Yeah, someone wanted to photograph me again. I warn them I’m the most unphotogenic style writer ever. I spew admonishments that my facial expressions have a high constipation factor. I suggest a minimum of 100 clicks of the shutter, not because I enjoy the camera, but because I so obviously don’t.
This latest shot is by Rose Callahan for her project The Dandy Portraits. It was taken at The Campbell Apartment at Grand Central Station, one of the first places I went for drinks after moving to NYC.
I’ve never played the “What Are You Wearing” game, but this seems like the perfect excuse. I’m sporting a vintage Harris Tweed herringbone sportcoat, Brooks Brothers shirt and slim Churchill-dot tie, J. Press collar pin, Ralph Lauren Purple Label pocket square in paisley, grey flannels by O’Connell’s and Alden tassel loafers.
It was about 18 degrees that day, and unseen are some of my more infamous winter items, including my polo coat, patchwork cap (only one I’ve got), Black Watch scarf (ditto), and the much-despised vintage LL Bean navy canvas messenger bag. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD
