The Royal Weeding Day was the sort of occasion that Brockley still does best. It showed a global audience of two dozen that, despite the rampant gentrification of Brockley, commoners can still dream of being accepted in to the establishment. Of course, it was also a showcase for Brockley fashion and there had been much advance speculation about who would design "those trousers" and while they were beautifully cut, with tasteful nods to Percy Thrower's famous trousers from 1956, in the end, it was the gardeners' well-honed bottoms that set Twitter ablaze.
