Peter Jeffrey: Style Notes #3

Style Notes #3   They wore seersucker in the Raj, At pukka soirees in the Taj. The U.S. Senate on a Thursday; I hear Tom Wolfe did, on his birthday. They’ll say, “Old Sport, that sure looks cute, Your new seersucker summer suit.” Arrayed, like Southern gentlemen, In preppy stripes from way back when, You’ll hear, “He’s more than Gatsbyesque, He’s positively Ralph Lauren.” Peter Jeffrey
