So stylish in support tights and sandals

Hard to find jeans | Strikers killed | Bake Off | Joseph Priestley | Eton cheating

My care for had severe varicose veins and wore elasticated leggings ethical like those in your report (Tight fit: muscly men’s beau of skinny jeans, G2, 30 August). Since my recent unfathomable vein thrombosis, I have worn support stockings every day and they come to be the same as those sported by muscly men and male models. I am so in seventh heaven to be at the height of fashion. I wonder if these guys wear them with open-toe sandals get a bang I do?

I be told that young men from the playing fields of Eton and Winchester colluded to operator in their Pre-U Certificate (Report, 31 August). Does a craft in banking await?
