Bruce Boyer’s Gary Cooper Book Signing at Leffot

Last night a packed crowd of tailoring buffs compared suit shoulders and tie knots at Leffot, the West Village’s home for fine English shoes, to celebrate G. Bruce Boyer’s new book on Gary Cooper, which features an introduction by Ralph Lauren.

Boyer, a former contributor to Quest, based his book on over 100 never-before-seen snapshots provided by Cooper’s daughter, Maria Cooper-Janis (who was also present signing copies), wife of pianist Byron Janis.
