In Praise of Prints

http://www.tumblr.com/photo/1280/theweejun/17992663177/1/tumblr_lzogvdE9aR1rnste0

I've become a big fan of medallion and emblematic prints on shirts recently. Really all I wanted from starting a thread on them was to add to my collection of images of print shirts. And perhaps some help with searching on ebay and etsy. What key words pick up these shirts? I find terms like 'medallion' or emblematic' print rarely pull up good examples of what I am looking for.

Also, I take a 14.5 if any of you spot something that fits the bill....

Re: In Praise of Prints

Whilst not a fan of the cut of those shirts above, I'm a big fan of prints.

Out of those posted above, print wise, I like the one where he is holding the record sleeve best.

I don't think I've ever commented on the phenomenon of the pop over shirt.

If I have, I cannot remember doing so.

Yep that second one where he's holding the record is great. I'm with you on this Liam, I've been on the lookout for a while but with no joy. Really liked this one Zach had for sale a while back but it was too small for me.

Re: In Praise of Prints

The popover shirt with the guy holding the record is the shirt I was referring to really. Should have made that clearer. Im not such a fan of more fluid pattern prints, rather the geometric repeating type patterns are the ones that really interest me.

May have been, may have been..

Anyway, I'll say it now: I'm not a fan of the style.

...but the topic is 'In praise of prints' and I like prints very much. Abstracts, geometrics, floral...take your pick.

Liberty have a bewildering array of prints, including many by William Morris.

Yeah prints are my main interest in clothing I guess, I studied a lot of this type of thing at college and uni, I think it may have been where the bug bit

Re: In Praise of Prints

aye, pretty strong part, everything above there is vintage, popular on the film and tv stars of the time. I think LIam posted one from that comedy with the beatnik kid the other day, I think the actor had his own signature shirts, something I've seen a few times from that period.

Re: In Praise of Prints

The conservative thing was talked up on here and other places because it suited some people's tastes I think, ok you might not want to go crazy, but the important thing is the cut should be Ivy, and as mid century american clothing thrived on being bright with strong prints, I mean, it was the new fabric technology of the time!

.
A much wider range of clothing styles are discussed on this forum than was the case 2 or 3 years ago and I'm not overly enthused by the new trend.

Personally I'm still fixed on the Brook Bros type of style, largely conservative and understated. Small checks, stripes and plain colours are for me, I want to look 'smart' for want of a better word, but without standing out too much. Quality clothing and 'grown up' dressing .... with a twist.

Apart from the odd venture into madras during the summer months; loud colours, bold checks and patterns are not my idea of 'ivy'.  Neither do I want to look as though I've just come off shift at the local sawmill, so unless I'm actually going out into the countryside for a walk etc, workwear is not for me ..... just a hipster phase.

Boardshirts, trainers, baseball caps - come on guys this is kids stuff that is worn by the 'eternal teenagers'. The fact that's it a few years old and you bought it off Etsy doesn't change that fact.  How long before someone starts a hoodie thread?

You could say there's room for everything and all tastes, but at what point does the forum cease to be about ivy clothing?  Probably some time ago.

Yes, I think I may have mentioned this before. You have to stay focused, define the limits. It you spread to far you'll denude the word 'Ivy Style' of any meaning, the corollary of this however, is that you may find yourselves struggling for things to add or say as the subject becomes played out.

I'll vote for that.

Re: In Praise of Prints

I suppose it's more to do with the scope of age and interest on the site, I've a foot in each camp really, I'm not sure so much if it is age or taste, when I see someone young dress ultra-conservative I think it looks odd like becoming old before your time, when I see someone older try and dress very young like some of the Japanese guys, again I feel as though that's a bit over the top.

It does come down to individualism though and although the clothing has a broad range of styles and uses not every item holds up to being worn today by people of any age. To me boardshirts are practical and I like the look of them, I will always steer more towards 5 pockets than trousers, and I enjoy madras prints and bolder stripes, where the line is, isn't exact, Trainers, hoodies, casualwear is still fine for me, but it'd have to be the right style I suppose relatively simple stuff.

I think a lot of the interest in conservative style comes from a backlash to the ultra-casual shift of society, thing is I don't see the point on being reactionary if what I need to wear is casual. Maybe that could be from being round smart clothing all the time now, I appreciate the other side of things. I'm yet to own a baseball cap, but again, I wouldn't think someone had a problem if they did and it was like the Yale one Wooly listed. Again, you have to be comfortable with what you wear, if you feel it's not right for you, then don't wear it.

But I've had people tell me I don't understand the conservatism of modernism, (Mr. EUR) thing is, he has just edited history to suit his taste, he isn't modernism, just a a fan of parts of it. Be who you are, understand what looks best for you, and express yourself, Ivy gives us a wide palette to choose from.

It's the Jeet Kune Do of menswear, take what works, discard what doesn't, you'll be left with your own personal style.

Re: In Praise of Prints

Also WOof, did you post a photo of you in a batik style top, or have I just began to make up things in my head, that look good on you with your jeans. Not particularly conservate, also when you where you dark plaids under you sports jacket in my mind that's less conservative. I'm not trying to unpick what you said, I just remember seeing these things and thinking they were cool and worked on you, and I didn't see the outfit as looking conservative.
