Howard's End on a Bicycle
Personally I don't advocate walking around looking like an extra in Howard's End or a Jane Austen mini-series for Channel 42 and personally I would prefer if the gentlemen had read Cycle Chic's guide - Gentlemen Prefer Bicycles - in order to choose an suitable velocipede for his daily journey, but damn it's a fine little video.
It's from the now defunct Fashion vs. Sport Exhibition at the Victora & Albert Museum.
Thanks to Matthew for the link and he's wondering what the music is. I'm guessing Vivaldi. Any guesses?
But hey, while we're in knickerbocker mode, it's a great opportunity to post this brilliant guest photo from Jacob here in Copenhagen of a Copenhagener on the Metro.
And thanks to another reader in Portugal who sent us a Cycle Chic advert from the cosmetic company Clarins that is all over the streets of Lisbon.
