He will be missed. I have one of his suits.

Did great patterned cotton shirts for burma or burnshaft (I should check the label) in the 70s; I think I have three of them.

Pix in the NYT from the 50s and 60s show OC in well cut suits, single breasted, 3 button, peaked lapels. Nice.

Not so nice: NYT said his shoes were made by "Loeb."

I think he farmed out his name and some stuff, like suits, under his label weren't the best quality.

His autobiography is fascinating. He made his name with womens clothes, and socializing.....

yes, too bad about the farming of his name in the 80s, though. but it still doesn't take away the contributions he made in the past, specially the camelot years. and he certainly has a very cool name. oleg.

He was married to Gene Tierney.





And engaged to Grace Kelly.

I tend to equate him with Adolfo, Scassi, and possibly Halston even though people tend to regard Halston as more a revolutionary than the aforementioned others.
