Dressing down

The hot weather this last week or so has encouraged a permanent dress-down culture. On the platform awaiting the 07.17 this morning, there are few suits to be seen (though at this time in the morning a suit is perfectly practical attire). The one other man wearing a suit (but not a tie) combines his dark blue pinstripes with brown shoes. He doesn’t look Italian, so I wonder what his excuse is.

Perhaps, come November, fellow-commuters will be remarking on my running kit and brightly-coloured hat and gloves.
