Tuesday, December 9, 2008: On the Street…Cotton, Cashmere & Nylon, NYC

The teenage sensibility of dressing, at all times, to be seen
(because you never know who you’ll see at the gas station

cineplex, grocery store) is slowly replaced by the collegiate ease
of sweatpants and hooded sweatshirts, perhaps emblazoned

with a logo or mascot, in colours that cushion the eyes
(grey, navy, soft black). The other night, out for dinner,

Most men were in sweatshirts, women in black stretch pants
(not sweatpants, but yoga pants). We are too tired

For the structure of three-piece suits or wool or hats,
And sigh into clothes that stretch and hold us close.
