Striped Onion Johnny Shirts – latest Paris vogue

Three weeks back, I returned from a visit to the UK and started seeing those stereotypical ‘Onion Johnny’ blue striped tops. Initially I thought the tourists were flooding in, but then the more I ventured around Paris, the more I saw, and those wearing them were actually French. Over the past three weeks this latest vogue is gathering in momentum. I imagine it won’t be long until the beret and French cravat make a come back!

That’s just reminded me of an incident on the metro last year, when Madame Grenouille started moaning about how all the youth of the district now had ‘black berets’. I scratched my head, and retorted, ‘but I haven’t seen anybody in a black beret’. It then dawned on me that she had actually said ‘blackberries’.

Hi Nina, phew, glad I’m not the only one without all these modern gadgets. I was starting to feel like an odd sock. 🙂

Whilst I take most the photos for the blog, this one was from FlickR, by Penningtron.
