Dapper Cabbie

Even though previous Bangkok city planners have nicknamed this metropolis, "Fashion City", I wouldn't exactly call the taxi drivers here fashionistas. Some Bangkok cabbies don't even wear shoes. When I hopped into a taxi yesterday with a cabbie sporting a straw fedora, it was a pleasant surprise. The retro tropical look suited him well, and the style seemed apropos for this city and climate. I wish that all Bangkok cabbies were required to wear hats.
