After many unsuccessful contortionist attempts and not getting a single decent shot of the back of the jumper whilst trying to take my own picture in the mirror, I remembered I had Dolly (my dummy) which I could have used. Doh.

Pied a Terre Old Boots
Lets try again but with different boots .......
Slightly less farmhand? Belstaff Boots (with heel - gasp)
I loved it when I first tried it on and it kind of goes okay with what I have on but I'm trying to work out if it's just the tie detail at the back which sets this jumper off or anything else? I quite like the colour too admittedly but my sensible head says the opening at the back could get a little chilly and I know this is a door handle hooker of a jumper.
So I have a little time yet to decide. If you have any thoughts pass them on and then I'll know if I've cracked this utilitarian look too. In which case I can put another tick in the fashion box and give myself a pat on the back. Or if not, a visit to the Army Surplus store may be imminent to see what they have in the way of this year's flak jackets .....
