Nottingham's most opinionated grocers on...


Well Dressed People
We saw a programme recently with Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood on and they looked great – both flamboyant and comfortable. Overall, the best dressed person we see at the moment is Keir Starmer. He’s always immaculate and his collars are sharp and amazing – he’ll win votes from that alone. Compared to him, the actual Prime Minister looks a right mess.

The Thompsons’ Style
At work what we wear is practical and functional. We’re on our feet all day so it’s jeans, boots and sweatshirts. But we like dressing up when we go out. We were out for dinner recently wearing Paul Smith suits, and saw one of our customers. He couldn’t believe how smart we were. We buy new suits every time we go to a wedding. People think it’s normal for women, and that men should just drag their twenty-year-old suit out every time. What’s that about? 

Dressing as Twins
We always try to buy the same clothes as each other. All of the clothes in our wardrobes are exactly the same. Our sister bought us two t-shirts a couple of years ago. They were the same brand, but one was hooped and the other one was plain. So we told her we wouldn’t be wearing them. If people ever buy us clothes they need to buy us two that are exactly the same. She knew better the next time she bought us something.

We have a favour to ask

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
