One of my favorite pastimes is to people watch. I find it endlessly entertaining. Now, with all this wondrous, new, modern technology, I can people watch without ever leaving the comfort of my own home. What an age we live in! I am able, now, to behold the beautiful shoes of people in far away lands! And how beautiful they are!
Seriously, though, I doubt our predecessors would have predicted virtual people watching (aka street style blogs). There is a subtle difference between looking at blogs to observe the latest fashions, and people watching. I have noticed that so many of these gentlemen seem to be looking at their phones. The need for a place to see and to be seen has now moved into the abstract. The Dandy will never die, just move to the most fashionable dimension.
