Who cares?

Who cares what he's wearing...he was gorgeous and could wear a sack and still look handsome!

Straight from the cleaners?

As some have said, the clothes may have been new, but they also could have come straight from the laundry.
This was in the day when dry cleaners, for an added price, folded and pinned men's shirts and then placed them in cardboard boxes for the customers. The slacks could have also come directly off of a dry cleaner's hanger.

I want it!

That lounge chair with the it.

Brand new clothes

Looks like Gary put them on right out of the packages.

The shirt

Brand new - straight from the package.

"Iron Man"

Gary Cooper played the great Lou Gehrig in "The Pride of the Yankees." It was one of my all time favorite baseball movies.

Mid century classic

Love the detailing on the on the flat roof fascia.
Any other pics of this house?

His maid

Had other pressing business.

Little brats

I doubt he would have given them until sundown, only until high noon.

New duds

Judging by the fold creases in both the shirt and trousers it looks like Mr. Cooper had never worn either before --- and probably never wore them again.


All right you little brats -- you've got until sundown to get off my lawn!

Ouch! My Eyes!

I don't know if black and white made him look taller, but it certainly made up for his choices in clothing colors.

Must be that hat

Funny, he looks taller in black and white.
