Years ago I met a clothier,
Wearing a pinstriped suit and vest;
“If it is not an English import,.
You are NOT wearing the best”!
He sold me Hickey-Freeman suits,
Branching out to Yves St. Laurent…
My everyday shirts, labeled I Zod;
My look, so au’currant.
I moved into the foothills,
Packing away my suit and vest…
Later finding Yves St. Laurent,
A designer’s posh rat’s nest.
I still can hear my stylist say…
“True fashion is about the cloth”.
My Hickey-Freeman suit is ruined,
Destroyed by a hungry wool moth.
