In which G.M. Norton brings two loves together.
When I was a young boy, my uncle gave me his copy of a Tintin hardback book, The Calculus Affair.
From that moment on, I fell in love with the characters, stories, humour and artwork. I found myself consuming absolutely anything I could find that was Tintin related, which included getting up very early to record radio shows onto tape (well, I was an '80s child).
Recently, I acquired some Tintin pin badges from Messrs E&Bay so have been wearing them frequently ever since.
While wearing one of the pin badges on my jacket lapel, I happened to also wear another love of mine - the fair isle sleeveless pullover. The reaction on Instagram was enormously positive, so it occurred to me to combine both loves for a week of sartorial fun. Well, from Monday to Friday as I don't have quite enough badges or fair isle slipovers to do the full seven days (which gives me the perfect excuse to get more!).
So this week was Fair Isle and Tintin week and here's the results.
Do you have a favourite look or indeed, book?
