The Coats I've Checked is Larry Smirthwaite's coffee table book documenting his quarter-century in the coatchecking business. The book is heavy on his encounters with various celebrities, such as Harrison Ford (super-nice Ralph Lauren leather jacket), Andy Griffith (high-quality tweed), Hootie & The Blowfish (nice coats and good guys, except bassist Dean Felber, whose pocket contained something unspeakable), Jason Alexander (carries a carefully-pruned, vanilla bean car air freshener in his coat), and G.G. Allin, during Larry's brief stint at the Pyramid Club in NYC. Smirthwaite is still courting publishers. If you have any ins in the publishing world, contact him at
