So today at lunch, after having purchased my salad and walking back down Bond Street to the office with my new colleague at work (a whole other story... I've refrained from blogging about him just yet... don't fear... it won't be long) - I was stopped by two Japanese girls who promptly informed me that they were working for a Japanese men's fashion magazine; and wanted to photograph me.
My new colleague instantly got very excited and agreed on my behalf. Thanks. Consequently I stood looking very uncomfortable in front of a red London telephone box on Bond Street while getting photographed and simultaneously being asked where I had bought my clothes. Several passerbys stopped to watch. And snigger. (Fair enough. I would have done the same if I had have been passing by.)
Of course, when I got back to the office I quickly googled the name of the magazine "Gentry" and after a bit of research, found the following:
"Shinro Hayashi, editor in chief of Gentry, a fashion magazine targeting men age 40 and over..."
Great. I'm so pleased I'm inspiring fashion for Japanese men over the age of 40.
