He would get very excited over this photo. This is him by a San Francisco landmark. The Transamerica Building I believe.


P7097815We didnt understand eachother at all but every time he would get to this picture he would shout “My grandson, My grandson” “NYU, NYU” I think is what he said.

Robert E. Bryan

Gawd, his oxford with that perfect bow tie and the hand picked stitching on that lapel! don’t miss his cuffs. If you don’t already know, Robert Bryan was the men’s fashion director of the New York Times Magazine, the men’s editor at W… and wrote this book: American Fashion Menswear. I always look forward to seeing Robert at appointments and shows/presentations during fashion week just to see his rings and belts. His fine fancy furnishings are always from various thrift shops and local flea markets. Refreshing to hear that beautiful items can still be found amongst all the hyper curated shabby chicness thats flooding our nations flea markets. Robert signed my book ” I leave you my last ring”.
