I Ride: A bicycle.
Sartorial elegance

So here we have it 70 years of(in its various forms) MotoGP etc.
Sadly the riders look like they kit themselves out of a charity shop, nothing fits, they are paid more than most, yet manage to exude the type of style I would call pauper comes to (insert here your own countries elegant building for banquets) dinner.
What do you think?

This is important how? I got rid of show-off when I was studying philosophy in my twenties. Have lived happiest life ever since, imagine, no desire to impress anybody. It makes life so much more enjoyable.

That sort of fit is common among sportsmen. I'm not at all surprised.

Probably because their body shapes all range from small boy to lanky teenager?

Surely you can't be talking about Ianonne? Didn't he have his sweat glands replaced with Georgio Armani Eau de toilette?
