Flashback Friday: Retro Tennis

Flashback: last summer I took up Friday tennis.  I justified getting my butt up at 8 am on a Friday morning by the opportunity it gave me to catch up with my girlfriends.  Shop talk.  Of course it didn’t bother me that each week came an hour of working it out with a slightly disheveled, English, adorable, hyper-realist painter-slash-tennis-pro as well, but, like most things, I did it for the fashion. Carl Kleiner’s vision of Retro Tennis seen at left comes to mind for McCarren Country Club’s Spring Fashion Forecast.  Gentleman, see you looking your finest on the courts.
