Believe it or not,I saw those very same 5 gaiters and was tempted,but Mrs RT has put a combolock on me wallet.
I think I shall invest,as I only have one pair of troos at the moment,I think I need another pair at least. Don't you?
I do have a few pairs of shorts though,but I don't want to scare anyone with these legs.
Next one.

Good heavens man. A man should wear the trousers in his own house. Ooops .... that's the problem isn't it. You haven't any!

PS, as regards shorts .... the sheep are accustomed to strange sights. There is naturist holiday accommodation that takes guests on nude walks based at ****** House Farm. (No, I don't know how they manage to sit down for their dinner in the heather)
