Personally I'd rather not have white as it looks so grubby after five minutes of wear and after a week - euch even with washing at night

At Kentwell or anywhere else I would be much more worried in an authentic sense you understand rather than anything else about Paul's legs than Annis's since so much more of them are on display. Annis despite being a hard worker is always fairly modest and doesn't go about flashing a great deal of h...
