Only Fools & Horses characters are fashion icons, according to style bible GQ

ONLY Fools and Horses characters are fashion icons at the forefront of trends, according to style bible GQ.

Del Boy Trotter’s sheepskin coats and brother Rodney’s camouflage field jackets are ahead of their time, fashionistas claim.


Even the checked jackets worn by dim-witted road sweeper Trigger are now a fashion must while Uncle Albert’s ragged jumpers are all the rage, according to the magazine.

And although recorded, for the most part, in the 1980s, Only Fools has a look that is “weirdly modish”, GQ says.

It advised readers to invest in a classic sheepskin overcoat, saying “Del Boy knew where it was at when it came to outerwear” and that it “would form a centrepiece of your winter wardrobe”.

The magazine adds: “Rodney Trotter was rarely seen out of his trademark camo field jacket and neither should you be.”

Trigger’s checked jackets got the thumbs up, with stylists claiming: “No one wore a statement blazer better than Trigger. Trigger is a surprise style superstar.”

Of Uncle Albert’s jumpers, the magazine adds: “We’ve been banging on about sweater vests for a while now and no one wore the style better than Uncle Albert. Team yours with a duffle coat and baker boy hat for full vintage effect.”

Only Fools and Horses, starring Sir David Jason as Peckham wheeler-dealer Del Boy and Nicholas Lyndhurst as his brother Rodney ran from 1981 to 1991.

Also starring Roger Lloyd-Pack as Trigger and Buster Merryfield as Uncle Albert, the show became one of Britain’s best-loved sitcoms.

The style bible added: “Although much has changed, today’s pieces we associate with Del Boy, Rodney, Grandad, Uncle Albert, look weirdly modish.

“The clothes are so on point we like to think that the show’s original costume designer would be proud.”

It then gives readers some pointers, adding: “Here are the cushtiest OFAH style lessons you should apply to your own wardrobe right now. And if you don’t, then, well, you’re a plonker.”
