The brightly coloured underscanties with the white piping were cute, the rest of it schmutter of the quality you could find on any market stall.
But he still defined a good few years of fashion life: brightly coloured skinny jeans, deep-V T-shirts, tube socks with double stripes, those gym bags with the two bands of webbing… Admit it, you had the lot. The people of Shoreditch would have been walking around naked without him.
Well now it seems Don Charvey (that’s him! Sexy, in a Jewish Canadian sort of way), the man who stocked Butt magazine next to the till and created the Legalize Gay T-shirt (even though he’s not gay – well, not if the sexual harassment cases against female workers are anything to go by) may be in big trouble. And not this time for getting his cock out at work.
It seems his company is massively in debt and getting further in there every year that goes by. Is it because recent collections have been hard to even understand, let alone wear (though we just spotted an all-in-one that we have our eye on)? Is it because overnight every high street seemed to have one – and a big one? Whatever it is, the fact is that his financiers are concerned that he’s losing $30 million a year, his sales are down 16% and the share price has dropped by half in just one week.
So, quicksticks! If you want enough of those panties to last you the rest of your life (not that they haven’t been generously ripped off – *giggles* panties ripped off – by now), you better get down there!
