When Barry Switzer resigned as football coach at the University of Oklahoma in 1989, book publishers saw his story as the stuff of which best-selling autobiographies are made. As the Sooners' coach for 16 seasons, Switzer had felt the highs of three national championships and 12 Big Eight titles. He had also experienced, in late 1988 and early '89, the lows of NCAA probation and a variety of criminal charges involving his players.

Men are showing signs of renewed interest in "dressing" these days, and old-school tailors are breathing a collective sigh of relief. For this elite group, fewer torn jeans, baggy fits and Hawaiian shirts in the landscape means a better world. "There was a time I really thought about retiring and giving it all up because the old guys were disappearing," says Jack Taylor, the legendary Beverly Hills tailor who suited up the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Danny Thomas.

The familiar names roll off his tongue. But Jack Taylor is not speaking in the ordinary manner of the name dropper. Rather, these names serve as signposts guiding his thoughts back to a different era, a more dignified age, a time when being a "gentleman" meant something. "Cary Grant. One of the best-dressed men ever. He was easy. I knew what he wanted and nobody wore clothes as well as he did." "Harry Truman. I made him a couple of suits when he was president. The nicest man in the world."

An Austin (Tex.) jury essentially awarded no damages to journalist Jack Taylor Jr. in his $30-million libel lawsuit against former Oklahoma football Coach Barry Switzer. The jury awarded Taylor $95,000 and Switzer, who had countersued, $18,500 in exemplary damages. But because the jurors didn't award punitive damages in any of the charges, neither man apparently takes anything, according to their lawyers.
