Roll Up Shirt Sleeves, Get to It

Interested as I am in all the current political upheaval I couldn't help but notice the frequent references to rolling up shirt sleeves and getting on with the job voiced by several senior politicians.

I have a feeling that with the predicted austere times ahead this shirt sleeve rolling may just become a bit of a fashion statement. Not since the early 1960s have we seen this particular style, a time when our cricketers went out to bat with a healthy display of forearms.

The Army has always been a strong advocate of short sleeve order; Khaki shirts folded and ironed with military precision and knife edge creases.

There is something distinctly masculine and workmanlike about it, so whether you are toiling on the soil or poring over your computer, now is the time to get down to business and roll up your shirt sleeves before this fashion whim passes you by.
