He was elegant in his style and taste. From my Bar Mitzvah Suit altered in 1962 to my relationship thru 1974 at a different location on Castor Avenue I only had fond authentic discussions...he was such a great guy and even now my tie and pocket handkerchief are still in my closet 55 years later. That explains "Retail" in a sentence. What a wonderful man....
