  1. What I liked most about this post was: the scenery, summer, t-shirts, untucked shirts, flip flops, sandals but probably most of all was Youth.

  2. September - sun beating down, dorm room windows wide open, everyone tanned and fresh from summer break getting acquainted/reacquainted, good not to be a freshman. Forever 19.

  3. Looks like Atlanta - the clothes! Not the art. :-)

  4. Thank you for settling an long-standing argument -- why are Yalies called "Eli"? For Elihu Yale, the merchant the university is named after. Now I can win at Trivial Pursuit! LOL!

  5. Let's hope that some of those clothes were purchased from J. Press.

  6. Generally, the young women look more elegant than the men.

    1. They're dressed at exactly the same level of casualness, and neither look "elegant."

  7. No matter how high the temperature is, I would never wear shorts and sandals in a museum.

  8. Unless they moved New Haven while I was on vacation, they are still wearing summer clothes, because it's still summer!

  9. Wearing shorts and sandals in a museum is like wearing them to a classical music concert or the opera: disrespectful.

  10. Maybe, just maybe those folk in sandals and shorts in the museum are not Americans but Europeans who escaped the Continent that has been overcrowded by "those" American tourists.

    1. Americans are so famously badly dressed on holiday that there's no reason to suspect the folk in sandals and shorts aren't American. Also, the precipitous and well-documented drop in European tourists since the Trump election suggests that probably none of them thought, "Yes, America may be becoming a quasi-fascist state under their new president, but surely we can ignore that and head straight to the museums of New Haven instead."

    2. They actually look like college students. I commend them on spending time in the museum and not vaping or eating Tide Pods.

  11. The Mellon collection. Just beautiful. Spent hours wandering and taking it in last summer.

  12. The 9th from the last photo at the bottom, with the guy in the long sleeve t-shirt, shorts, and coffee: I think this is a fantastic look in certain contexts. Running to the grocery store or to the farmer's market, out for coffee, etc...perfect outfit in the summer for that. Who can argue that he looks bad? Everything fits so well. I would actually like to know what shirt that is. Any ideas? I like the thick cotton that also seems to have a shape. And I agree, not suitable for a museum but for the aforementioned things, I'd say it's fine. Thoughts?
