The Southern California tourist season is almost over, but some spectators linger. The exclusive photograph (at left) shows a pair of Peal & Co. spectator or co-respondent shoes at full velocity. Note solid gold cuff action and tanned ankles. As you know co-respondents have a somewhat dodgy reputation, the name itself originally intended to refer to the type of shoes only a rogue male getting up to no good with a married woman would wear. I am not so sure the term applies to yours truly, at least not now. But more on that later. Today I like to think spectators have a bit of Old Hollywood cachet and I wear them accordingly. In the photo I am no doubt discussing Heidegger's theory of being and drinking J&B whisky, and plotting my sartorial conquests for next summer. Stay tuned.
