A Seattle mom and dad with their child in a stroller and their dog make their way down the crowded sidewalk of a neighborhood street festival.Typical Seattle summer vibe.
Update 2:30 PM: Dear readers, several commentors below are asking why the skirt? Sorry not to have clarified for you to begin with that this guy is wearing a Utilikilt, a brand of utilitarian and work kilts designed and manufactured here in Seattle (kilts are a tradition in Scottish Highlands' menswear--think Braveheart and Great Britain's famous Highlands Regiments). Kilts in the United States are mostly worn only for formal occasions by people honoring their family heritage, commonly made of a wool tartan woven in a family pattern. But, here in Seattle there is a company that designs and manufactures kilts for everyday and work wear. In cooler months these are often paired with ankle high Doc Martins for footwear rather than the traditional wing tip Gillie Brogues. I've seen a lot of guys around Seattle wearing Utilikilts, and I've seen some female fashionistas adopt them for their ensembles as well. They aren't cheap! I'll post other images tomorrow to illustrate how this is pretty common attire around these parts :-).
