George Frazier and Sprezzatura

Roger Angell has a nice piece at The New Yorker this week on the noted jazz critic and menswear write George Frazier. Frazier, if you’re unfamiliar, penned “The Art of Wearing Clothes,” which many consider to be one of the best essays on men’s clothing ever published. He’s seen above in one of my favorite photographs, wearing a button down collar, spotted tie, and Russell check jacket. If anything illustrates real sprezzatura, it’s this portrait.
