    The Waistcoats of Rog42

    • 0 Comments
    They've initiated laughter, conversation, and not a few questions. They're not a new trend (some would argue not a trend at all), on the contrary most of them are a good decade old. They're colourful, silly, and epitomise my philosophy to life: "Life...
