Wow, this guy is awesome! It took me a while to talk him into having his picture taken, but after an hour's philosophising (ahem), he relented, and how grateful I am! What an outfit! It has a 19th century Russian peasant feel to it - in my mind. Is it the coat's collar, the red scarf, the cap, the leather belt over a wool coat, the deep-crotched trousers - even the shoes!? Brogues with no heel...I wanna say "tres cool" but he would hate it... Hey, how 'bout "gutsy" then?!

I love this picture so much for so many reasons. Yes, it's an awful composition (and totally out of focus having been taken from the upper deck of a moving bus) but I like it exactly for that. It almost screams to be used as my homepage main picture, with all the relevant information scribbled in the vast empty space on the right. Also, the crazy colours on that girl illustrates perfectly what my blog tries to celebrate, encourage, highlight (Note the orange hairpin!)... And then, of course, there's the energy and dynamism of it all. Isn't it just, like, so SayNoToFacion, dahlings?!

Alright kids, I ain't condoning permanent body harm here, but amongst all the idiotic tribal tattoos and their ilk, when I spot something different, I notice and appreciate! This one even has an air of irreverence in the context of cliched body "art"...Can't help thinking of Oasis's original band logo though... FYI, Kuwabara means "mulberry" in Japanese
I'd been dispairing at the lack of "talent" on the market that day when this blur of colours rolls by me. Not recognising them at first, I was relieved to see it was my homeboy Klaus and his lovely lady Julie in their sunday best splendour. And to think I had to travel this far just to see these two from across the street!...
Been a fan of his choice of threads for years. For a straight man to be this bold with colours, I can only admire and congratulate the fellow!
(You might wanna be more careful with your choice of plastic bags in the future, matey! Chartreuse, perhaps?!...Har har)
Another "Land Girls" scarf...It's spreading like fire
Lovely mix of colours, patterns and textures

Hmmmm... had high hopes for this supposedly legendary part of London... alas it was a rather disappointing experience. Mostly west london trustafarians in All Saints garb...These chaps were the only two that stood out...Yes there were a lot of scarfs around (or should we call them cravats?!) and this fellow (top) carried it off best. It was more his personality (combined with his get-up) that won me over. A rather pleasant gent. What could possibly be any more stylish than that!

Gorgeous vintage Raleigh. Nice touches all around. The workmen's jacket, the blue socks, the briefcase on the rear rack - but the best accessory of all is that green beaute. I used to whizz around "The Apple" on similar wheels back in the day, although mine had more of an emerald green tint to it...
Again, I broke my "no facion-types on me blog" rule. He's a facion photographer! Oh well...
