For instance, eblazoned across the chest of Joseph Cassano at a lawn party in Belle Haven. The head of AIG Financial Products lovingly paired his ‘ironic’ t-shirt (oh there are hipsters everywhere these days!) with a darling indigo blazer and even incorporated a coy little kerchief poking out of his pocket. Is the mojito a sly nod to Che’s latin roots? Or just a delicious and necessary cocktail for the tough day of yachting those pants and belt imply happened earlier in the day. Perhaps I’m taking the “a picture is worth a thousand words” phrase a little too literally. Le sigh. I guess I’ll never know what Mr. Cassano was thinking when he put this tour de force of fashion on. But it’s nice to know that the Che t-shirt is there in his closet to remind him of why he got into financial products in the first place! And perhaps that T-shirt will comfort him if AIG ends up having to return all the bonuses they doled out. Only time will tell.
