Mr. Brooks Brothers

images-5 He’s a little under 6 feet, slim, erect, well at least his posture anyway, preceding me in the early morning coffee line like a well-heeled West Point Cadet, getting his double latte and New York Times with daily precision.

He nods, rarely speaking, unless a day passes without me, then he’ll call across the room, “Where were you yesterday?”

“Working,” I’ll say, as he glides out the door.

I love how he dresses…his finely tailored suit pants with a crease that could carve ham…gray, more often navy blue, with a slim stripe winking, all beneath a muted green topcoat.  No hat, just a scarf billowing like an aviator’s…shoes so polished they light him as he strolls.

He wears Ben Franklin glasses that sit on his long, patrician nose creating a boundary so  not to see too deeply into big, brown basset hound eyes.

Is he handsome?  Hmm, not really, yet there is something awfully natty about him, not to be confused with naughty, since he wears a wedding band the width of a halo.

Kinda throws his outfit off a bit making you wish, why can’t they just make one in tweed…:)   images-2





About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

  1. I especially love a well dressed man. It’s so out of style in these “casual” days but give me a nice suit and I’m happy.

    I think there is something special about a guy in a well-tailored suit. Makes me want to know him. Rarely see anyone in a suit these days but there are the firemen in uniform I see almost every day. 🙂

    Wonder if he dresses himself? 😉

    Can’t deal with a man who dresses better than me. Too intimidating.

  5. Great dresser and manners? Oh damn that wedding band! I love that he noticed you had been missing. It’s lovely to know you’re not invisible.

    Susannah, that’s so nice and ‘human’ that he not only takes note of your absences, but inquires into your whereabouts. The Thin Girl does not escape notice.

    • For all good it does. And we must remember it’s right when they open so, there’s just me and him quite often. I always let him go first because he’s in a hurry. Joan of Arc just with coffee…:)
