in pursuit of style.
Interesting point. Not even fax machines and emails with virtual signatures have been able to replace the couriers.And I think people should always be able to wear whatever they want to work, unless their jobs require them to be easily identified by a uniform. On the other hand, many people would use this privilege look like rag-pickers or $5 hookers, so maybe that's not such a good idea.
Do you think that they have freedom to dress as they wish? What if one of them wanted to wear a suit? I think Couriers have a uniform of sorts. These guys look a lot like the couriers in the US. Shorts over running tights and big messenger bag. Lots of layers.
What a universal look! Couriers in Toronto look the exact same, whether the are on bikes, roller blades or by foot. Pretty much a rebellion against uniforms of the Canada post employees and UPS duds. Ugh.David, imagine how ineffective cute-y pie leaflet distributor would be with this type of style? She'd still have her full stack at sundown.
I have friends who are couriers, It just comes down function. As the weather changes, the more extreme their accessories and layers get, And you can tell how long a messenger has been ridding by how big their bag is, bigger bags are for bigger jobs which go to the senior riders because they pay more. It is very much a fascinating way of life. Angels Point of View - Street Fashion Blog
More excellent shots.I have to say I would rather be indoors in weather like this!
Great pictures. Looks like they are having Fun doing their job. As much as I love technology, internet and gadgets. I still love sending and receiving handwritten postcards and letters the old-fashioned way. I love the sensation of opening an envelope and see a well-written letter or card. Or getting postcards from friends who are on vacation.
