Quite out of the blue, Grey Fox Blog had the honour of featuring in The Times Magazine on Saturday 28 July. In five pages of outstanding writing, Polly Vernon, Ben Machell and Prue White explore and interpret the Grey Fox style with humour (see below) and great insight. Their writing is illustrated partly by the superb photographs of Niall McDiarmid, whose outstanding work I covered on this blog here.
For this to come less than seven months after I first put pen to paper is flattering and very gratifying. I would like to think that more grey foxes will join in the fun. The article is available online (with subscription) here.
P.S. On Tuesday 31 July The Mail Online has taken up the story! See Fifty shades of silver fox: Blog celebrating stylish middle-aged men takes internet by storm here. The word 'storm' may be overcooking it, but very generous.
Some of the writing had me in stitches. Polly Vernon suggested that I may have "unwittingly created online erotica for legions of Grey (or Silver) Fox aficianados. Women who fancy Grey Foxes are everywhere, a quiet army of lechers who are allowed to indulge their proclivities in relative peace because prevailing fascination with cougars...is taking the heat off them". Well, I'm going to have to think about that one and will return to the topic when I've chewed it over a bit! Meanwhile, please comment if you'd like to!
In his Are you a Grey Fox or just grey? Ben Machell helps you establish whether you are a grey fox or not. I keep returning to this for a hearty chuckle.
Finally, Prue White interprets the Grey Fox style with a brilliant selection of clothes and accessories which I, as a Grey Fox representative, heartily approved of.
Thank you The Times.
