Every guidebook has got Carnaby Street in it. It's supposed to be super cool but it's a load of rubbish. If it didn't have the big black iron street sign at the entrance then you wouldn't even be able to tell it apart from all the other shopping streets. It was probably pretty good in the 60s when all the beautiful people bought their boots there, but these days it's just a load of little boutiques and a couple of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.
The shops sell the kind of clothes that nobody wants to wear. I saw a pair of trousers about six inches long, and a hat that doubled up as a new hairdo. A pair of boots sat glistening in the window because it had a load of silver sequins stiched to it. It would be like having a disco ball on each foot. The only people who are going to wear that are Gary Glitter and the drag queens from "Priscilla Queen of the Desert".
