Clothes Horse, Then and Forever
They seek him here,
They seek him there.
His clothes are loud,
But never square.
You had no clue, Ray Davies wrote those telling words about me. Ray said, "Tommy, you are a dedicated follower of fashion."

I still own the jacket, a 40 Regular. Worn on my first date with Rosemary DiNatale in 1970. We took in Monterrey Pop at the Paris movie house across from The Plaza on a rainy afternoon.
This outfit, complimented with powder blue socks and desert boots earned me jealous stares, oohs & aahs.
