I started out thinking this post should say "the men of manchester are quite well dressed", but, as I sit at my cafe' table along a walkway under the theatre, I realize, between bites of a delightfully rugged egg, bacon and cheese on toast, that the people of manchester, at least those out and about at 8:55am (I've been up since 6am!!) are fabulously well-dressed. Quite a shock compared to my beloved unkempt santa cruzians, not that I don't partake in the casual fashion mantra that pervades my fair coastal town, but on occasion, it's simply lovely to see men wearing suits that fit neatly, adorned with expertly tied double windsor knots and shoes you can see your reflection in. And i don't mean old stodgies, but young folk dress to the 9's; the whole lot of them look great. Well, back to work, The Bravery open for U2 today at Manchester City Stadium and there is work to been done!!
