this morning it was pretty cold, nothing dramatic but it made me think how over-looked the balaclava is these days. it is just another case of a handful of bad apples giving responsible balaclava wearers a bad name.
the thing to remember is that it is a piece of clothing and nothing to do with violence or terrifying intimidation. just look at this chap, there's nothing to fear from him.
that said, if you plan to go carol singing with your friends while all wearing one, can i suggest that you start singing almost immediately as they open the door to help avoid any unnecessary confusion.
