I liked this couple whom I saw making their way down the street; and who were quite fortuitously heading in my general direction.
I thought they just looked like any average shoppers both taking in the sights. Until that was they got closer and I notice this magnificent silver grey ‘Top hat’ placed squarely on top of this guys head.
He had obviously become immensely attached to this item and felt determined to wear it whilst out in the town. Despite the fact his missus seemed to me to be singularly unimpressed.
So then I got to wondering; had they perhaps attended a wedding that same day? Or possibly the day before? And despite having returned the bulk of wedding outfit he had hired; he somehow had inadvertently forgotten to return the Top Hat?
Whatever the case he certainly looked quite comfortable adorning this apparel.
In point of fact he carried it off rather well considering he was now in his less formal daily attire. Striding out in his T-shirt, designer jeans, and not forgetting of course those stunningly pristine white trainers.
It just goes to show that if one is bold enough to adorn this somewhat unusual combination of clothing and can add some slick trendy designer shades; then who knows maybe they could well start a whole new trend over here in what is considered by many to be a rather conservative location.
But you know what? It takes all sorts doesn’t it?
Personally though I liked the image…I thought it was very LA!
Plus I feel almost positive in my belief that just before they both left the car park today he undoubtedly doffed his hat and sang out those immortal words to his wife;
“I’m puttin’ on my top hat, tyin up my white tie, brushin’ off my tails”
“You bloody well are not darling!” came the loud reply
