One of these things...

...Is NOT like the others...

I spotted this gentleman on a Manhattan bound A train in Brooklyn Friday night.

Chinos...running hat...reading a shop tote bag...Leftover pizza, still in the box, on the floor of the subway?

Before I accepted this as the new wave of preppy edginess, I asked the guy, "Can you PEY?"

He denied owning the pizza box; didn't even notice the leftovers.  Now...was his book so engrossing?  Perhaps as he took his seat, he was still floating on the afterglow of the tannins from the Malbec he had just swished.  Or the rich bouquet offered by that Pinot...

(K)Night of the Gentleman

Christopher Street, West Village
Devote: D-E-V-O-T-E.  I'm not sure how he made it sound so much like Walter.
He told me that he wore the headdress because he's a member of, 'Knights of the Gentlemen," just like King Arthur.  That's what he said.
