Re: Sportswear

Also decided to resurrect this thread since it's one of my favourites on here. I only really wear Ivy for smart dress these days, usually with a tie. Much more into my loop collar shirts these days and if any Ivy influence is there its along the lines of the late 40s GI Bill or Dartmouth College of the late 40s/ Early 50s. But love my 1940s-1960s Sportswear.

That shawl "1920s coach jacket" looks interesting. The fabric maybe makes it look a bit too anachronistic though.

I've been after a shawl bomber-type jacket after seeing Waterhouse sporting a mighty fine olive one here:

I'm thinking it might be from a new designer/brand. Anybody have any inkling?

Golden Bear?

Wish I could find something similar to this or the one of the A1 style Varsity's

quite a few cool things there, has anybody here gotten stuff from them?  maybe Woolster?  glad to see they've expanded their line, I could dig some of their items in the right weather and situation ......

I haven't got anything from Dehen, but have heard only good things.

Tommy, what do you think about the CCC wool jacket from RMC?  I've been wanting to get one of these for a while now...

Re: Sportswear

I really liked this Golden Bear varsity, but not enough for the price tag.

I always find it difficult to understand why Real McCoys stuff is quite as expensive as it is. Buzz Rickson make many of there pieces to the equivalent quality, sometimes as much as half price. Or in terms of their leather jackets, you could get a custom made Goodwear for less (although you might have to wait over a year), or off the peg an Eastman?

That said there stuff is lovely, often spot on with accuracy and sometimes no one is reproducing the same piece.

I really like the CCC jacket, apart from the waistband.

Something else possibly for the mix, though they list these as 30s?

I think those look cheap, like the faux-vintage stuff companies like Homage put out... Besides, I have a particular hatred of "distressed" logos on anything...

got to agree, Ebbets makes some nice caps and knit vintage-style football jerseyyys but their sweatshirts and t-shirts are on the lame side in my opinion

but I like everything about that faux-fur zip-neck Wilma Rudolph warm-up you posted Tommy

Re: Sportswear

Got to say felt a bit queezy at those hoodies. ..maybe without the logos, I'm not sure. But I still am an Ebbets fan boy

Re: Sportswear

/\  I really like my San Francisco Seals cap from Ebbets, a birthday present from last year, their caps are fine .....

don't think they sell too many sweatshirts of the faux-retro variety but who knows?

but I'll wear their caps anytime

I don't think the Ebbets hoodie looks too bad, though it's not the quality of the LVC I have. There Sweatshirts look okay in the flesh, though I've never actually owned one tbh. I guess there strengths are Caps, Flannels, Jeresys and Varsity's though?

Re: Sportswear

Several hoodies, at least one a full-zip and at least one with graphics on the back, seen at the 1959 AAU Swimming and Diving Championships in Palm Beach:

Re: Sportswear

Going back to an earlier request, if anybody has any suggestions for a good 30s-early 50s all wool Varsity/ baseball style jacket, preferably button up, I'd be very interested?

does anybody actually like distressed logos on anything?  whoever thought that would be a good idea?  why do they persist?

which companies are doing good jobs with their t-shirts in your opinion Beebs?  I have a few places I buy from but I never buy hipster shirts, just regular college-bookstore-type old-school classic plain logo tees and then I distress them myself by wearing them .......

Stan, unfortunately I can't help you because I do the same thing... I have a few thrift store t-shirts ("Everybody Likes an Eager Beaver" from a trucking company is one) but most of mine are either blank or college or souvenir shop t-shirts... I'm always, always on the hunt for good graphic t-shirts but I'm endlessly frustrated... It's gotten to where I'm going to make some of my own designs and get them put on Comfort Colors t-shirts which are my favorite...

Anyone can get any old thing put on a t-shirt now, and most t-shirt websites out there are either full of "distressed" stuff (and I totally agree, I don't know how anyone likes the look of that stuff) or it's those websites with the hot models that have about 1000 mediocre designs related to pop culture...

I did find this t-shirt which I would kill for, but of course it hasn't been sold in forever, it's from No Mas but they're out of stock in everything last I checked...

https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0322/8725/products/Sports_Phone_tee_unfolded.png?v=1399562670

It's hard even to get a good team shirt now. I have a long sleeve Red Sox (HANG IN THERE SOX) shirt from Mitchell & Ness that I like with a nice classic, simple look but it's the exception to the rule at most places...

I actually got a free t-shirt from the new Duck Head as a promotion and it's very nice, I also have a Birdwell t-shirt that I like... There's also that company that does book covers, I forget their name now but I've always liked the look of those... Plus a shirt from my high school's baseball team, one and the classic college seal sweatshirt from my undergrad, and a few from Bowdoin... Gotta get some from old "Sapientia et Doctrina" now...

Plus a shirt from my high school's baseball team, one and the classic college seal sweatshirt from my undergrad, and a few from Bowdoin... Gotta get some from old "Sapientia et Doctrina" now...

I used to be an ace t-shirt thrifter, yesterday I was wearing a vintage TWA ringer tee by Screen Stars, that was $5 almost 20 years ago .... these days I don't have the patience or the time to thrift primary source places which is where the bargains are ...

I like t-shirts that are given to me, first because they're free, second because they're frequently random .....

expecting a couple of t-shirt presents soon, one I have an inkling about, could be a Longhorns tee if I'm lucky, the other will be swag from somewhere

picked up a cool red college logo tee recently from my summer "vacation," each new t-shirt becomes my favorite for a month or two and then goes into a long slow rotation

got a long list going, some from my fave blank shirt sellers, some from a range of sporting goods stores, few true vintage .....

two killer tees I waited for months on are now sadly gone, I waited too long ... one was a baseball tee, the other was a hiking tee ... c'est la vie

as I've written before, I like to hold out for random, free swag because I'm venerable and already have a zillion tees and I won't spend $30-$40 for a disposable graphic tee

pros wear free swag .... but only if it's completely lacking in cheese .... got to be cheese-free

I did spend $20 on my most recent red tee, but it was new, a souvenir of a memorable trip, and it was useful ....

I really have had some amazing t-shirts over the years, it's hard to give up on an old fave, but I bring one in for every one that has to go

I've got an old double hand-me-down freebie that's ready for retirement, but I'll let it finish out the year with dignity

I realize there are some people who disapprove of graphic t-shirts but they do their thing, I do mine, walk on

I also buy the occasional t-shirt to make family members laugh at inside jokes

the graphic t-shirt was worn in the Ivy '50s, was a big part of frat attire, was worn by soldiers, jocks, punks, hippies, greasers, bikers, pro athletes, and rock stars galore, and has been indispensable to pop attire since the early '60s

now the graphic t-shirt has been played to death by surf and skate and young designers and Urban Outfitters and their ilk but there's always a way around the strictly commercial stuff to get to what you like ....

got so many random t-shirts picked up for free or for pennies that something's got to be mighty spectacular to break into the starting lineup

the college t-shirts were much nicer back in the day, I can tell you that
