A New Color
This short peacoat grabbed my attention. Camels, beiges, light browns and other earthy neutral tones are not popular choices for outerwear here in Beijing, especially among more stylish youngsters. Such colors are commonly viewed as less than ideal for the Chinese complexion. The usual preference is for colors perceived as offering high contrast: blacks, navies and grays. Most Caucasians also hesitate before picking up a camel colored coat. Still, this particular wearer is looking good. I had no time to chat, but I can just tell that he does something involving rock music.
