All this talk of funny handshakes, dodgy coloured shirts, and backroom deals, is silly at best. Most common people who serve the agenda are not being consciously complicit or receiving kickbacks. The beauty of Christianity is that it gives us a better explanation: demonic influence of our thought processes and the 7 deadly sins.
I have to confess I've been drifting into the arena of the facetious, regarding some of the remarks surrounding his love of a purple shirt. However i just came straight from his latest YouTube vid, and i do have to wonder just how many of them he's got...
Seriously though, it is a bit weird. I had no idea that purple had any relevance beyond Roman emperors, but he's adorned in it again for yesterday's tidings of woe.
If you look at his thumbnails, he does wear it a lot, however i think on many he's just banging them out on the same day.
We know that Masons love to tip the wink to their Brothers in ways like this, i just dont think that wearing a colour of shirt is a way they'd do it. It's mundane.
As you say, he has a very much Northern working or lower mid class outlook. He always wears a button shirt for his vids, and i'll bet he's sensible in his spending on clothes and as long as he thinks he looks presentable, would have a relatively spartan wardrobe.
I dont wear dress shirts that often, i've got about 4-5 presentable ones. One of them is check with a violet colour as part of it. If i was a YouTuber with his outlook on dress, no doubt that would crop up on rotation as often as his.
In conclusion, i'll judge him far more on the content of his messages (dodgy IMHO), than his wardrobe.
Incidently, i seem to recall when this subject came up he had about 1.3 or 1.4m subs, he's now 1.54m. This would lend credibility to the notion that his veering off-road (a bit), was a subs & views & relevancy grab, as much as a dastardly bit of social engineering.
