On Friday, actorÂ Max Irons was all “I think New York is more stylish than London.” Having been to London for a hot minute (72 hours) I would agree, but I don’t feel comfortable in doing so. I’m sure I need more research.
But Max, being the son ofÂ SinĂ©ad Cusack and some guy named Jeremy Irons — he’s an actor supposedly — may at least be a reasonable go-to on the matter because he was born in London, and being a fancy pants (actually his godmother is a travel agent), has traveled to NYC extensively.
Max didn’t cease at his one thought on the topic, but proceeded:
“I think a lot of people [in London] donâ€™t give a shit about what they wear, but when youâ€™re looking out the window of a taxi in New York, there are stylish people everywhere.”
As a New Yorker I agree on the latter half, but I’m biased, so my opinion on the topic is null and void. I also like to assume he saw me outside his taxi, so again… null and void.
Jeremy’s equally gorgeous offspring, but in a less refined way, continued to say:
“Itâ€™s only in the past four or five years Iâ€™ve started to get in touch with what New Yorkâ€™s really about. I like it, it feels quite like London,” he explains, “Everythingâ€™s bigger and faster here, itâ€™s kind of overwhelming.”
Well then, there it is. Insight about fashion in NYC and London from a London native who has been coming here since he was knee-high to a grasshopper. Do you agree?
