STYLE INTO REBELLION | WILLIAM BURROUGHS & HIS STUFF

1985 | William Burroughs by Allen Ginsberg
From "Beat Memories: the photographs of Allen Ginsberg"

Dal 1966 al 1974 William Burroughs visse a Londra: abitava in Duke Street, nell'area di St James's, zona centrale nei pressi di Piccadilly.
Burroughs era un uomo di St James's in tutti i sensi; lo vedevi nelle sue bellissime scarpe fatte da John Lobb che aveva il negozio in St James Street. Scarpe su misura per il suo piede stranamente lungo e stretto. Lobb ne conservava la sua forma in legno fatta a mano. Poi aveva un bel fedora a tesa stretta e in estate indossava un panama Montecristi fatto da Locke's sempre in St James's.

From 1966 to 1974 William Burroughs lived in London. He took residency in Duke Street, St James's - a central London area nearby Piccadilly.
Bill (William Burroughs) was in every sense the St James's man, right down to his beautifully tooled shoes by John Lobb on St James Street, made to fits his unusually long thin feet. Lobb had his hand-carved wooden last on file. Bill had a neat small-brim fedora and wore a Montecristi panama from Locke's of St James's in the summer.

Poi Burroughs é tornato a New York e le cose sono cambiate.

And then, Burroughs came back to New York and things changed.
