Back to CPH



Can you tell that I'm getting a little nostalgic for CPH. I was going through pictures when I came across these two. I saw the gentlemen in the white pants walking down the street. I made a mad dash to position myself to take a picture of him. (Definitely click on the picture for a closeup of his shoes. Those Danish men wear great shoes). His friend, in the plaid shirt, saw me and said, "What about me?" What else could I do but snap, snap away at him.

I haven't done a style report for CPH, but here's a quick primer. Plaid is in. Plaid shirts and especially plaid scarves. The latter is a huge trend. Everybody and their mama wears scarves in Denmark. The young do the trendy plaid, the older folk (such as with the gentlemen in the white trousers) do it in a more conservative manner....wow, come to think of it, I got a scarf in the exact same fabric and color as the gentlemen in the plaid shirt. Hmmm. Back to style report. Drop crotch pants are in, so are oversize jackets....nothing too different really from what's going on in NYC or in London/Paris.

I'm renting a camera from Calumet in Cambridge. Hopefully, I'll have some great Boston pictures to share with you next week. In the meantime, dress well and prosper.

Saw the same thing in London last week! I myself suffer from 90's-plaid-flannel-shirt-aversion syndrome, so I don't know if I'll join in on this one. But, will definitely be adding more scarves.
See, there's hope for me yet, as an older hag without much style.
Also,I saw lots of great boots with the jeans tucked in. Yay!
