Fabulous New Orleans
Now that the seersucker season has expired, it seems that gentlemen wear tweed. Earth tones and pastels predominate in male New Orleanians' professional wardrobe.
I visited the Soul Train suit warehouse (warehouse being the operative word about that store's interior) and the black suits were in the minority. Every other color of the rainbow was well represented, as well as patterns I associate with musicians and Mardi Gras.
I see am the only man who wears a slouch brimmed fedora. There are plenty of proper hats in New Orleans, not just ball caps, but few with a full brim. There isn't a large population of Hassidim. This may explain why I can't find a good bagel.
I walk down the street and I feel like the Shadow.
