Sarong and thanks for all the fish

Very disappointed in that new on-line sarong shop. The first order I made was the wrong size. Sent it back, and this time it's the wrong colour.

Just goes to show, two sarongs don't make a right.


  1. Sarongs come in different sizes? That's a new one on me! Must be made in the UK, rather than SE Asia.

  2. But so comfortable after a long, hot day to strip off and wear something light and loose. Just a sarong at twilight...

    1. ...and yes, in my case, preferably when the lights are low!

  3. I've always thought that wraparound clothes are risky. What happens if the thingie tying it together fails at unfortunate moments?

    I remember seing Yul Bryner in the King and I and thinking that he must have loved taking a a risk with the sarong's he wore.

    I had a sort of Sarong, dressing gown once upon a time, being in the Army, communal living gives rise to some ribaldry, and my nickname of the Geisha gave me a hint that my comrades either approved (nod, nod, wink, wink) or disapproved and thought of my being a bit of a 'nancy'.

    I decided that making it a virtue was the thing to do to overcome prejudice, so wore it as often as possible. However, the Regimental Sergeant Major said quite forcefully, that it wasn't appropriate for a 'Ladies Night' because, "how would we know who the ladies are, if one of the laddies runs around in a frock"! This was off course, before the days of Political Correctness struck the Armed Forces, and wearing a Sarong is now an everyday occurrence.
