Dr. Andre Churchwell, NYC, May 2012
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
Then we snuck some photos inside near the gorgeous Palm Court...
