Richard Armitage’s beard in Stella McCartney
Well, not quite. A few months ago I saw the proposal for the Team GB Olympic uniforms, designed by Ms. McCartney, and saw the bicycler’s uniform. Now that is a costume Mr. Armitage would look great it — biker gear really emphasizes the developed thighs and rear of the person wearing it, and there’s no penalty in the cut for an oddly placed waist or broad shoulders. Mmmmm. Fits just right, every time.
So, in honor of the Olympics starting today, I decided to put full-bearded Armitage on the Team GB cycling team.
Well, not quite. Those are Chris Hoy‘s frighteningly large thighs.
Also, professional bikers are very superstitious about cutting wind resistance and I imagine if Mr. Armitage were on Team GB, they’d make him shave his beard and his legs and maybe even his forearms.
Good luck to all the Olympic athletes and teams. To our London friends, we hope you’re surviving the crush!
