Style Icon - Gay Talese
G ay Tales is an American author. As a writer for The New York Times and Esquire magazine in the 1960s, Talese helped to define literary journalism. Talese's most famous articles are about Joe DiMaggio and Frank Sinatra. He espouses the importance of investing in quality- “if you get something well cut and well made, it not only lasts longer but also withstands the vagaries of the fashion cycle. The drape and fit of a fine bespoke suit will pay for itself many times over after your fashionable high street ones have gone out of fashion. If bespoke is out of your budget, I would recommend buying off-the-rack and then getting them tailored”. He approaches writing and life as a tailor would- methodical and precise. A truer Monsieur, he is refined living and classic elegance defined.
