Day 28/365

How well do you know your hanky codes? The placement of this hanky means, 'I do good.' The pattern on the hanky itself means, 'Beware, crazed Ken Done Fan - Stand Back!' (You can tell this because of the pink and purple camouflage.)

And don't let first impressions fool you. It may look like I'm 'just' wearing jeans, but as someone who has not owned a pair of jeans for over 15 years, this is *radical* for me. My opinions all changed some months back when I spotted a pair of leopard print Versace jeans in an op-shop (see Day 12/365). It suddenly dawned on me I was needlessly closing myself down to all the options a 'jean' could provide. I haven't gone too nuts yet - and this is the only pair that are 'conventional denim blue' - but they are also second-hand and organic cotton, so I feel pretty damn good about them actually.

Little different from my 1970's understanding of the hanky codes....still 'doing good' for our community! Light pink...crazed Ken Done Fan, an accessory, or combo of both....

I think wearing a jean is all about the accompanying shoe, so you should have no issues taking the jean to new heights

What Ken Be Done? said...

RT80s OVAAT perhaps my humour is a little too subtle - I'll admit that - but yes, I am familiar with 'code' itself! And yes, my suggestion is I'm good at both :-)

Kate - great insight on the jean and shoe combination... I'm going to work on this for the next time the denim comes out for show - thanks! Now if only Ken Done made shoes... surely someone out there can find me a pair of sneakers he once decorated for charity or something? ...

And Anon, doing *good* in our communities helps keep up supple, strong of mind and body. Thanks for noticing my 'flexible' modelling skills...All that watching America's Next Top Model FINALLY paid off! :-)
