Matthew Steeples celebrates red fashion as Debenhams ditch red braces
Debenhams and the Mail Online recently suggested that the “garish” red braces, as sported by Gordon Gekko in Wall Street, have fallen out of fashion.
A spokesman for the store commented:
“The days when Gordon Gekko was a fashion symbol in the City has come to an end. City workers are abandoning styles once associated with flamboyant deal making and opting instead for colours which enhance the impression of being a safe pair of hands”.
“[After grey] our next most popular colour for braces is beige. We’re assuming that these are now the braces of choice when today’s bankers really want to let their hair down”.
How incredibly dull. We at The Steeple Times celebrate all things red and below display a selection of our favourite colourful characters:
Greed might not be good anymore but red most definitely is. May the fashion of Gordon Gekko please swiftly return.
