Michael --

I can give you an excerpt from a novel I have written about the sixties.
There is a fairly descriptive introduction in Chapter 2 about the lead
character getting dressed for classes.

Second, I dressed for success in the sixties (as a counter-culture fashion
statement), so I can tell you almost anything you want to know about sixties
fashion. I still have several pairs of bell-bottom blue jeans which I put on
for occasional sixties nostalgia parties.

What do you want to know?
