Ben Hogan caps, bucket hats and satin ribbon D-ring belts. Pull out a navy blazer and a slim khaki poplin suit (guess dad is surfacing again). Throw in a bunch of color block sweaters, printed shirts, ties and belted gingham bikinis. Mix one good ol’boy, some Chivas Regal and David Hockney’s wardrobe. We played Sophie B. Hawkins “Damn – Wish I Was Your Lover” The TV hit Friends features David Schwimmer wearing a Gene Meyer tie in the opening credits.
Amy Spindler of the New York Times wrote – “If Holly Golightly had a brother Harold, he would be at Gene Meyer wearing silky spotted shorts in curious color combinations, 1950s style flat-front shiny trousers, boyish striped sweaters in washed hues, tiny swim shorts with belts and graphic shirts with boxes and dots – often with floppy fishing caps. It’s gentle eccentricity extended to silky boxers at the close of the show”.
