I’m on an Ossie Clark blogging kick. Here’s a famous 1968 photo of Ossie wearing his own shirt and patchwork belt with a sweater made by his mother.

Here’s a not-at-all-famous photo of me wearing my only Ossie Clark sweater. I’ve never managed to find a lot of his knitwear.

Nope, you can’t enlarge it.

    I sold one recently on my website, and it took about 5 minutes to sell! You’re welcome to post a pic if you’d like, they are so very rare! I’ve only got one myself, but it’s surprisingly sexy for a knitted piece. Hurrah for Ossie!! ;)

    Pretty sweater! Very Victorian looking. I also like the way you paired sassy red lipstick with the severe gray color.

    Ohh, I like that cleft in his chin. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever known a single person with one. He certainly looks sure of his intent in this photo.

    Whenever you write about Ossie Clark. I mistakenly think you’re writing about Ossie Davis, the character actor from several Spike Lee films

    Sorry for the confusion.
