Bedford Stuyvesant to Glastonbury

Jul 1st, 2008 | Categories: England, Men's wear, Music, Style | by Michael Williams

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you would know that Mr. Shawn Carter was the headliner for the massive English music festival Glastonbury this past weekend. Paul Underwood over at put together a great slideshow of fashionable festival goers rocking the wellie look — which is one of the few times I would authorize a man to wear Wellington boots. Mr. Underwood also offers some insight into the mini-feud between Jay-Z and Noel Gallagher. Seems Mr. Gallagher was upset that a rapper was headlining Glasto and equally miffed at his band Oasis being rendered completely irrelevant in the process.

    The wellies look great on every outfit! The colors in the first outfit are amazing.

    Ha! Oasis was rendered irrelevant long, long before Glasto!

    But seriously, though, it’s amusing how delightfully right the wellies seem in each photo, esp. pics #1 and #5. The boots never look merely pragmatic.

    Okay, okay, you are right. I should have said:

    …being FURTHER rendered completely irrelevant in the process.

    The wellies do look good out there. I would say shockingly so.

    Noel Gallagher should start looking into a career involving smashing large fruit like the other Gallagher.

    Also if he doesnt like Jay Z headlining the concert maybe he should look into other festivals like Z-100s Jingle ball. At that concert I’m sure they would allow Oasis to co-headline with Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.

    The first outfit looks like something Jimmy Cliff might have worn on a more subdued day once he was getting money in The Harder They Come. Not sure how the boots fit into that, though they look awesome.
