THE SECRET BARRISTER T-SHIRTS: AN UPDATE -SIGNED, IRONED AND DELIVERED: FIND OUT THE TRUE IDENTITY OF THE SECRET BARRISTER…
An update on the Secret Barrister T-shirt saga. As part of the prize for the Secret Barrister T-shirt auction the shirt (which became “shirts” due to my inadvertence – read the story here) were to be ironed by a silk. James Turner QC, vastly experienced in ironing, took personal responsibility.
There were complaints that James was not wearing a full-bottomed wig for this task (this being an important ceremonial occasion).
The task clearly required considerable concentration.
In particular the ironing couldn’t damage the signature.
HAND DELIVERY BY SILK
James then hand-delivered the T-shirt (carefully wrapped) to Daniel Barnett in his chambers. (Its twin has been posted to Paul Ceysenns a lawyer in Canada).
@CivilLitTweet My @BarristerSecret T-shirt has arrived – thank you so much! I will frame and hang it on my wall next week
@JamesTurner37 delivered it beautifully ironed and wrapped around proper shirt-shaped cardboard!
(So Daniel may be the only person who can claim “I framed the Secret Barrister”. )
COMMENTS FROM TWITTER
Needless to say the legal Twitterati provided commentary. The picture also gained James some female admirers (I’ve left out some of the more risqué ones).
Gordon this looks staged. How do we know that there isn’t a junior just out of shot who washed it, dried it, and did a first pass with the iron? And a solicitor furiously passing a post-it: “there’s a crease in the armpit!”
Huh well I never. I always assumed that The Secret Barrister was a pen name. Turns out it’s his real name. Her parents must be interesting people.
I love a man that does his own ironing x
Mmmmm really does it for me seeing a guy in a gown. Whoops did I just say that
