My look is very easy to maintain but that wasn’t always the case – in the 80s, I couldn’t find anything. Every time I get tubular ivy league blazer that didn’t have padded shoulders I had to treat it like it made out of gold. They were never out of the dry cleaners – I only wear them to weddings, funerals, and gigs, and I’ve still got them now.
