I really like his briefcase.
This is Parrish...To me, only one other illustrator rides so high, their styles and subject matter so disparate though, one was the idol of the other, maybe even of each other, the innovator of light through darkness, Maxfield Parrish.
Just in time for sweater season, up here in the soon-to-be-frozen North...I'm looking forward to a long, colourful Fall, when I can wear those fall colours in my sweaters and my houndstooth and district check sports jackets.
Ditto, except my sport coats are almost all herringbone. Can't wait for fall.Just in time for sweater season, up here in the soon-to-be-frozen North...I'm looking forward to a long, colourful Fall, when I can wear those fall colours in my sweaters and my houndstooth and district check sports jackets.
I have some herringbones too, LOL. My two favourites are a grey and a brown Harris Tweed, both 3-roll-2 sacks from J Press. I have been debating about whether I should get my tailor to take them in a bit at the waist and back, since I've lost a fair bit of weight after I bought them ages ago.Ditto, except my sport coats are almost all herringbone.

An informative and entertaining illustration, for sure. Although, this year, while timely, it would be socially out of step. Several conferences are not playing and those that are, are enforcing social distancing in the stadium, reducing crowd size to just 25% of normal (I think?). Alas, times have changed, but the design of those sweaters would still be current!
Yes. Fashions for young women started veering toward the “mod” look in the second half of 1966.
I remember when sweaters like that were in style. I wish they still were. And that’s an astute observation about the girl way and the boy way of carrying textbooks. In the late 60s, students didn’t use backpacks. If a kid had to carry a few thick books to and from school, too bad. My 9th-grade world history book was a beast.^
Extra credit to the artist for strict adherence to the positions, and the sexual differences, of the way text books were carried back in the day. Very important. Sorta like the leg crossing thing, a guy at the knees, women at the ankles.
