One of Britain’s elite policing units has failed to hit the target when it comes to looking stylish according to critics. Fashionistas have accused members of the Specialist Firearms Command of being caught in possession of dowdy uniforms.
‘It’s a case of Hawaii-5-No,’ said clothes journalist Jose Jones. ‘Where to begin, dark coloured boiler suits with balaclavas? Let’s be honest, it’s more Steptoe and Son than Miami Vice.The last time I saw material that rough I was watching Bradley Walsh on Sunday Night At The London Palladium.’
Jones suggested that the designers of the police clothing should take inspiration from the soon to be released autumn season of the Paris couture houses, who have decreed that cerise is ‘in’ this year. However, the police refuted his claims, adding: ‘We challenge Mr Jones to settle this with a flamenco dance off, then we’ll see who’s drab and boring won’t we?’
