See mid life crisis big wage earning divorcees a lot in brand name gear. Good example is this fat 50 year old public servant in his suit but with brand new Roshes, bbeats headphones and a Harley Davidson backpack I saw at the bus stop.

I became extremely smug when I realised I probably earn 1/4 of what he does but I'm listening to a far superior set of IEMs I've gotten 7 years use out of, wearing leather lined handcrafted American horse hide on feet and my bag is milspec-plus (Gregory SPEAR Jp consumer spec) and practically indestructible.

Neither of us is getting laid, but I'm more smug Ubercool

Short sleave shirt, ankle grazer spray on jeans and loafer is the costume of choice for some here, terrible.

What annoys me (and I shouldn't care, obviously) is people wearing loafers or boat shoes with exposed ankles when it's cold and wet.

Palace getting some real love on the Essex streets. The youth have embraced
Went to see Raekwon in London the other day and the hip-hop backpacker white boys are on it
The banter boys will not be far behind

I think I've never seen a trend so spread all over Europe, if not the world, at the same time like this one. I've travelled a lot for work and holiday during last months or so and everywhere it was the same.
