I recently watched the fascinating and hilarious documentary Public Speaking, about Fran Lebowitz. It made me want to pull out Lebowitz’s two books, Social Studies & Metropolitan Life, which are among the funniest I’ve ever read. (My favorite Amazon review, by the way, begins: “This book is a feeble attempt to promote a philosophy that is contradictory to conventional judaeo-Christian values and tenets upon which this country was founded.”)
Lebowitz has a signature look: menswear. She’s typically found in boots, jeans, and a men’s tailored jacket. What I didn’t know until today, though, was that her tailored jackets look so good on her for a reason: she’s a customer of Anderson & Sheppard, the Savile Row tailoring house known for their comfortable, elegant drape aesethetic. Perfect for a classic gentleman, or, it seems, for a lady.
