I'm here at I____ studios in the west village, milling about with 15 others for a QG photoshoot about London, which in advertising terms (what runs magazines) means Beefeater gin. Beefeater gin means Lonfon. It's a symbiotic thing. QG = the love of London, represented by the Good Life = Beefeater = London = New York = Stylish fashion for men = QG subscribers. It's part of the couture of London besides raincoats. Teddy boys and soulboys wearing black, or dandy at Wimbledon, drinking Beefeater and Tonic, if not getting told off for talking too much. Wimbledon being, of course, rather stately.
