What clothing would you ban?

19th April 2016

Clothing that should be BannedNeil hates snoods, Tina's jumper looks like a snood

After Kim Jon-Un declared that jeans and piercings would be banned in North Korea, Neil and Tina decided to reveal their pet hates on the clothing front.

Neil is very against ankle boots - with wedge heels and snoods - even the word 'snood' is offensive to him.

Tina as  E T 30 bike basketNeil reckons Tina looks like ET hidden under the towel in the bicycle basket! Needless to say the atmosphere in the Breakfast team is a bit frosty this morning!

Tina's pet hate is chaps wearing the jeans halfway down their backside, showing off their pants, needing a belt, and a lot of people agreed!

However, here's some of the other suggestions from Elaine, Dawn, Paul, Claire and Lisl, plus Tina reveals an embarrassing family secret! Have a listen:

Texters also suggested adding to the list:

  • Bermuda shorts and wellies?  Kev in Lanner.
  • Crocs! Just no ! Jan Launceston
  • Coloured bras under white tops. It's underwear for a reason. Kath
  • I would ban men's body warmers or gilletts. Men who wear shorts and t shirts and flip flop and one of those. What's the point? It's either warm enough to wear summer clothes or not. Andy

Tina reckons Andy's described Neil's summer wardrobe!! (Told you things were frosty!)

More madness back on Breakfast from 5am, weekday mornings!
