Gatsby’s Shirts

Well of course…
While I’m convinced that Paris’ luftacious bon vivant…Santos Dumont…had to bespeak his from Charvet

Onward. With a Five Year Journal.

Off topic, but I remembered that touching photograph and this caption:
A surely bereaved and confused Sargent Shriver is doted on and comforted by a Shriver granddaughter at the Eunice Shriver funeral Mass.

He died today. It would be lovely if you had the time to post that photo again for those who may have missed it.

Babe mentioned last weekend that he'd like to start wearing a tie bar. I sighed and thought to myself, welp, guess it's back to the Emerald City to try and get another audience with the ole 2" cuffed, Belgian wearin Wizard...XXOO

Lisa said...

Huh? and with a five-year journal??? I'm really missing the point on this one. Please fill me in. . .

From several things read over the years, I've come to think of Charvet as the epitome of wealthy bespoken elegance, more so than Lobb, Locke, or Huntsman. I even feel that if I get to Paris, I'll avoid it just so no illusions are destroyed

You know, you crazy fool, if you Google luftacious you are all over the fucking pages.

THIS IS WHAT I LOVE ABOUT YOUR BLOG !!!

Why the hell you came up with Alberto S-D is so random and so YOU......

Anonschocker...Fitzgerald, according to his editor Maxwell Perkins, had at least one more great novel in him. But he would poach little segments from his "novel stash" and write short stories from them because he needed the dosh. I poached the Santos Dumont from a story that I'll do someday when I ....

NCJack...I get clearly what you are saying but I'd not be afraid of destroying anything you've contrived as a result of walking in Charvet. They are the real deal.

Lisa...love you like family but here goes...unless you read everything I write and 100% of all the comments that are posited as a result of my provocative profundities, then I can't catch you up. ...with a five year journal.

SisterAllieVonPinhimdown...read this my girl and you'll be set strait on the collar anchoring that Mr.Dr.Baby should get.

Gail...yes, I will do this.

Look at the color of that tie with his hair, suit, and shirt! That must be like the view from a yacht on a white hot day.

I'm going to netflix that movie.

Kinda thought you were shedding a skin back there. I like your new style, however long you gift us with it, making us look for the thread [ooo]. Pigtown recently challenged her readers to submit ideas/names for the leads in TGG's upcoming remake, what do you think Max, any ideas for Daisy, Tom, Nick, Jordan?

Lisa said...

Well ADG, you got me there. I don’t read 100% of what you post and I don’t read 100% of the comments so once again, I’m outside the school yard chain-link fence looking in – oh well, it’s not the first time I haven’t been in on the joke. I really have been on my best behavior with you though, all this kinder/gentler New Years resolution crap. I’m taking my chill-pill every morning and I’m on the once-a-day very high dosage. It seems to be working except that by nightfall the effects seems to be wearing off and my kinder/gentler self starts to ebb and my real self starts to flow – I’ll try not to post after sundown.

PS, the ‘love you like family’ sounds kinda sarcastic. Would you like the name of my physician who can prescribe a ‘chill-pill’ for you? Oops, I guess it’s after sundown and I’m not really responsible for my actions anymore.

Can there really be a better version than the Farrow-Redford Great Gatsby?

Lisa...I'm not being smug or sarcastic. I was just kidding. Now go to bed.

Karena said...

ADG you are too much! Oh, and no there cannot be a better version of The Great Gatsby!!

I just don't know how a re-make is going to be better.
"...Leonardo DiCaprio, who will play Jay Gatsby, and Tobey Maguire, who is cast as Nick Carraway..."

Nope.

Flo said...

"I just don't know how a re-make is going to be better."

Doesn't it make your mind spin at all, beyond "Nope." Nope?

I'm open to it. I can think of a few ways, though I don't think Sam W. or Bruce D. can be topped. I'd love to be proven wrong.

Max, wear this to the opening: http://www.zazzle.com/spectacles_tie-151742363610862919
