    There's something undeniably contrived and posed about J.P.S:

    This guy fronts so hard it's ridiculous. The fact that he name-checks 21 makes him only faker. What's he going to reference next? The Racquet and Tennis Club? Where'd he go to college? Some liberal arts school in VT.

    Oh, he started a "literary salon". I was not aware of that. Now the monocle makes sense [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, he references the Skull & Bones Club for his fashion label:

    The sort of toadyish posturing and pretension that tends to characterize New York's grotesque "elite" microcosm.

    Actually, in the photo taken at '21,' his style reminds me more of Gay Talese's.

    I completely agree. Lookup "trying too hard" in the dictionary and his picture will pop up (Yes, I have a pop-up dictionary, why not?[​IMG] )

    Didn't the bank guy in "A Man in Full" wear skull-and-bone braces? I mean, the guy who led these work-out sessions, trying to get the saddlebags out of the clients. Now I have finally found out where he got the braces from.

    i'm not sure if he's referencing skull and bones (though the fact that he mentions 21 quite often probably cements the fact). i'm fairly sure the skull and bones motif in clothing precedes this guy's attempts. i remember seeing a navy and red club tie on ebay a while back from brooks brothers. if he starts putting "322" or "13" or "7" on his stuff then he'll truly be posturing.

    he's a poseur.

    When I read the story in the Times, I just thought he was a good example of the moral vacuity of the Dandy.

    You do understand that Manton's book ("The Suit") uses "dandy" as the personification of the well dressed man, right?

    I know very little about this guy, but the fact that he wears a monocle and claims to have "started a literary salon" make very clear that he is, indeed, a dillhole.

    I think he'd look better with a pince-nez.
