I had meeting with Lodge's son, Henry Sears Lodge, at the
St Regis Hotel, possibly the King Cole Bar, in 1969 or 70.
Like his father, he was (is) an imposing physical presence,
about forty, 6" 4" + built like a football lineman, and handsome
in a blond WASP patrician way. Even then I was relatively
knowledgeable about clothes and immediately recognized
that he was wearing bespoke: a blue double breasted,
side vented suit in a winter weight even though it was
summer, complemented with a spread collar shirt and
a club tie. Probably a club he actually belonged to.
I felt like a peasant in my Brooks or Paul Stuart "tropical"
Ivy uniform, even though I had by then moved beyond
button-downs collars and was wearing Church's shoes.
We discussed a project in South America in which he
was involved and I might be interested. As far as I
know, it never went anywhere.
