OSHEAGA/ Festival Garb
I'm at OSHEAGA Outdoor Music Festival this weekend in Montréal, covering it for CBC Radio 1. The festival uniform - dress for a bit of rain! - leaves something to be desired. The guys look like Dude clones in their cargo shorts and backwards baseball caps. It would be refreshing to see someone in one of these colorful, Acne jackets ($549) which, the company has poignantly named 'The Montreal Jacket'.
