Our latest MOTH comes from Paris Review’s Spring Revel, which saw Gay Talese in classic form, complete with banker’s collar, English-style DB and martini in hand. We assume he left his hat at the coat check.
It’s a beautiful thing, not least because Talese has been hitting this circuit (and that cocktail) since before most of us were born. And the getup still looks good. A couple decades down the road, it’ll still look good, right down to the rumpled silk pocket square.
