Calling All the Young Fogies
#1
Quote:Looking into the life of a contemporary English writer, I happened upon a reference to the “young fogies” of 1980s England, an assortment of men then in their first decade or two of adult life who held to the most emphatic traditionalism in various cultural and aesthetic matters. Being not only of such inclinations myself, but a confirmed Anglophile and Europhile, I was immediately fascinated. There are few things which I will find more congenial than a group of males, who at the age I now find myself, were devoted to great literature, classic architecture, and tweed sport coats long after such things had ceased to be fashionable.
