Shoes for Genuine Men only

      2 Comments on Shoes for Genuine Men only

I spotted the readers offer below in the copy of the Daily Express I was flicking through. The headline proclaims it is selling “Genuine Men’s Leather Shoes“.

Now I guess they mean the shoes are made from real leather but should that not read “Men’s Genuine Leather Shoes“? The way the Daily Express have put it it reads that they are offering leather shoes to “Genuine Men“.

If they really do mean that how do they expect you to prove it? Should you send a gender statement signed by a doctor who has examined you along with your order?

    Dear Knobby,

    Some time ago you mentioned that one the BBC’s six ‘Wessex Tales’, which were made in1973 and have recently been released on DVD, was largely filmed in Bettiscombe. I have just got hold of the set and wondered if you had managed to identify any of the locations of the other five films. Some of them look very familiar but I can’t quite name them. Can you help? My email is and I would love to hear your thoughts! With best wishes and many thanks, Tony
