(9) Threads (f.k.a. Garmento)
Wielding a pantsy pout of painful fashionableness, my character Lee owes his job security to his ability to tread on eggshells around the fragile ego of his high-maintenance boss, the lead designer Poncho, in whose presence a suitably worshipful demeanour is advisable.
Leading up to this scene, the fashion house of Poncho Ramirez (“Peel off my Ponchos”) has recently launched a line of men’s underwear whose padded cup is conceived as the male answer to the Wonderbra. The movie’s production company caused just such items of underwear to be manufactured, and distributed them freely to all cast and audience members for which this seemed to be indicated: my own such freebie has served me most aspirationally ever since.
