75 Years of Esquire Style (29)


The Excerpt (November 1966)

"Try as we may, there are some people and things so bloody awful that we simply cannot refrain from shuddering at the sight or sound of them -- cellophane hat covers, for instance, and iridescent suits and ventilated shoes.. . silvery ties and white-on-white shirts; people who consider Skitch Henderson well-dressed; Skitch Henderson; shawl collars as well as white dinner jackets.. . monogrammed breast pocket handkerchiefs, and of course, that abomination of abominations called the Clarney -- a shirt with an ascot attached to it, for Chrissakes."
