There is a great old post by Manton somewhere around here going into some detail about various silhouettes. That would certainly be worth your time to seek out and read.
I just picked up Manton's book on Amazon over the weekend, it should arrive Wednesday.

Pecards is the answer or part way the answer.

The genius was Sexton.

He's still in business, go and see him and stop romanticising Nutter.

Neofinitia snapped me sporting my Tommy Nutter coat last week:



I wore this to all of my SF meetups during that trip; it was the last opportunity I'll have to wear it for some time. And it was worth it

Thought I'd find a companion. There are just too many things to do, say, grab in the photo that I'm overwhelmed. Psychologists and anthropologists could have a field day with it. And I'm sure the subjects don't realize any of it in the moment. Except maybe the grabbing.

Don't sell Bianca short, I bet she left some marks. But yes, he did move up in weight class with Jerry. Trading cuts for bruises.
