With a Twinkle in His Eye

7

Belvedere Square at lunch time is a bustling and crowded place.

Among the hubbub, we spotted Mr. Clark sitting quietly at a table alone, eating his soup. He looked old-school cool in his hat and faded ski sweater and was more than happy to talk to us.

Herb Clark, 80, Belvedere Square

 

Hi. Do you come to Belvedere often?

I come almost everyday for lunch. Atwater’s and Ceriello are my favorites.

 

You look so natty. Tell me about what you’re wearing.

Jeans, ski sweater, and a hat. Same thing in summer but no sweater.

 

Do you ski?

Yes, in Aspen or Snowmass. In the summer, I golf.

 

I love your Derby hat. Sometimes called a Bowler right?

Yes. I got it at Sears.

Men used to wear Derbys to baseball games. Now all they wear are baseball

caps. I wear those too.

 

Are you married Herb?

Yes. Fifty-one years. 

 

And does she influence what you wear?

I’m 80 years old. My wife does not dress me. I know a man 

whose wife dresses him. Not for me!
