I stopped by J. Press today and salesman Robert-kun was wearing an olive herringbone sportcoat and black turtleneck. I said he looked very jazz-beatnik (he’s a jazz guitarist, after all).
Then I peered across the room and there was a fellow in a beret, and he wasn’t a young hipster.
And so we revisit this 2010 post, now with updated text, on that rare preppy-beatnik crossover with this tribute to Charlie Dalton, aka Nuwanda, the rebellious rich kid in “Dead Poets Society” who has a brief affair with a saxophone and beret.
I wonder whatever became of Charlie… — CC
