Burgundy & midnight blue cashmere/silk grenadine grossa silk, Mackinlay plaid tartan irish poplin, corn yellow grenadine grossa silk and 6-fold red stripe on midnight blue with red grenadine fina stripe with rolled edges. Another batch of commissions that were wonderfully executed by David and his team.
While all of my other suits are side-vented, I have a ventless DB from Hickey-Freeman in a medium-grey heavy flannel with chalk stripes. I like the drape-y look and it's great for our cold Chicago weather.
The decline of the real Liz Phair is an even greater disappointment. Her first three albums were great, but then she left the CHI for LA to become "popular" and ended up writing tunes with pop tune factory "The Matrix".
I'm enjoying Jacques Demy's 1967 musical "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" starring the luminous starring Catherine Deneuve, her late sister Françoise Dorléac (earthier, but equally sexy), Michel Piccoli, George Chakiris (who portrayed "Bernardo" in the movie version of "West Side Story") and the irrepressable Gene Kelly.
The early black-and-white opening credits were spoken by an announcer rather than using title cards.
Two early Andy Grifftih performances are among my favorites - The naive, Christ-like Will Stockdale in "No Time for Sergeants" and the very mendacious and power-hungry "Lonesome" Rhodes in "A Face in the Crowd".
Note to self: Buy a few more Sam Hobers.
Here, here, Nii.
I work across the street from one of the two Paul Stuarts in town, and I enjoy what they are doing with color and patterns, especially with the Phineas Cole line.
Thanks, maestro!
