The typical Australian grandfather’s Christmas Day outfit has nothing on a local African bloke’s flash new button up, it has been confirmed.
The South-Betoota man by the name of Lou has received praise from the local community today for bringing back the loud button up. A style once made popular by drovers visiting town for the rodeo.
The father-of-three says this particular lime green number is one of his favourites, and he’s surprised that locals think he needs a reason to wear a such a lively shirt.
This isn’t the first time the cheerful Kenyan-born kitchenhand has drawn attention for his vibrant fashion sense, just last month he was seen rocking an off-pink business shirt with a Cadbury-purple double windsor necktie during a family get together at the Lord Kidman hotel.
Retired local farmer, Ken Pearson (80) says that he loves seeing a bloke bold enough “to rock a shirt that could blind ya”.
“We need more of it.” he says.
“Back in my day, you’d measure a man by how loud his shirt was… All my grandkids are getting around town in basketball jerseys… Lou’s the only one that knows what a real lid looks like”
All three of Lou’s children were also seen wearing Australian sporting merchandise, while his wife was rocking the high-waisted stretch jeans and mid-drift, with bright blue lipstick.
