By George

To follow up my post on the Buckley football game, I thought I'd post some more Life pictures I found another of my non-fashion heroes, George Plimpton.

The thing I like about both of these guys is how careless and relaxed they appear.  How uncool, and yet cool, they are.
There's a great picture of Buckley in the Life article I was talking about last time, where he is sitting in on a family all-night painting session.  It's on page 39.  His hair is a mess, his sleeves are rolled up, and he is totally absorbed in what he is doing.  Yet, for some reason, he looks like a great mess.

There is a certain self-confidence that comes through with both of these gentlemen that I hope to attain some day.
