The Resume

Why he might be annoying

    He was branded a hustler and celebrity hanger-on.
    He was a perfectionist.
    His nightclub, Slapsie Maxie's, was funded by mob boss Mickey Cohen.
    He partied while his brother Al took care of the store's business dealings.

Why he might not be annoying

    He dressed presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson.
    He created the 1960s 'cool' swagger with skinny ties, uncuffed trousers, sharkskin suits and tailored dress shirts.
    He made several silk mohair eye patches for Sammy Davis, Jr. after he lost an eye in a traffic accident in the 1950s.
    Bob Hope stated, 'In a good year, I have my choice between a Rolls-Royce, a new house in Beverly Hills or a suit by Sy Devore.'
