There is among certain street types the attitude of "Hey, we just came here to hang out in our Gingham, not become rock stars." In almost all cases they were brainiacs who knew more about Gingham than any of us. Of course they're not going to show their face. These are academics that have reputations to uphold. They can't be caught using slang and making pronouncements that might be misconstrued and then ruin their chances of funding. But they all have cool shoes. Street Style fact: nobody minds having their shoes shown to the world. Once we convince them to show us their shoes they no longer mind if it catches some of their Gingham. Trust me, there is a fortune in Gingham here, these people are private collectors and so it is quite understandable they'd hold back a bit. We're going to turn these guys into a regular feature: Stompin' on the Gingham Nation.
