Codger is one of a range of t shirts designed to celebrate the rude and disempowering words used to describe older people.
Women get it in the neck especially, with a cornucopia of insults ranging from Hag and Crone to Witch and Bint.
Although men fair rather better with 'Silver Fox' there's still some fun to be had and so here is my dashing friend Nick modelling Codger.
An old Codger typically is unfashionable, unhealthy, stuck in their ways and grips about the young. I won't go into all the reasons why Nick is the polar opposite of this description but suffice to say he embroiders his own clothes, cycles or sails daily, writes and illustrates exquisite books like his latest 'Racing Bicycles' (due out in June) and pours his passions for art, sport, literature, travel, history and nature into his lovely son's ears and heart.
A savvy, kind-hearted, big-brained belter of a dad and a really damn nice bloke to know.
