    Does anyone know who Philp Johnson - the architect - tailor is? Also, does anyone know who Claus Von Bullow's tailor is. I heard A&S, but was too young at the time of his trial to know what an A&S cut looked like.

    Hi Alexis:

    I was wanted to know who his tailor was.

    I guess the way I wrote it was ham-handed.

    He has great suits.

    Thanks so much, though.

    Not sure about his clothes, but eyeglasses: "Le Corbusier inspired Philip Johnson to design a similarly rounded pair of glasses for himself in 1934, which he had manufactured by Cartier."

    [​IMG] Billy's suit, Ivonne's (Sivone) tie, my shirt - old, really, really old. Billy and I are both better now (I hope) and Ivonne's closed up shop.

    Can you please tell me who "Billy" is.

    Also, does any one know who did Von Bullow's clothing?

    David Hockney also wears a similar pair of frames.
