    There’s a photo that GQ published a few years ago with Truman Capote at a dinner party at George Plimpton’s apartment.  It looks like it’s right out of Mad Men set.  I found the link.  It’s worth a gander, and it shows how much style everything had back then. athttp://jamiemalanowski.com/blogwp/2010/08/
