Some while ago in our previous life, we had a project to build a large shed at the bottom of our very tiny garden, to house Mr H’s tools, Mr H’s motorbike, Mr H’s racing bike and assorted items of Mr H’s abandoned gym equipment. The day before we pooled our joint resources to purchase materials and commence construction we foolishly went out shopping and came home with a rather expensive but fabulous leather jacket for Mr H ( and a rather nice pair of boots for me, but that’s completely beside the point). One half of the shed money gone, the project remained on hold for several months, much to the amusement of our brother-in-law who had promised to help me build it (Mr H’s idea of DIY in those days being rather more YDI – You Do It.) and who referred to the jacket as ‘the Shed’ from then onwards. Some years down the line I have no idea if the building is still standing but the jacket is still fabulous and going strong. Here are some manly pictures starring ‘The Shed’, assorted manly accoutrements and a favourite pair of vintage Raybans, oh and a vintage Zippo for good measure………….
