Ooh Ooh Ah, Fashion

Walker Evans and I also witnessed an interesting fashion statement during our walk today on the same block of Norwood Avenue between Bryant and Summer.
We saw a couple standing outside their house at about 1:30 p.m., mugs of what I assume was coffee in their hands, smoking cigarettes. Apparently, the need to smoke overrode the need to be dry and warm.
What first caught my attention was that the man was wearing a long, white terrycloth bathrobe, while the woman was wearing a long, red terrycloth bathrobe. As we got closer, I noticed that they were wearing fall/winter bed clothing, he a hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants, she a hooded sweatshirt and print sleeping pants; both hoods were being worn.
When we got to the bottom of their walkway to the sidewalk, they waved and said hello, and I returned their greetings, also noticing that he was wearing black, large corduroy slippers, while she was wearing floppy bunny slippers.
Just another cool, rainy day on Buffalo's West Side.

Egyptian Cotton robe can provide the highest level of warmth and comfort when you get out of the shower or bath. For this reason you may consider purchasing a bathrobe and other products that are made from Egyptian cotton grown.
