David James, Superman

Doing the daily internet rounds (daily? Who am I kidding here? At least hourly) I was very pleased to see Brandish reporting about the lovely David James promoting Debenham's Everyman promotion. Between now and 15 June (that's fathers' day folks! Don't forget like I inevitably will) Debenhams will donate 10p towards men's cancer charity Everyman for every item sold in men’s clothing, accessories and fragrance, having pledged to raise at least £100,000. Ok, so 10p does sound like much, but every amount counts.

All this was a bit psychically spooky, however, as just the day before I had been pondering David James and, in particular, his hair.

Even more specifically, I was thinking of the hair style above. Described by press at the time as being akin to Superman's, I just think it's great that a sportsman smartened himself up so much with a classic 30s 'do for a match. This photo may be fairly ancient, but top marks Mr James!

I'm glad you point out these prostate cancer sites, Steve. This is a serious disease that will affect many of us. Cynic that I sometimes am, I suspect the drug companies are perfectly happy with the current draconian treatments currently available because they make a lot of money selling drugs to poor guys who are left with the outrageous side effects of these treatments.

As a friend of all things older, especially hair cuts, I cannot endorse this particular 'do. He looks like the villain in a silent film, or possibly McFly.

Thom, you've just described two awesome things. Particularly silent move villian!

(And J, awareness of both testicular and prostate cancer is so important that I just can't pass up the opportunity to post about it... I try to keep SOME link to style though!)
