Two more pix from the Legend of the Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance. Top pic is Adolfo Orsi from Milan, who is touching a Brough Superior SS100! More importantly, his outfit; he told me it was bespoke, made from an old Milanese design, for motorcycling. Love the socks! Adolfo is a delightful character, who had flown from Italy just to attend/participate in the event; he is more regularly scene at automotive events (like the Concorso Villa d’Este)as an expert on Maseratis, as his family owned the brand for many years.

Lower pic shows Jared Zaugg, who with his wife Brooke Roner organized the Legends Concours, requiring two years in the planning, that was financially guaranteed with his personal credit cards! That’s commitment. He’s wearing a great vintage-y outfit with those spectator shoes, and looking pretty darn good for a guy who hadn’t slept in a couple of days. I’m wearing a vintage Dunhill coat, one of the few items of clothing I’ve bought on eBay, but being a judge at the event required a blue jacket and khaki slacks – standard Pebble Beach attire. A polka-dotted necktie is doing double-duty as my pocket square, which matches my ca. 1970 Sears polyester shirt. Yes!
