Young Fogey: A.N. Wilson

A. N. Wilson, the novelist and critic, says he wears the same clothes (usually a three-piece suit and bow tie, plus a shirt with a deep and curled-up collar) until they smell. Then he drops them in the corner of the room.

Poor guy. In a stronger man, the spirit would have broken the marriage.
