Kempt Man of the Hour: Adam Duritz
*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*
John Waters wasn't the only one to surprise us with his stylistic splendor at the *Cry-Baby* musical premiere the other night. Waters' fellow Baltimorean Adam Duritz, the Counting Crows frontman and record producer, blew in like a breath of fresh air with a preview of coming attractions, sartorially speaking, swathed in summer suiting befitting a southern gentleman.
Duritz was decked out in head-to-toe Paul Smith, and as carefully coordinated as any dandy worth the name: a seafoam green seersucker suit, pale mint green shirt, greenish blue bowtie with a subtle floral motif, a blue belt and light-blue tinted white wingtips. Seeing as how this is our second musical MOTH in recent weeks to be seen sporting Smith's threads—the first was David Byrne—we might deduce that his fitting rooms are the choice destination for songwriters looking to spiff up their act.
