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?

There's only one place Chensvold picked that accent up, and that was in a trailer somewhere deep in the bayou where the alligators play.

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.

Thank you very much. The rest of the group answered right away without the stick - or is a cane more correct? Anyway.

I also enjoyed the video, it provides a lot more impressions than the pics which turned up so far.

Since I obviously I am a monkey in a suit on devil's island anyway, I might drop a comment on a certain accent as well. For me, as a a non-english native speaker, one of the speakers sounded like he picked up a fake English accent. I am not one to comment on people's accents, I think I sound like Rudolf Hess explaining the reasons behind his flight trip, but this also just sounds not natural either.

Through the magic of the internet, one can hear actual recordings of the voices of King George V, King Edward VIII (later The Duke of Windsor), and King George VI. Anyone who wishes to comment about “accents” might want to listen to their “accents”.
Some of the posts at FNB are enough to make one ashamed that some of their ancestors might have come from the UK. It’s almost like what Malcolm Muggeridge said in the Carnaby Street-Mod/Rocker era, “The British have stopped being Romans and have started to become Italians”.

As a history nerd i find this very interesting. As the Romans were inspired by and emulated all things Hellenic (Greece being the preceding superpower). There are direct comparisons between the ending of Pax Britannia (early twentieth century) and the beginning of pax Americana. Does Chenners and his cohorts see themselves as the noble torch holders of the Patrician classes of America who were thus inspired by the aristocracy of the British Empire? The accent of the aristocracy of great Britain was only ever used by a very small minority of British people.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

Definitely not, Chenners (we can no longer call him Chinny after his diet) chums have always had an anti-English bent. For all the usual reasons cited by Americans. But amongst this bile and hatred, there is quite possibly a chip on their shoulders for not having been born into the landed gentry of the old country. In short, jealousy.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

Hepcat there is truth in what you are saying.They just don't get though do they.The critique is not of Americans,how can it be.
This forum is about American clothes and in a wider context Americana.I think the ideological differences are about aspirations
and delusions of grandeur.I think British people just hate snobbery and i think that's what Chenners and his gang are all about.
I like these clothes because i like them it does not make me fell superior to anyone else.

I would have to agree with this.

I personally love American style and Americans and have spent far much more money in their country than I ever have with Mr. Simons. But it is purely about a love of style with me - A style I invest with a great deal of integrity... And it's the integrity issue that makes me question all the fakery that we get from 'Trads' and the likes of Mr. Chensvoid and his handfull of online followers. Why not just enjoy the clothes? Why the endless pretence of being that which you are not (badly)?

Clothes are clothes, schmutter, rags. So enjoy. The pretence that your taste in shirts ennobles you in any way is ludicous.

I am going to say “B” by default. If “A” removed that sweater from around his neck and was photographed more naturally I would have voted for him I think. Both are dressed better than most people that I encounter day to day.
I concur.
Moreover, as well as probably being able to spell ‘Ivy’ they are better dressed than some of the bizarre attempts at being well-dressed posted elsewhere.
There is one particular clothing forum, whose name escapes me that has some of the darnedest scoundrels imaginable cluttering up bandwidth with photographs of themselves in the most tasteless attire a Glaswegian garage mechanics on a Saturday night could imagine.

No, I'm not a mechanic, but I work with a few sometimes. Good guys, smart as whips mechanically. One of them is pretty well dressed too in a slightly hipster workwear sort of way. But hey ho, it beats being a prepster.


N.B. Preppies, if it's cold enough for a jacket and scarf, it's cold enough for socks!

On the right, Student B also channels old-school prepdom by actually holding together his boat shoes with a piece of duct tape.

That's obviously insulating electrical tape. More proof that Chensvold's way out of his depth here.

I just thought it was some advertising thing to try and bring some colour into the shot.  It's an advertisement, not some real life event.  Let's face it, it's obviously something a Truman Capote wannabe communications major from a third rate northern  Californian University, would regard as hip.

lol the guys on the left must be the darnedest scoundrels from the unnamed clothing forum.

An interesting point concerning spelling Sloane Square in Chelsea (as in his previous incarnation Chelsea Drugstore) has  an e.
Chelsea Drugstore was on the kings rd in the 70s/80s and Sloane sq is also on the kings rd.

Re: Pics from Ivy Style opening night party

Good one FXH. Very thoughtful of you to label everyone. It must make it so much easier when trying to visualize who each person in the photo represents in your fantasy Ivy gang bang. It must save valuable seconds when you're all squinty eyed and knocking one out over the thought of us.

I'd just like to say thank you for giving us an insight into your mind and your spank bank.

Hope you're well you pervy old weirdo.

Yes, I have to agree G.B, two excellent examples of 'SprezzaPreppy'. I'd like to see a follow up article on that very style, perhaps entitled "How to avoid SprezzaPreppy" or "SprezzaPreppy; The most stupid, inane fashion term ever written by anyone ever".
