Favoured Fancies

   “Scrutinized with an anthropologist’s eye, two trends are emergent in (Ashley Jordan Gordon’s) pictures recording a particularly stylish and occasionally narcissistic tribe of East Enders… the second is the influence of the clothing of Londoners of years gone, apparent either in the wearing of old clothes, like the girl in granny’s tweed cost in Bishopsgate, or through reference to styles of earlier times such as the literary chap outside Leila’s Cafe with the elaborately tied neckerchief of a nineteenth century student.”
