The Power of a Vest

Jp Magazine - - Sideways -

We’d like to say this photo is about more than a man and his hat and his vest. But it’s not. Sure, there’s a Jeep in the back­ground (oh, you hadn’t no­ticed it at first ei­ther?), but this is about style. OK, we’ll call it Jeep style. Brian Kessler sent this pic in of his fa­ther, Richard. “I know this is a drive­way shot,” Brian be­gan. Brian, please. Man.

Hat. Vest. Jeep. No apolo­gies needed. “The photo was taken at our house in Laramie, Wy­oming, July 4, 1968,” when Brian was al­most 4 years old, he said. The Jeep was an early-50s Willys wagon that “had re­ally bad brakes. I re­mem­ber my mom run­ning into the garage door com­ing home from gro­cery shop­ping when I was around 6.” We’re not en­tirely sure it wasn’t be­cause she fell un­der the spell of Man. Hat. Vest.
