Past-president Max Hutchinson has appealed to Ferguson to drop his red trousers.
Ferguson is never seen in public without his signature red strides.But Hutchinson told the AJ this week that the gimmicky attire was 'a problem' which could hinder him in his work as president, and called on Ferguson to ditch them. 'I'm hoping that a man of his distinction will recognise the gravitas of his position and act accordingly, 'Hutchinson said.
However, ex-Red or Dead designer Wayne Hemingway applauded the look.'He just needs a Cornish fisherman's hat and a roll-neck Jack Hawkins jumper like the one he wore in The Cruel Sea.Popeye is a good fashion icon.'
