Forget those faded jeans, because...

Decent Uniform Works. And don't forget it. This latest in my occasional collection of soon to disappear Doha shop fronts has a certain appeal in its stark confidence. Bold upper case, black on white, the very epitome of formality. And above, one pressed grey trouser, one starched pastel blue shirt hung with a hint of movement - is this a small concession to modernity? And a window clean enough to reflect Paraglider's woefully informal shorts and yellow polo shirt. But in fairness, it was 43 Celsius at the time.

  1. THAT yellow polo shirt! In exchange, try and barter cost vs. advertising brand name on your blog.

  2. Hey - you've got a good memory :) But I can't guarantee it's the same yellow polo-shirt as appeared in that previous reflection (though it probably is - when selecting walking clothes I go for comfort before style!)

  3. Paraglider, you are a master of words, and the yellow polo shirt doesn't even count - I never spotted the reflection in the first place! Of course, I inspected closely upon you bringing it to my attention.

    Now I am going to sleep ;-)
