Given the look reminds me of my HS senior year photo, I'm guessing you graduated somewhere between 1970 and "73.

That's not me. That's actor Mark Hamill of "Star Wars" fame. But your estimate is very close! He was born in 1951 and he graduated high school in 1969. I myself was still in diapers at that time.

Hamill is one year younger than me. So he must be getting on. And here I was, thinking what a dashing fellow @Corcovado was! (Of course, I'm sure he was and still is, no fear).

Hamill was the chap in the funny adverts on TV recently with Sir Patrick Stewart. Stewart was carrying a suitably grizzled, ancient cricket bat in the first one to counter Hamill's baseball bat in their "Cudgels at Dusk" duel.To wit:

Last year on official work - had to bust out the Open Road. That plane is unreal - it just flat out thunders when they launch.

I'm also class of '69. That would have been my guess if I had read this earlier, looks like it's straight out of my yearbook.

I've been reading judicial biographies for a seminar class. Practically every time that Justice Lewis F. Powell is mentioned he is described as "courtly." Seems like he dressed pretty trad too.

I've posted about Justice Souter on this thread before, but I thought this rarely seen 3/2 seersucker suit was worth posting.

And some bonus pictures.

This last one is textbook: 3/2 sack, muted neat tie, collar roll, and a surcingle belt. Anglophile guy chatting with him appears to be wearing a Barbour jacket and emblematic tie too!

I looked at the photo @Doctor Damage, and read your signature line (Conan quote) right below, and I thought how appropriate! The Conan declaration seems to fit these fellows to a T -- they seem ready to crush their enemies, hear the lamentations, and so forth!
