Cured at last? Our competition winner meets the Vintage Style Doctor
A while ago we ran a competition with vintage chain Rokit and the Vintage Style Doctor offering long-suffering women the chance to enter their beloved boyfriends, brothers, husbands or friends for a chance to be cured of their style illnesses. The winner – as picked by you – was Philip Woollett, who, stuck in baggy surfer shorts and T-shirts more befitting for a teenager, was diagnosed as suffering from man-boy syndrome. He admitted himself, “Baggy and messy clothes have been my preference for too long.”
Enter Vintage Style Doctor Colin Reed. After meeting Philip and his girlfriend Zoe (who had entered him in the competition) for an initial consultation over fish and chips at Poppies, the Doc whisked them away to Rokit where some bubbly and a £100 shopping voucher – all part of the prize – were already waiting.
The Doc went to work straight away, picking out possible pieces and advising on cut and fit. An hour later Philip left with several new outfits, and not a baggy short in sight!
So what did the patient think? “The shopping trip was good fun and taught me alot about a new style of fashion, ” Philip said, “and yeah, a styling session with the doctor would be a great help to many friends!”
