STORY

Chivalry with a Hint of Pipe Smoke.

t’s not that Harry Thaw wasn’t utterly mad—he was. It was just the kind of madness powerful families of the era covered up with the usual calamitous results.

I’m not saying Stanford White was innocent—he certainly wasn’t (see red velvet swing).  And I’m not saying Evelyn Nesbit wasn’t a victim—she was.

However, when a man (Thaw) saunters through the diffused haze of pipe smoke on the rooftop of Madison Square Garden and shoots another man (White) in the back of the head, declaring to all that he did it because the man had ruined his wife (Nesbit), one can conclude that chivalry, no matter how malformed, is not dead.

Perhaps Evelyn should have pursued that other relationship with the dashing cartoonist, the one similar to her in age who would go on to become the world’s greatest thespian. Perhaps both their lives would have been different. Better, even. Alas, there were too many dark forces at work. In the gilded age, decadence ruled. Innocence was its casualty.

Gilded Herringbone Suit Vest (No. 5473). 

100% Italian wool in a narrow herringbone pattern. Vertical watch button between the third and fourth buttons. Two welt pockets at waist, one at each side. Self-fabric back belt in black paisley print with metal buckle. Vest fully lined in black paisley. Imported.

Pairs well with The Gilded Herringbone Suit Jacket (No. 5456). and The Gilded Herringbone Suit Pants (No. 5464).
