Lindbergh in Paris.

“It was a wave, an unbelievable mass.” The old distinguished Frenchman laughed, pointing to the old photograph of him that night on Le Bourget Field, hundreds of thousands of people behind him, running in different directions. Chaos. Celebration. The Spirit being carried by hand in the background.

“I look so young.” Emile’s accent is thick. “So present.”

He’s wearing the same silk matka blazer he wore in the photo, I’m sure of it.

I’m in Dunkirk today, meeting with him by chance, accident really — which piqued my curiosity... this photograph in his blazer pocket, just by chance, like I bet it is on most days of his long life.

May 28, 1927 meant a lot to him.

Emile’s Blazer (No. 4483). Timeless three-button front. Single vent. Besom pockets at hips. Three functioning buttons at cuffs. Made in India.

Men’s even sizes: 36 through 48.

The best tweed I've ever owned
Don't be misled by this jacket's understatedness. In one donning sweep, you become author, Oxford don, documentary maker, and confidante of women. It has to do with the odd, unexpected way the tweed both seems to grip you and also layers itself drapingly on your arms. I wore it recently over a black T-shirt to a writer's group meeting, and I was the best dressed person there though I did not draw undue attention to myself. I have traveled the world in search of nice tweeds-Ireland, the UK, HK, Thailandand never found any that I go on wearing. This one I will never cease wearing. One of the best things I've bought out of the Peterman catalog, and far more dazzling than the photo and the ad copy convey.

Great Casual Jacket
This is a terrific casual jacket. It looks just as good with blue jeans as it does with khakis. Goes with almost any shirt. Lightweight and wrinkle resistant, although I'm not sure it would hold up well to being folded in a suitcase. The material is very distinctive. One of my favorite jackets
