Kudos to Ivy Style contributor and Andover Shop employee Al Castiel III for a profile on Paul Winston on Town & Country’s website.
One fan of those Ivy League-inspired roots was John F. Kennedy, who became a Chipp customer when his brother-in-law, Peter Lawford, brought him into the shop one day in 1958 when Kennedy was still a junior United States senator from Massachusetts. Lawford had been having Chipp make his clothes for his television show The Thin Man. Bobby Kennedy soon became a customer as well. For the duration of JFK’s presidency, from 1961 to 1963, Paul and his father attended to Kennedy and did bespoke suit fittings at his private apartment at the Carlyle Hotel.
