This week’s New York Times Magazine features a bunch of professors dressed up in really expensive clothing. Why? “These professors make academia look good,” was the explanation proffered.

Anyway, naturally this thing is called “Class Acts” and as you can imagine, it is wonderful. 

Plus, one of the models is Columbia’s own anthropology professor Michael Taussig (right), dressed to the nines in a dandyish Alexander McQueen cardigan.
