Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

Chens really has lost loads of weight though and he's looking much trimmer and better than he did a year or so ago. And I liked his shirt.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

Quite enjoyable, for me it really came to life with the miles section. Maybe it was because of the music.  surprising is it me or was the collar on Richard press’s shirt way to big. It looked like you could get your fist in there. Now who sounds camp and bitchy? Poor man i keep going on about his hair or wig.

You've clearly never talked to Jim on the phone! x

Chens called my unfortunate accent 'especially charming'... But that was 4 years ago...

... Once, over lunch with Mr. Woofboxer, I mentioned how, when young, it had taken me ages to be taken seriously as a heterosexual. 'That would have been your demeanor' was his reply. I didn't argue.

These are the happy stories I shall tell my grandchildren...

I don't think he's trying to sound Bostonian, if he is it isn't working. Something about his speech pattern is annoying though. Like a sing song affectation and the waaay he elongates certain wooords. He also has that thing where he pronounces words ending in "ing" as "een"
And words that start with vowells like "Eighties" he says thuu instead of thee. Sounds very low class or uneducated.

I love listening for different regional accents since my failed radio days when I tried to lose my Lawn Guyland accent.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

Harvard you say, I don't believe anyone of them actually attended the university, let alone gave a presentation. Nearly all those people who commented on David Mercer's tie neglected to mention that the Hasty Pudding Club, is a a real Harvard Club tie from the early 1960s.  How much more Ivy does one want?  No offence intended to Richard Press about his Dartmouth days, but Chris Miller in his book about Dartmouth in the the same era does not mention wearing a suit, let alone needing three suits, three jackets, ten shirts and presumably a similar number of ties.  What he did specifically mention is that for graduation the student body all turned up in jackets and ties.  I think that says more about what the students actually wore. 

I was shown through one of the on campus student rooms at the Harvard Business School, and remember this for graduates at the Business School, you could not fit what Richard said was the norm for an Ivy League undergraduate in the space provided.  Students would have grabbed what they had clean and handy and wore that.  Not what was expected when the camera's were showing.  I remember seeing people posed for the camera of what they would carry in the field, and what they wore in reality after a couple of weeks.  A huge difference.

Suck it up Chenners!   You are what Asians refer to as 'talking 'cock', and it doesn't mean you do your best work on your knees.  'The buy American movement' and 'there may be a resurgence of Ivy into the mainstream' .  Really?  Many of the products sold by Brooks Brothers and J Press, even in their early days, were made overseas. Secondly, currently you can't find many undarted soft shoulder clothes in Brooks or in J Press, perhaps you never could.  Early Twentieth Century suits were certainly darted as it does flatter those with a trim 'V' shape figure, not the bag of shit shape it appears favoured by many middle aged balding Americans, who try and mix upscale and fail.

One does not neglect to wear a fucking jacket to a FIT museum opening, unless the shirt one wears is something sensational.  Chenners looks like some sad arsed failed writer serving drinks to supplement his meagre income.   He writes about failing standards, but the lack of jacket and being photographed posed playing 'pocket billiards' reveals how he can neither 'talk the talk' nor 'walk the walk'.  The HuffPost is better suited to this sort of poseur.

For the millionth time the suppression is/can be cut into the pattern of the jacket, ok Brooks did it maybe a touch less than others, but Press had it down to an art.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

I know the suppression  was cut into the Brooks Brothers Number one sack jackets, but most suits were darted even at the height of Ivy Style.  I have an Golden Fleece suit from the era, as well as a Harvey Freeman to compare, and Brooks Brothers certainly sold darted suits as well as sack suits a the time.

Click it, view it and see what it does to you. Then take the talking stick and tell the group what you feel.

I thought it was a good video, it looks a much more interesting exhibition than in the blog postings.

I thought there was a distinctive affected southern drawl at times on certain words that Chenners mouthed.

Goodfella (Chealsea Drug Store) reminds me of that boy who cried on YouTube about Britany Spears - Leave her alone !!!

Deeply Gay. Goodfella doesn't even engage with the subject of the blog anymore, just fawns over Chensvoid.

I am from California, but I picked up my accent hanging out with Charlie Davidson.  Everyone from Beantown will tell you I sound just like Jack Kennedy.

Except Jack Kennedy spoke with a South Boston Irish accent.  Zach, was Mr Chensvold an intern at the Andover Shop?

If we choose to dress like Eastern seaboard aristocrats, choosing to speak like them makes perfectly good sense.

I agree. Also, accents like clothing are reflective of status and aspiration towards status. As a bonus, the old prestige accents were and still are actually comprehensible too. But to understand that one at least has to have the urge not to be proud of being a guttersnipe, (or even a cockney rebel), as glamorous as that might appear to the unwashed and uneducated.

You see people like this total Neanderthal retard just don’t get it do they.
These clothes are worn because they are quality, classic maybe even fantastic. Not as an aspiration of upward mobility if that’s your reason for wearing them then they become a uniform or a costume and in reality you truly don’t love them..As someone born and raised in London I am still not sure of what is meant by a cockney rebel.Positive/Negative or People who like Steve Harley perhaps.
