Charles F. Berg was for us teens, and Clothes House felt like grown-up world. There was a greeter at the door that offered to take your coat while you shopped. I miss the way Broadway used to be. Does anybody remember Hi Boards, and the back to school extravaganza that Meier&Frank used to have for fashion and Back To School in the 60s? Jean Shrimpton came one year care of Yardley!

I recall a lot of the sales and shops, but I was never allowed to even think of shopping in places like that.

The Clothes Horse sponsored Bob McAnulty's all-night jazz show on KLIQ-FM. It was the only ongoing sponsor. Bob did the spots live and he'd ramble on for three to five minutes once an hour. I suppose they got their money's worth.

If I remember right Earl Horntein owned The Clothes Horse. Dave Hornstein owned the Gay Blade.
