    1. NORMA: He has the makings of an André Leon Talley
      caftan model.

    2. I like kaftans. Men from Africa (Nigeria in this case) have very colourful, elegant, kaftanesque gowns - they use starch like madmen.

      I think this is one of the very few true portraits of Hercule Poriot ?

    3. MAGO: The African caftans are beautiful. And as Miss Scarlet says about caftans… “No gussets to sew. Gussets are so fiddly.”

      Hercule Poirot’s moustache turned UP, whereas this one droops DOWN.

    4. Indeed! I can run up a caftan in half an hour from a pair of old curtains. You really can't say the same about a gusset.
      And it's always a pleasure to feel the wind between my thighs.

    5. MISS SCARLET: I like to feel the breeze
      Betwixt me knees.

  2. Oh - like Dali's and Willie's. Willie's had a name, "Es ist erreicht", something like "Reached, finally".
    Thankfully I do not understand nothing from tayloring.

    1. MAGO: Kaiser Wilhelm…The Imperial Moustache?

    2. Francois HABY was the Emperor's Hoffriseur. He developed a special tincture, or Bartwichse (throw in tasteless jokes), for the Imperial beard, also a Bartbinde.
      Btw HARBY had his salon remodeled by van de VELDE (!): Green sinks from marmor, dark red (maroon) Mahagony panels, violet Wandfries / moulding - and: open, that means not camouflaged or hidden, pipes for water and gas, made from Messing / brass. Very colourful, very modern & avantguarde, Maxe LIEBERMANN did not like it, but nevertheless stayed as customer. Part of the salon still exists and is stored in the Stadtmuseum Berlin.

    3. MAGO: François Haby is worthy of a post over at The Hair Hall of Fame.

      I must see to it when time permits. Danke sehr.
