And from Our Rome Correspondent


Though the weather is dull, today in Rome "in" people are mostly buying Rose, in the Roman style.
This was taken by our Rome correspondent this morning, who can be plainly seen in reflection in the window, is that a purple flash?

I swear, there must be a live webcam set up outside that place!!! Just think of the people you'd see coming in or out.

Can't detect anyone.

Rose vestments? Wonderful! But why the crimped style? Why not a full vestment rather than a cut-down tabard? It makes you think of a sandwich-board! Surely we can do better (and perhaps more economically) in these challenged times.

Purtroppo, la ditta e costosissima!

Mr Young, It depends on what sells.

To William Young:

Click the picture to see it full-sized, and scroll over to the right side. Full vestments are on display on a body form inside the store. I'm guessing that the smaller "sandwich board" tabard fits in the window display better. But that's only a guess.
