Christopher Isherwood, by Allan Warren, 1972.

Yo, I think I blew up Milstil’s spot on Allan Warren. Dude’s photos are on ASW now, too. Yr welcome, hashtag menswear. Or maybe I had a good idea like ten minutes ahead of everybody else.

Note MOP buttons.

Shot by Bob Richardson, father of Terry. I like Richardson Sr’s work better, but I suppose I am the type to prefer 50-year-old sleazy bad taste to its contemporary iteration.

There’s a full version in the book Unseen Vogue, which has another woman, and a guy in a #menswear perfect dinner jacket, but alas.

Michael Caine.

This, I think, is from the set of Pulp, a movie with one great joke, a few okay ones, and a whole lot of Caine lounging on stuff.

I’m basically sold on the utility of a burgundy oxford bal, and I’ve got a bit of a crush on these two Meermins. The top pair, in museum calf, is a lovely shoe, but probably a bit fancy for my scruffy, tweed-and-cord-draped hide. That mottling is something special, though, and that right there is a well-proportioned captoe if ever I saw one.

The bottom pair, that I could work with. One of the things that stuck with me from FIT’s Ivy Style exhibit was a mannequin in OCBD, sweater vest, bow tie, and a slightly worn pair of #8 shell balmorals. Something about it poked some deep-seated Yankee thriftiness lying around in my brain: shoes that were eminently correct with a suit, but that still fly with something a little more relaxed.

Also, though I know this is such a picayune thing, I want a pair of shoes with a fudge welt.
