A few days ago I met Tom Davis in Central Park to snap a few photos. I’m planning to share some of his spiritual wisdom at Trad Man (please chip in if you can; the Kickstarter campaign ends in a week and we’ve a ways to go), and needed a shot of him. We did some improvising, and with my iPhone I was able to snap this shot with trees reflected in the water.
Davis, for those unaware, spent 50 years working at Brooks Brothers’ Madison Avenue flagship, and now works part time at J. Press running the custom shirt program. I did a Q&A with him in March, which you can find here.
On this gray and damp day, Davis was wearing a 35-year-old waxed jacket by Barbour, which had been stitched and repaired several times. I told him Prince Charles would approve. — CC
