At The Jazz Age Lawn Party

Michael Arenella after his show, Governor's Island, June 2012

On Saturday we headed out to the Jazz Age Lawn Party for the first time since it began in 2007 (!).  It happens now twice every summer, and the crowds are growing.  Here is just a few snaps of the gentlemen I found...

Seersucker Summer with Dr. Churchwell

Dr. Andre Churchwell, NYC, May 2012

Phone rings

Me:  Hello...

Voice:  Hi Rose, it's Andre Churchwell....(insert niceties)...I'm coming to Manhattan for the weekend with the family, and it would be great to see you again!  I'll be wearing a really marvelous pink seersucker DB with a straw boater to the symphony on Saturday....

Me:  When and where?  I'm there!

This is the life of an exquisite gentleman...causing a stir in with the rarely-done-because-thoroughly-impractical double breasted seersucker.  Almost as impractical as the three piece seersucker worn by Natty Adams.

Outside the Plaza Hotel...quite the classic Hollywood look.


Striking color combination on this Mogador tie Churchwell helped design with Anthony T. Kirby
