It's A Man's Man's World

Author, agitator, fugitive....and fashion designer. Eldridge Cleaver's engagement with the fashion houses of Paris in the mid-70's was short but spectacular. No doubt there was some polemical underpinning to this radical innovation in menswear, but it couldn't be anything but eclipsed by their visual impact.

"Polemical" -- buh duhm bump!

Cleaver...jezum craw. Haven't given him any thought in a herd of donkey's years. Opinion in some conspiracy-minded circles used to have it that he was a CIA plant.

More specifically, a CIA carrot!
