As Seen on College Walk: Ladies and Gentlemen
Written by Bwog Staff
Ah, spring in New York. There’s something so nostalgic and old-fashioned about it all–afternoons in Central Park, evenings by Lincoln Center, students all over Low Steps at all hours of the day. . . This week, Bwog brings you some of the more dapper Columbians, all of whose sartorial ensembles seemed a tribute to Old New York.
What inspired your ensemble? I wear a hat for [personal reasons] and I just came from a business event downtown.
What’s your major? Poli sci, self-loathingly.
What’s the best class you’ve taken at Columbia? Shakespeare I with [James] Shapiro. I’m president of the Shakespeare Troupe, so it’s kind of a necesssary love [. . .] I’m directing Measure for Measure for April 29-May 1.
What’s your spring style inspiration? In general, I tend to like pretty classic things. I like neutrals and structure. This season I’m not inspired what I’ve been seeing, but, in general, I wear classic things and then dress them up with things like hats.
Where are you going? I’m coming from class and then going home before another class.
What’s your favorite dessert? Probably either chocolate soufflé, crème brûlée, or just baked fruit in the summer.
Where are you from originally? Manhattan. Greenwich Village.
What are you studying right now? I’m working on a book proposal for Sam Friedman’s book-writing seminar. [I write] narrative nonfiction.
Where are you going? I haven’t thought about that, actually.
What’s your spring style about? I don’t really change my style each season other than wearing lighter jackets. I’ve dressed like this for a long time. I have a tailor in India, [but] this wasn’t made by him. I think I like to dress this way because I don’t get that everyone wears shorts, young guys tend to dress like kids at the beach with their shirts off. . .
What’s your favorite dessert? Mint chocolate chip ice cream.
What are some interesting things you’re doing at work right now? We’re archiving websites. Collecting web content and archiving it.
What’s your spring style inspiration? Right now, the weather’s inspiring me tremendously. The way campus life just perks up is so inspiring. I’ve been here for many years.
Where are you going? Right now, I’m heading home.
What’s your favorite dessert? Bread pudding.
