Man finds suit he believes belonged to Paul Newman
“They wouldn’t have anything to do with the suit,” she said.
And especially fancy suits.
“Paul was notoriously underdressed,” Hotchner said. “As far as I remember he had one black sports coat and he had one suit.”
The down-to-earth actor who liked to race cars also had a tuxedo, but he burned it so he’d have an excuse not to attend any more black tie events, Hotchner said.
“Paul really didn’t want anything to do with any kind of dressing up,” Hotchner said. “He certainly wouldn’t have left any clothes in a building in New Haven.”
Newman’s daughter, Nell, also said she’s not sure why her father would have old clothes sitting around in New Haven, though she noted he briefly attended Yale University in the city.
