ST. PETERSBURG: I saw this guy standing along the canal in St. Petersburg during a beautiful summer sunset.
Hands down, he had the most original outfit I came across during my three days in Russia’s imperial capital. Menfor – as he calls himself – is a former biker and factory machinist who now makes various ‘trinkets’ such as necklaces, including ones that ‘protect you’ from harm.
The accessories he was wearing on his outfit were incredibly varied – from a US-styled sheriff’s hat and Harley Davidson belt, to Russian icons, hard-rock memorabilia and communist buttons.
To top it off, he has a flower pinned to his leather coat.
