Clement's standards slip

Someone sent me a pic of the panel at the recent Edinburgh recording and .... Sir Clement Freud was in an openneck shirt! Somehow I thought Clement woulde never be without suit and tie.

Mind you - he still looked well dressed. For a man who is clearly no oil painting, he always seems to look very stylish.

Paul also always looks sharp in his clothes...

A picture? How can I see it? I am a fan of Sir Clement Freud.

What's an open-necked shirt? Afterall, he claimed to have the body of an 18-year-old boy, albeit in his fridge. :)

Any chance of sharing the picture? I love seeing JAM sessions. And I certainly agree about Paul. Even after years of Have I Got News For You's bright orange/stripy shirts I still consider him the best dressed man in Britain =P

An open-neck shirt just means (in this case anyway) a buttoned shirt where the neck part is open rather than buttoned up to the neck as you would when wearing a tie.

As for Sir Clement's body - when I saw him he was shaped like a bowling ball! He really is very fat I'm afraid... Short and fat. But still dignified. :)

The pic - I'll see what I can do but it will have to wait till I'm home. Which is a couple of weeks away.

Paul has always been a snappy dresser, but he's worn some memorably bad outfits on HIGNFY - that mint green "gay cricket club" sweater springs instantly to mind...

Paul also has a tendency to wear T-shirts advertising his programmes - "Turn Over At 11" was a reference to switch to his series on Channel 4. More recently he wore one advertising his series on BBC Four - "Paul Merton's Silent Clowns".
