Are you a lad nouveau or a lad vieux?

According to Pete Beale (or is it Steve?) Posing fuckers like us aren’t making up for a poverty stricken childhood where we had to be rock hard and/or dead funny to avoid getting crucified for wearing snide Walker trackie bottoms instead of proper Tacchini ones (though personally I didn’t have either). No, we’re something known as lad nouveau, which to be honest sounds a bit gay to us, do this test now or we’ll smack you and pop the tyres on your Grifter you little dick. Shit I forgot to use the word ‘nascent’ in that paragraph.

Ahh how simple life must be for you, everything is black and white isn’t it? You don’t have to worry about what you wear in case somebody you’ve never met off the internet sees you in clothing that has been available online for over a week. You luck, lucky bastard.
