It is more Advancedâ„¢ not to wear them, but to photograph them in combinations that you claim not to wear.

Joining this thread late, I note there are quite a few photos of Clifton Webb, who used Scholte.

Voxsartoria states that he was "diminutive." Clifton Webb and my uncle were friends, and I met Clifton and visited him at his house a number of times. While he was certainly lean, I wouldn't describe him as "diminutive." As I remember, he was a man of average height. Admittedly, I was but a boy at the time, and that might have skewed my perspective, but I was a big boy, and if he had been a tiny man, I think it would have stuck in my memory. As best I recall, he was not appreciably shorter than my uncle, who was about 5'10" or so, perhaps even a bit taller.

I believe he played Mr. Belvedere in the movies.

Webb was 5'11", above average height then and now, so your memory is correct. We'll just add this to the J. Libourel Should Write an Autobio library.

I meant that he was slightly built...I apologize if that made him sound like whnay.

Bonzo went to college only three years after Mr. Belvedere, which is a testimony to American Optimism.

Do you believe that Webb's suit is a Scholte drape cut? I'm curious because that (with slightly trimmer pants) looks very much like what I get from my tailor.

Webb was one of Scholte's celebrity clients. Webb was one of these old school actors who often insisted on wearing his own clothes in movies, rather than costume.

There is a scene in Laura with Webb in the bath. He looks quite thin. Boy, I love Google.

I might mention that Clifton Webb in real life was very much like most of the characters he played in movies--courtly, dignified and somewhat caustic.

Today, he would be called a zinger.
