Eagles Are in Fashion


You've known that the eagles have been back in town for a while, but have you gone to visit them? No. And why not? You're probably thinking that nothing has changed since last year when you went and saw the majestic birds. You're just sure they're doing all the same soaring as ever before, all the same swooping down on fish like always, all the same regal staring. And you'd be right.

That's just like the eagles — always keeping you on your toes. Just watch: The next winter fashion week will be all faux-feather slacks, all the time.
