Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

At the moment I am watching "Wargames" with my students... Matthew Broderick, you know smile

5 minutes and I've seen two Ivy outfits - "Mr. Mc Kittrick", looks like mainly Brooks Brothers to me - classic flapped patch pocket sports sack coat, slim tartan tie, Tattersall (?) BD, sweater vest, no break cuffed flannel trousers... and some second guy in a 3-piece sack suit with OCBD and repp tie...

Oh, and a teacher, 3rd outfit: repp tie, 3/2 roll sports coat similar o McKittricks, OCBD, cardigan... and no break flannels smile

Ah...  I get it.  Keep a vigilante eye out to make sure there's no inappropriate groping going on in the dark.

I was rewatching Advise & Consent this morning... 2 hours and 20 minutes of wonderful shapeless 3/2 sack suits!

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

I was not expecting to see Tony Curtis wear beautiful Shetland crewneck sweaters in Sex and the Single Girl (1964) or in Don't Make Waves (1967), which features a particularly nice one in mid-blue with saddle shoulders.

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Just sat and watched Fedora. Not sure why, in fact I'm not even sure who recommended it?

In borders on the ridiculous at times, with a score to match.

Still, I thought Mr Holden looked quite snappy - barring the big-fuck off lapels, but it was the '70s.

Some lovely collar roll action going on too!

It seems that Drayton Sawyer was an O'Connell's customer.  Here he is is in madras sport coat, lisle polo shirt, and cotton bucket hat:

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

My Side of the Mountain (1969):

black and white buffalo-plaid heavy woolen overshirts, excellent camel-colored duffel coat with wooden toggles, yellow rain slicker, plaid flannel shirts   ....

okay the kid in the movie does wear some kind of deerskin tunic and that's not Ivy but besides that there are a lot of other good outdoorsy items to see .....

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

There's a sort of Take Ivy vibe to this scene in Akira (it's especially strong from the lad on the bottom right in the green jumper). No break at all at all.

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

actually he's a gray-haired middle-aged clothing enthusiast in black-and-white saddle shoes, vintage repro circular knit sweatshirt, and tapered Bedford cords ... they are looking at him strangely ... the pensive one in front wears a plain-collar pink oxford pullover with rounded hem and white jeans ... his little white booties fail to pass Ivy muster as does his incipient Anton Chigourh haircut ..... in the center is a girl with nice Princeton thigh socks, which have always been a "thing" there, and vacant eyes ... she clings to a kid whose fashion sense is 100% evil sensei from the Karate Kid ... one other kid shows a bit of promise with his surf-striped t-shirt but he is confusing highwaters with no-breaks ... all the little punkettes are cute, especially the one in the stirrup leggings .....

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Jerry Lewis in The Ladies Man (1961), an absurdly bad movie with great colors ... Jerry's name is Herbert Herbert Heebert ....

Clubmaster-type glasses, Jivey broadcloth buttondown popover with five or six buttons on the placket and a squared-flap bellows chest pocket ... .  High-waist gray slacks with belt loops and some kind of buckle adjusters, notched waistband, black and white saddle shoes. 

Jivey psuedo guayabera with squared bottom, Gabanero-type collar, double bellows chest pockets but good pale yellow color ... black pants, white socks, interesting black ankle mocs of some kind ...... Ronsir-type glasses with wire arms,

Tough guy shows up with very narrow tie and pinned club collar white shirt ....

back to the popover, it's thrilling to see buttondown collars in the movies even if it's on a mutant shirt. 

George Raft shows up in a notch-lapel tuxedo.

television producer wears a brown sack suit with open patch chest pocket 

red pullover crewneck sweater, cashmere because it's being worn as a jersey with no shirt underneath it (nasty), highwater gray gabardines, white and red saddle shoes with black soles, white socks.   

Jerry's in an ill-fitting shawl-collar tuxedo

TV announcer in great blue ocbd and black knit tie

shawl collared sweater on cameraman

Jerry invents the Saturday Night Fever disco dance right here!  Amazing.  Comes out of nowhere.

yellow sleeveless v-neck sweater with white shirt and gray trousers

light blue popover bd with square pocket, dark gray slacks with side buckle, white and black saddle shoes, white socks

odd gray sack 3-button with short side vents, narrow lapels, yellow sleeveless sweater, blue ocbd, burgundy bowtie (touch too large)

overall: huge amounts of Jivey, not much of the real.  The white/red saddle shoes were odd.  The whole movie is incredibly random. 

The New York Times review confirms:

"in all fairness to a frankly light-headed vehicle that dies on its feet, Mr. Lewis' latest gets off to a fresh and really funny beginning. And offhand, especially after those early bright moments, it would certainly sound as promising as any Lewis package in a long time.

Rallying around the star-director-producer are ...  Harry James and his band, and a whole boardinghouse of curvaeous girls. That's what the picture's about—Mr. Lewis as a lone, timid houseboy ....

As we say, things percolate amusingly at first. The very opening, a street scene in a nervous little hamlet called Milltown, is a riot. Some bright gags (involving the star's mother, a butterfly collection and a cat named Baby) pepper the comedian's typically bumbling entry into [a] pulchritudinnous, but eccentric, menagerie of cuties.

All told, it's a set-up for a Lewis film that's different. This also includes the main set, a fetchingly tinted, open-walled panorama of the boardinghouse.

But after half an hour it all folds like a tent. The remainder of the picture, with everyone else firmly relegated to the background, has Mr. Lewis shuffling and stumbling in full view, as if he and the movie were merely improvising."

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

At least the clothes kept you riveted.  How was Harry James sounding?  Big and brassy?  Cheesy arranging?  Decent female eye candy I'm sure.

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

It wasn't good enough to be riveting but when the boom years Jerry Lewis flicks come on I do check in on them because good clothing does appear now and then ....

I kept waiting for something good to come up like the Jack Purcells and rust-colored Harrington that he wore in 1963's Who's Minding the Store?, which was on a month or two ago.

Can't make a clear case for Jerry as an all-time hero of Ivy because he mixes in a lot of louche Jivey stuff but he does have his Ivy moments, clothes-wise.

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Since I was a kid I loved the story how Jerry Lewis put on a brand new pair of socks each day and refused to wash and wear used socks. Seemed to me as a kid to be the epitome of having wealth and being to indulge idiosyncrasies. Like changing into a fresh shirt after lunch. I have done that occasionally at work in summer. Feels refined or something.


To do: insert constantly changing witty, knowing and slightly ironic literary quote or reference.

That was why I never contributed to his telethon ... charity should have begun by taking that extra sock money he was spending and giving it to the Kids ....

I always had a sneaking suspicion that he was using some of the money that was being raised to buy more socks for himself ....

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

You don't see those Jerry Lewis (and Deano) movies anymore in the UK or Europe. They're great films IMCO.

Same with some the Elvis musicals - preppy Ivy style before the book was even written.

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

^ hep, most of the Jerry and Deano movies are on CANAL+ movie channels quite regularly and the joy of digital tv these days you can even select the english soundtrack versions ( at least once a year there's Jerry Lewis marathon on there a full weekend of the little fella ).

The Elvis movies are a different matter as their broadcast rights are all over the place - but the BBC4 is currently trying to put together a bunch for an Elvis season with documentaries.
