1) I had dimly thought that the male fashion for wearing jeans so low that they exposed a significant acreage of underpant had died in 1995 when it was cruelly satirised in Clueless. But this summer in London it's back and I find myself constantly having to avert my eyes from more Gap, Calvin Klein or M & S than seems strictly necessary. The less experienced wearers of this style, I note, have acquired a splay-legged lope to prevent even further exposure.
2) The BMW X5 was a wondrously pointless and ugly machine. Well, not content with climbing that mountain, BMW has now launched the X6. It is even uglier. In fact, contemplating one on the street yesterday I realised that BMW has discovered that Holy Grail of car designers, the Flying Turd.
