Just finished reading the book, and I was wondering if there's any signifigance that Sherman McCoy wears huntsman bespoke suit and New & Lingwood shoes. Wolfe spends a lot of time writing about clothes, and I was wondering if there was any meaning that he has Sherman wear these specific brands other than the fact that Sherman is loaded. If Sherman wore a Anderson and Shepard suit or Green shoes, would that have a different meaning? Although, I must say, I was rather disappointed with this book.
