I was bussing it through Saint Josse yesterday, a suburb of Brussels, and in front of a Polish "Sklep" (which, I take it, means "store"?) four men wearing scuffy jeans, work boots and t-shirts with a picture of a teddy bear and the words "Don't forget Beslan" were standing around, having a drink. A man walked past them wearing a worn down greyish suit and a black top hat. Just like that. I wish I could have captured their tough guy "are you seeing this douche?" smirks, too funny.
For more "are they serious?", take a look at: http://www.thesartorialist.com/ (NYC's most trendy), ww.copenhagenstreetstyle.dk (always at least a year ahead fashion wise), http://www.hel-looks.com/ (A Finnish blog - a girl I went to school with actually just left for Helsinki, wonder how much of the local style she'll take on during her exchange year. Knowing her, a hell of a lot) and the alma mater http://www.facehunter.blogspot.com/.
