I Have a Few Ideas

Monday 25th May 2020

The first is moths: Poor Little Rich Gays here and throughout the world, don’t, in this present Time of Wrong, take your eye off the ball. Your moth regime should be proceeding as usual for the time of year. Despite the run of warm weather, it isn’t quite┬átime for wools to be bagged up permanently until the autumn. Remember, in the days of fur, she would often have a Mink Stole for the carriage at Ascot, which is always the second week of June.

Nevertheless, particularly now when you might have put away good Winter and Spring pieces and not had them out again during this… you know what, when you’ve not been in outfits for weeks, careful management is more important than ever. All wools should be taken out, brushed and aired. Judge whether pieces need to be washed or dry cleaned. For Poor Little Rich Gays with large wardrobes this is a quandary. If you only have two or three winter coats (i.e. worn quite a lot), it would be best to have them dry cleaned before bagging up for the summer. Otherwise rely on careful brushing before bagging. Check that your moth sachets are up to date.

I have only had moth three times. Once when I put away my Paul and Joe coat without cleaning first. This was in the days when I had only one winter coat so it had been worn a lot.

A note on bagging: pieces should be individually bagged and labelled. Use aerated cloth bags, not plastic.

All winter/autumn pieces should be bagged by the end of June.

My other idea concerns the Queen. I had a sudden superb brain wave. If she can’t meet people, because of …, why not allow worthy members of the public to take her place at certain functions? She could be present on Zoom and the member of the public, perhaps a really excellent cleaner or a hero of the front line, could unveil the plaque or declare open or whatever… It could be a kind of alternative Honours System. You can be Queen for the afternoon. Men could participate. They might wear some of the hats or brooches. Investitures could also be conducted like this. The worthy member of the public actually gives out the medals, then the recipients are spoken to by the Queen on Zoom.

I’m going to write to the Palace.
