Western attire is pretty much universal in Salone, at least among the locals. Printed T-shirts are particularly popular. Like the cars here, they seem to have been well-used in more developed countries before being sent to Africa to expire.

Most people have only a moderate grasp of English, which leads to some amusing sartorial choices. One of the ripped young guys working in our compound has a shirt with “Beer belly under construction” on the front. Another guard’s T-shirt asks the viewer to “Remind me again why I need a boyfriend?” My personal favourite though was worn by a man one coming out of a mosque. Its message? “Juicy Jew.”
