Mr. Gibson Gardens will know the latest, but GM is famous for his Levis worn short, Aldens & Brooks shirts.

^ More or less the old Ian Strachan uniform as it 'appens.

His frequent collaborator Mr. Glyn Callingham of Ray's Jazz fame is another name worthy of celebration. When Chris_H met him he was in Wine Penny Weejuns, An Olive poplin Sack suit, OCBD & a Knit tie. Famously uber-cool it is not recorded if Glyn was smiling at the time  wink

Graham remains as tight-lipped and cool as ever. His clothes express his mood and personality. Restrained, lean and purely expressive. Shoes by Alden, shirt by Brooks, jeans by Levi Strauss USA. Sockless in Summer. Red socks in winter. All jackets/suits strictly conform to standard issue Ivy League. Very like Ian Strachan as RS says. It's a uniform. I envy him/them their consistency, their contendness in minimal perfection. I get too easily bored and distracted and want to try things. But it's cats like GM, IS and JS who are the real stylists. They just know they've got it right. Graham and I are working on a book at the moment. I think it's gonna be good.

( again )Looking forward to that book being published GG ( next Autumn I think it was, as Jim has mentioned recently ? ). Reason for quoting this is that I can't seem to find that post of yours where you mentioned the book will be consisting of photos only, which you more or less regretted as I recall....

Been wondering about that since both you and Graham are obviously very capable of writing some additional text. I'm sure there'll be a good reason for this ( a lack of time perhaps ) but I just thought I better ask. Should be a good one whatsoever, though !

This book should be pre-ordered, pored over, devoured and hoarded.  It's gonna be sought after.

Looking forward to getting my hands on a copy. That and the re-release of Take Ivy (The Bogside Book Of Ivy)...

Ours will be good for the bog too. Pretty small, and very 'dipinable', to coin a word.

'His clothes express his mood and personality'.  Interesting.  As a boy I always named red as my favourite colour.  Now it's blue.  I wonder if there's some psychological reason for these changes, or is it simply a result of tastes changing as one grows older.

Re: What's Graham Marsh wearing nowadays?

GM is a blue obsessive. Speaking of which have you read the book Richard Williams wrote last year about 'Kind of Blue' and its associated cultural significance and influence? I thought there were some really brilliant insights and connections in it. I only lost interest when he related it to what I consider some of the really rank pretentious rock twaddle that emerged in the 70s. But on existentialism, new wave cinema, and the high-level cultural vibe of the early 60s it's just fascinating.

I don't know that book - though I should - only 'The Man In The Green Shirt'.  I have slight reservations about Williams as an author, though he did lead me in the direction of Dupree Bolton.  I'll look it up on Amazon.  Thanks for the tip.
