an evening with frank dileo

last night i had the pleasure of attending an open forum with 4 of the gentlemen that helped form michael jackson’s career.  it was an incredible evening to hear them tell stories about the late king of pop.

frank dileo (above) – who managed michael during the 80’s – is a cool cat.  he was sporting a double breasted blazer with jeans and chewing on a cigar.  the real kicker though was his shoes and socks.  in what may have been a tribute to michael, dileo had on black penny loafers with white socks.  it was definitely the first thing i noticed.  i’m not saying that frank was impeccably dressed, but when you have as much confidence as he has then you can wear whatever the hell you want.

here’s a picture of one pair of jackson’s loafers:
