Robert Jaffe, a VP at Cohmad Securities who hooked up Palm Beach socialites to Bernie Madoff's awesome investment scheme, was a fashionable gentleman—"at one time named [high-end clothier] Louis Boston’s best customer," reports WWD. Now?

Jaffe's been subpoenaed—"investigators want to determine how much Jaffe knew of Madoff’s investment practices and whether he recklessly steered his clients to the alleged swindler."

What would Louis Boston, then, suggest wearing to the hearing? We'd suggest a tweed jacket and colorful neckery. It's always better to draw attention to the face—unless, of course, you're lying. In that case, go with snappy leather wingtips.
