I've noticed an increasing number of women in Lewes wearing baggy, loose trousers with a crotch that hovers just above the ankles. Is this a new fashion? I'm confused, because I haven't seen people wear them anywhere else.
Also, I've noticed an increasing number of men with bushy beards. Should I stop shaving and issue my wife with some cheesecloth baggies so that we can both get in the Lewes groove?

I believe they're called harem trousers, though that shouldn't lead to any allegations about moslems/terrorists...... They've been in and out of fashion for decades.

They're called harem pants and were fashionable about 5 years ago so on the scale of all things Lewes they are now a must wear here with those highly prized tattoos that make you look like you have a dirty arm or neck.
Be careful about the ones with bushy beards if they have a rucksack and/or large sword and very bad BO
Always thought beards a sign of vanity myself decorating your face and all that - except when they're on women which is possibly the reason for burkas

I've noticed the beards. Has there been an influx of newly retired sociology lecturers?

It's not a Lewes phenomenon, it's called Peak Beard. As a long-time beardie weirdie I can promise Wait a Minute that the main reason for having a beard is laziness and/or comfort. And maybe a dislike for "products", including pongy aftershave and other olfactory adornments. However, there are so many beards around now that I am noticing that I am now "one of the crowd", rather than instantly identifiable as "the bloke with the beard", which does feel a little peculiar. If I shaved it off now I could start a new life, Reggie-Perrin-like, as no one would recognise me. Hmmm...

With this sudden increase of beardo weirdos I often wonder if there has been a increase in inner thigh soreness amongst the female population.
Beards also often appear very dirty - you only have to look at some of the mad mullahs and tramps

I suspect that a lot of beardy weirdies get nowhere near a ladies thigh

Re Beards, I once had the great privilege to be the member of an organisation in a section of which to be a member you had to have a full beard and a particular tattoo, these men were and still are very much respected both by their peers and many others.It is not just the beard it is also the man.
"Beard Wearer" please think again before using the razor, you rank alongside some of the best.

Well, dears, I think it depends on what sort of beard you have. A well trimmed beard, to my mind, can look very attractive. However, the long thin straggly beards, never trimmed and allowed to roam free are, to me, a complete turn-off. But I am far too old for my opinion to matter. I was watching on TV last night a programme about building Noah's Ark, and the academic involved had a beard and hair that seemed to be everywhere. He was a very engaging personality and I looked at what I could see of his face and thought how handsome he probably would be if only he had a shave and a haircut. He would also have looked a lot younger. But that's only my opinion, dears. If you are shaving your beards, by the way, any offcuts over 12" would be very gratefully received for my macrame doormat project.

Border Control, dear. I thought you knew. Hubby is doing time in Parkhurst. Unknown to me he had been growing cannabis in his manshed. I thought there was a funny smell, but put it down to his aftershave.
