1001 Black Men–#595


Lunch with my parents at Max’s Opera House Cafe was a lively affair. We were seated in the front section, close enough to see everyone who entered, but far enough away from the door to avoid getting a blast of chilly air with each new patron. We briefly made a game out of looking at the outfits of the entering customers and trying to figure out whether they were from the East Coast or California. My opinion of the man in this drawing? East Coast all the way. With his single-breasted khaki suit and olive green tie, he was dressed perfectly for summer in one of the original 13 colonies.
