Colors vs. England’s Skies

Does a baby blue and gold Rolls–Royce Corniche prove that money and taste do not necessarily converge?

Perhaps. But it’s also worth noting that in London, men are clearly not afraid to wear colors. And I mean colors: pink shirts, red socks and floral ties, of which there are whole racks in elite department stores.

Such an arrangement, combined with the Roller pictured above, would be jarring in most locales. But here, under London’s permanently overcast skies, it all makes perfect sense. Making a stand against the weather which, while responsible for the island’s remarkable horticultural productivity, can also make life here rather dreary.
