A milestone year perhaps? Puberty?

Especially when contrasted with the pinnacle of his writing like his first entry in the Dallas section of "Style and the Man"

Mr. Yellow below came from Jackson's CfM book, section Autumn.

Do you think that there's old popcorn in his hair, maybe, oh, three or four millimeters in?

And spiders?

Although a lot is known about the effect of certain colours on the heartbeat and rate of respiration.......

Mr Flusser is obviously privy to secret research on colours that isn't available to the rest of the scientific world.

It is unfortunate that many a homophobic males (closeted or outed) would neigh and find a color such as icy yellow (below) ghey on Mariano Rubinacci, when it could really bring forth his complexion. They associate such fashion color as ghey as it is used by designers like Jil Sander and Prada for men.

Icy Yellow . . .

When taken on its own merit (forget for a moment what the color might connote), next to Rubinacci’s complexion he would look very good in icy yellow.

Now Signore Rubinacci might not ever find an icy yellow jacketing as fabric designers tend to be fickle and are usually under the pressure of sell-sell-sell, (Carole Jackson also suggest icy colors for shirtings only), he does have the option of pure white (maybe too douchey for him though) or soft white (more like it) for the jacket below . . .

Not really, the science is actually pretty boring and predictable. See here

The art of color, for example in clothing, is much more fascinating.
