking more along the lines of Ben Turpin?

Ah right, dandy highwaymen and that. I'll admit defeat and buy a kaftan then.

Whenever I see the name H&M I unconsiously wonder if sells 'haute' bondage gear. Not that I've ever wanted to buy bondage gear haute or otherwise.

Best suit I've ever owned cost me £1 from the nearly new shop up Spon Street in Cov.

Linen suit, panama hat, bead of sweat on your forefront. Unfiltered camel in hand, a glass of bourbon in the other, contemplating pensively a typewriter with in the background a rumbling storm coming.

Added bonus would a sultry latin type lady on a bed waiting for me but hey, the first bit will do...
