Thank you for your supportive words! The only writing I’d consider worthy of publication would be a full narrative based on months of intensive research rather than the few weeks I have spent gathering the information I am presenting here. My goal in this admittedly incomplete history is to illuminate rather than exhaust a topic that few—if any—writers have discussed in any detail before. A more comprehensive narrative I’ll leave to the pros.Great stuff. Love the series. It would have to be tweaked and edited to fit the particular publication's style, but I bet you could sell what you've done to some periodical or website. Unfortunately, that was a much better market before the blossoming of the internet, but content still has some value. Just a thought.
That’s a great photo. I have a feeling Ralph charges more than 10¢ for that outfit.Separately, and of course, as he does so well, Ralph Lauren has found a way to bring together all the elements of Americana you just discussed in your note: Teddy Bears, Teddy Bear clothing/outfits and khaki.
