Dapper Dude

East Flatbush, Brooklyn in the 50s. Willy is wearing an electric blue, one button suit with extra wide lapels. Spread shirt collar and a perfect windsor knot on his tie. His pants cuffs are pegged and he is sporting blue alligator/suede shoes. His pompadour speaks for itself. Dapper.

He’s already reading Arthur C. Clark and Murray Heinlein. In about a year he’ll discover Camus and Descartes, then Ginsberg and Ferlinghetti. It was about that time that he began changing his wardrobe.

  1. Bill, I had the the same suit with the dropped belt loops and the pegged pants. I had the Mr. B shirt with the rolled collar and the skinny tie. I was missing the Alligator shoes but i did have my square toes. Ah the purity of youth. Bill Adams
