Wow, what a life. That guy dated everyone from Lynda Bird Johnson to Sharon Stone.

Great article! His name came up at random in my acting class the other night so quite the coincidence. Sounds like a real gentleman.

I need to find out where he tans.

And I've always been curious if the whole restaurant-payment-in-advance-thing is true.
You know you are a baller when you can call a fine dining establishment, say, "Here's my CC number. I'll be in sometime within the next week. I will sit down, order, eat, and leave. Just charge my card. I don't want to have to deal with it."

I wonder what would happen if you said the same about your avatars, and then called her 'eh all right'.

It's easy enough to do, and a 100% hit with a date. You should try it, carpe diem and all that!

I did it for my then-girlfriend-now-wife's birthday one year. I ordered in advance as well, so the moment we sat down they began serving us our food and wine. At the end of the night I smiled, thanked the proprietor, and escorted my girlfriend from the restaurant. No check, no payment. She was so baffled she started to get angry at me, until I explained how I'd arranged it.

Dude has style, for sure.

Thanks...

I found the things he told me were more interesting (to my tastes) than what he wrote in his new book.

In a sidebar article I wrote (which is not online), he told me a story about trying to buy Cary Grant's last pair of shoes from Maxwells in London.

If you want to read something by Hamilton that is more in line with my article, check out
"Life's Little Pleasures." It is out of print but you can usually find it used on Amazon for a few cents.

Newsman,
If you could track down ex SF mayor Willy Brown I think it would make an interesting interview. He has a fantastic outlook on dressing and communicates it very well.
Good job on Hamilton.
