Letter: His crowning glory

Click to follow
Sir: Why does Amanda Armstrong assume that men who wear ponytails and suits do so only to show how caring they are ('Tails that ought to end', 2 July)? My partner possesses a glorious ponytail from his student days and is reluctant to cut it off. Not because he wants to appear a sensitive New Man, but simply because he thinks his hair is beautiful. It also suits his rather individual taste in off-duty clothes. So why should he lose his crowning glory just because his job forces him into a suit? Perhaps Ms Armstrong would prefer that he stayed at home instead?

Yours faithfully,


Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire
