It's another very sweaty afternoon in London today. I just came back from Sloane Square and walked around King's Road. It's my first time exploring the area in depth. Most of this will be probably old news for members who have frequented this area, but I was quite struck by the style of those walking around Sloane Square and up/down King's Road. The best way to describe the area is as the equivalent of Manhattan's Upper East Side, but definitely for a very young post-University crowd. Even more so than the Upper East Side, the (extreme) homogeneity of the style is very apparent. For men, the standard uniform is a a polo shirt (preferrably Polo Ralph Lauren) and/or casual shirt with sleeves rolled up, and khaki shorts. Shoes are invariably penny loafers or boat shoes. The preferred watch is a Rolex Submariner. For women, there are two uniforms. Either the female equivalent of what is described above, or a "bohemian chic" ensamble of blouse and skirt. Oversized sunshades, especially Gucci's, are very popular. In short, everyone is young, fit, beautiful and (looks) wealthy. It is really a pleasant area to visit, with outdoor cafes and mid-priced stores. PS: On another note, I've just been quoted 40 pounds per hour for personal training. Is this normal? I think it's really expensive!
