Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

http://www.ivy-style.com/ivy-style-open … party.html
Let me be the first to say:

Chenners @#&$#@@ ! CC%@#$&$#@%@&% ! They look like @$#@%&$@#! and Chinny Chins looks like #@$%&%#@$ !

But Jason Jules looks good.

The forced smile on Richard Press says it all really.  Loved the 1920s outfits though.

And we know now what David Mercer looks like. A nice knitted tie, right up my street that.

There's something about a striped knitted tie isn't there? Not quite eccentric, but marks you as an individual in tune with the boom period.

I know Chens goes on about the Norway connection, but I'm beginning to see the islander in him.

Aren’t we all love! Unfortunately time stands still for no man and i for one think becoming a “silver Fox” with grace and style is one of the few advantages age has over youth.

LOL Just found an interesting fact regarding this Jim. I must tell the wife as she’s one of your lot.

Comparing those shots with the JS Hollywood book launch, the two different interpretations of the look  become quite apparent. I'll be sticking with Limey-Ivy.

I like the look worn by Sean Crowley, although he is 'tie'd' in with the dreaded R.L.

As the forums recognized wig spotting authority I ... am not sure. I would need to see more photos. Could be a rug, could be a bad comb over. Definitely a bad dye job if it is his hair.

On second look I'd say bad wig.

Then he should have gone for an 'Ivy' syrup, like Bob Newhart - crew cut with a widow's peak maybe for the NASA look.

From The_Slacker "Comparing those shots with the JS Hollywood book launch, the two different interpretations of the look  become quite apparent. I'll be sticking with Limey-Ivy."

I agree entirely and this is supported by the book.  I guess we bring a different sensibility to it in the UK, less academic and rooted in USA society and more stimulated by aspects of popular culture.  Of course many might quite rightly disagree if their inspiration is different but I can only speak personally and observe similar inclinations here.

There's a whole layer that doesn't connect with me in USA Ivy style which rather than being a 'radical conformist' makes me feel like a 'subversive unconformist'.  I enjoy this aspect and ask myself 'if Ivy Style had remained the preserve of the universities and old money origins would I be interested in it?' and the answer is definitely not.   It's the links through jazz, film, modernism etc that stimulate me as a palette for progression by those who aren't born to it.   I don't pretend any credibility through association with the style or have a desire to brush with those others would have perceived above me in society, I'm happy to make my own way.   

In a small pocket book somehow this came across intuitively in 'The Ivy Look' but the 'Ivy Style' book while excellent is a different ethos, it's the source that Marsh, Gaul, John Simons and our own Jim drew from and which has grown from this central stem into an interesting new branch of its own.   It is a purely stylistic evolution not one that is concerned on the whole with the wider social aspects and this liberates it to become something distinct.   The 'Ivy Style' book is interesting as history not as guide.

This is just one man's opinion, I'm Ron Burgundy.  Stay classy Ivy Stylists

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

I think Zach sometimes appears to be fed up with this battle of authenticity, and I'm beginning to feel the same it's really just noise, a sideshow. These guys in New York are caught up in the zeitgeist, and we here are probably no different but with a different ideal. I think it is all by the by, and just becomes about bolstering yourself, more than the clothes themselves.

The only person I see that is really being authentic, imaginative and remaining current is Oliver, but you don't hear mission statements out the guy, where as Mark is blowing hot air, and then talking about the relative quality of TM Lewin buttondowns, I've had a few TM shirts, and they're rubbish, and for the same price you can pick up a Makers on etsy with still more than enough life let in it.

I'm just seeing a lot of BS going on here.

PS. Chens would've been a nob in whatever interest he undertook.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

My Grandfather's Pants - I can only be who I am, precious and all.   We're all here to put up views and discuss them, so I do.   With Jim gone for now I thought it was worth stimulating a bit of discussion. 

Slitting your throat might be a bit over the top and there's good people here in the forum who do it for free if you need it.   

Love the 'tache.   Movember soon everyone.   Not sure if there is an 'Ivy facial hair' thread in the archives
