Ed, i was (maybe) a bit too harsh indeed. i forgot i was speaking to a lady. I'm usually nicer with girls...  
Jealous of what ?It's just strange that 95% of your posts are about these books. Your last three posts are edifying in this connection.  Or maybe it's just because you ain't got anything interesting to say after all. Second and last reply to you. Loosing my time.
Something i want to say for a while. I kept it for me long enough, now it's too late : i can't stand your posts that are just advertisement for your shitty books. And the covers are hideous BTW.Cheers !
No, not that i know Browniecj. From a personal point of view, even if i was a little parisian kid in the late 60s early 70s, i do remember seeing some original "minets", and this vivid sketch really brings them back to life. 
"Minet du Drugstore. Paris, 1969." Sketch by an original Drugstore gang member.   The year is interesting if you compare with what was happening in England.

The authors of the book have an unfortunate tendency to sum up the Ivy League look in Weejuns, Khakis, & Button Down. What Rod in his blog calls "dreaded business casual"...   
On the Ivy League look subject, found this article really interesting. It sums up a lot of what was said here, and answers to some questions. Some statements sounds true not only for the Ivy look, but for "the look" too imho.   http://www.ivy-style.com/the-rise-and-fall-of-the-ivy-league-look.html   PS: just saw that Roytonboy in his post "What is Ivy League Style ?" a few pages back spoke of this article, and of another (caustic) one from the same author about "The...
Not sure at all this is the good picture. Babs is probably the guy with the adidas T-shirt (fourth from left). What about the first lad from left ? He looks quite familiar, but...
Found this picture of 60s young Minets in front of the first Renoma store. The DB Blazer was one of their favorites, but i was surprised by the one in sheepskin, that are not very common in France...
