A Shirt for EJ

26/09/2011 2 comments

Due to the Ladytron concert on Sunday, I did not get to update my blog like I had planned. I’m quite ashamed that the blog has fallen into a pit of neglect. ~_~ For now, I have a bit of entertainment for the loyal readers.

I have found a new shirt for our dear EJ. I believe it has details that he would enjoy: bold color, whimsical print.

What in the world did I find? Why the Muppets x Opening Ceremony collaboration. While I realize this shirt is categorized under “women,” it is menswear styled. Wouldn’t EJ just be so adorable with little Kermit the Frog faces all over his torso?

And the perfect EJ trouser pairing for this Kermit shirt would be:

Isn’t that a very EJ look? I wouldn’t lie to my dear readers. 😉

If you fancy the Kermit shirt, it retails for $180USD at Opening Ceremony.

P.S. I hope to have some ‘real’ posts out soon….

Starting the new season off right ~

Did everyone like watching F1 in HD? I sure did (ok… I had to settle for 320p resolution for quali since that was available more quickly at the time). Every bead of sweat, every pore… and every dress shirt in almost alarming detail. Yay! 😀

HD means better screen caps for this blog… although I had help from @MisterPigz with this because he had higher quality video sources than I did for both quali and race.

Melbourne quali:

During quali, EJ showed the world that he could not be possibly one upped by me. Indeed, I was quite right : plaid/paisley is a winning combi for EJ. All right, EJ is technically wearing gingham/paisley, but it’s close enough. I made the call two months ago anyway.

As for DC, he really likes this blue shirt with breast pockets, because he wore that shirt at least three times in 2010. Yes, I did the stats on it, though I haven’t posted them (BAD BAD ME!!!).

While none of our dear BBC crew has matched their shirts yet, it seems that Jake seems vaguely inspired by DC. Notice his shirt also has two breast pockets. 😉 Maybe he wanted one too after seeing DC wear it a few times last year?

Melbourne race day:

On race day at Melbourne, DC just had to wear a pink shirt. Is there any significance in this choice? 2010 was a long time ago, but DC wore the very same pink shirt at the beginning of the season too.

Bahrain 2010 quali:

Wow. Talk about starting the season off in the same way. 😉

Jake’s shirt is more forgettable… a dark tone (eggplant maybe? I’ll have to rewatch the race specifically for this detail)… But please note the double pockets again. Maybe DC really is his muse now? I guess that’s fine as long as Jake doesn’t start dressing like EJ. I have to admit that I was kind of excited to see EJ’s race day shirt in HD. At first glace, I thought EJ was wearing a shirt with oversized polka dots. But it soon became clear (thanks to the HD feed) that EJ’s shirt was merely giving my eyes optical illusions. I’m not quite sure how to describe the pattern… but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Are you all excited for Malaysia? Renault’s “reflective gold” suits… the questionable Malaysian grid girl uniform (I hope they axe those fugly white sandals this year)… EJ’s next shirt choice.

I can’t wait! 🙂

P.S. The screen caps @Misterpigz helped with are actually quite good… but somehow wordpress is enlarging all of my photos and making them grainier than the original 😦

Inside EJ’s Closet

Have you ever wondered what EJ’s closet would be like? After seeing the polka dotted shirt he wore in Brazil, I had a BRILLIANT revelation.

EJ’s closet must look something like this:

Yes, this is a photo of racing silks (from Churchill Downs in case anyone was wondering).

EJ’s shirt from Brazil reminded me of racing silks due to the oversized polka dots. The more I thought about it, the more sense it made. The electric colors EJ tends to favor would blend right in at the track!

As a bonus, if he ever tires of his job at the BBC, he could be a jockey! (All right, maybe not, he’s too old and heavy).

Jessica Looks Pantless

Curse you Lady Gaga for starting this pantless trend. All right… I’m sure Jessica was wearing super short shorts… but don’t you think she looks pantless here? I’m sure the guys are loving this photo but frankly this type of attire is best left at home. Jessica looks like she stole a silk shirt from John Button’s wardrobe and belted it. YUCK. Imagine that. John Button’s sweaty shirt. =X

PS I hate those shoes too.

PPS John Button is trying to compete with Nico in terms of sexy unbuttoned shirt. Um, I don’t think so.

It’s Been Awhile John Button…

John Button hasn’t been appearing much on the broadcast (and photos)… maybe because Jenson hasn’t been winning lately*? Whatever the reason is, John Button was photographed in Hockenheim wearing a blue striped collar shirt and a casual cotton blazer. As much as I like stripes, I can’t ignore the fact that John Button still had too many buttons undone. I promised to call it out every time I notice it, so here it is.

I can’t possibly be the only one in the world who is bothered by this… no one really thinks he looks “sexy” right?

* Don’t worry dear John… the luck of the Button is strong. I’m sure things will turn around.

Rosberg… Bringing Sexy Back?

Rosberg was seen running in his ugly loafers again on Thursday. Remember I first mentioned these loafers in Malaysia. Rosberg always looks like he is trying so hard to be sexay. In addition to his typical three shirt buttons undone this time his Calvin Klein underwear was showing too.

Sorry Rosberg… you are a pretty boy of F1, but I don’t think you’re bringing sexy back. Sometimes you just end up looking a bit foolish.

Christian Horner is Pretty in Pink

Sort of. Pretty isn’t really the right word. =p While it might be in Horner’s job description to be seen at all times wearing the Red Bull team gear… it’s nice to see that he owns some real clothes. Haha. I wonder if he misses wearing his own clothes, I know I would! Anyway, I like seeing a guy in a pink shirt*… and pink windowpane at that! I wonder what pants Horner was wearing.. Hopefully not a pair of white ones, or he would be a bit too EJ looking.

* EXCEPT John Button. Anyone who has read earlier entries this will know that (I hope).
