Tails of Woe

Thanks to Stuart Graves

Gothiness: 7 Sweatiness: 8
Where to begin with young Stuart here: Robert Smith meets Ducky from Pretty in Pink - we've all been there, Stuart - it's just that most of us realised our error before getting photographed. Well done for braving a fine Summer evening in those winkle-pickers though, I'm sure no-one at the end of term ball would fuck with you in those bad boys, for fear of your sweaty socks alone!

I see a little Brian Setzer Ebb in there, too.

Just remember Stuart, boys don't cry.

That's exactly the type of boy I would have fallen in angsty unrequited crush with, back in the day.

I am also assuming young Stuart couldn't afford a Gothbelt, as he appears to be holding his trousers up to spare us the sight of his Goth scanties. Very considerate.
