Diary: Badger's family ties

More exciting neck attire news. Ever wondered where TBWA\London's Robert Harwood-Matthews, affectionately known as "Badger", gets his rather fetching collection of cravats? Well, his auntie Nicole, the mother of ZenithOptimedia's Ollie Harwood-Matthews, makes them for him. How touching.

Aunt Nicole has set up a sideline manufacturing the affectations, and members of the Harwood-Matthews clan receive handmade cravats every Christmas and birthday. Quite whether there is a wider market given that the only other people to be seen sporting them are the 70s icons Alan Whicker, Basil Fawlty and Charlie Hungerford from the TV drama series Bergerac is a very different matter.
