“Before anybody mentions the handkerchief, it was not deliberate, I should say. I didn’t notice it unfolding.”
Menswear photos call for evaluation and for people to quibble. Michael C. G. Iversen knows it. But there is no reason for him to make an excuse. Who can show a photo of himself in a cream white linen suit in Havana with Hemingway on the wall in the background?
Additionally, señor Iversen performs excellently. The two-tone shoes, the elegantly tied silk scarf and the shimmering white shirt cannot be better. I also like that the uncontrollable handkerchief shines like the silk scarf.
“When I sat smoking in the cafes of Havana, tourists took pictures of me. I guess they thought that I was a shabby consul, whom they should know about,” Michael C. G. Iversen notes.
Apparently, even in Havana a cream white linen suit is an event nowadays.
But, as Butler loves to point out: One should never apologize for being well-dressed.
