On one level there’s the whole ‘following the trend’, topshop/primark look. Then there’s the think that seems to separate Brighton from everywhere else – the ‘don’t care’ look. If it looks good, feels good, wear it. Doesn’t matter if it was in vogue last year, last decade, or last century – or maybe next.
It’s better to stand out than to blend in, and you don’t have to be 16 to do it.
Guy dressed steampunk style, rather self-consciously. He appeared to have developed a liking for polishing his cane to avoid looking at people. Nice look, though.
