Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

don't focus on Bruce's regrettable lack of ocbd, just look at the soft shoulders of his sport coat  ... and on the "coincidence" that Blanche Tyler and Worried Man own the same wig ......

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Hahaha.  I actually can't recall who that wig belonged to.  It wasn't mine.  I think that makes the second WM wig pic of the forum.  The other was the Velma wig.

But yes... that looks like a good jacket.

here's one of the best Velmas I've seen so far ... that's Velma from Scooby Doo = Hanna-Barbera's biggest production = Joe Barbera, esteemed wearer of Ivy .....

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Watched Shattered Glass (2003) the other night, a true story about a young journalist on a Washington based news magazine who was found to have fabricated many of his articles. Not the most exciting film, but some excellent ivy action; like flicking through a 1990s Brooks catalogue. I recognised several of my own shirts!

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Annie Wilkes, psychopathic ex-maternity nurse and romance novel fan played by Kathy Bates in Misery, wears penny loafers. 

Really wrong.

Joe Don Baker doppelganger.

Couldn't find a pic but she's wearing them in the scene from which this still was taken and when she gets out of the truck you see the penny loafers crunching in the snow:

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

^
And a jolly good film to boot ! Bit of an ivy style theme running through Stephen King's works (or at at least their film adaptations)? - not sure whether they're overtly mentioned in the stories or the directors just add those touches to suggest that the character is a bit unstable? lol ETA - Just as I posted that - the theme from 'The Shining' came on my itunes ....... spooky  !!!!!

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Just reminded by the madras trousers on the vaguely rude sounding 'howardyount' site - Alec Baldwin sports American tourist ivy in the very brilliant 'Miami Blues' - one of my favourite actors in one of the best and funniest movies of the early 90's .... ' 'Real badge, real gun - fake cop' cool

Thomas Crown Affair (1968) has some great stuff including some great Ivy style by the customers in the lift.

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Sunday in New York (1963) with Jane Fonda, a dated period comedy of sexual mores .....

so much good midcentury style from start to finish

here the guy pursuing Jane Fonda, who is at her absolute best in this flick, incredibly stunning, wears a buttondown collar but its buttons are too widely spaced to be legit, narrowish solid tie, 3/2 Hollywood (almost natural) shoulder sack (or do I see faint darts?), with short center vent and open patch pockets, flat-front uncuffed trousers, black Peal loafers, black leather belt .....

why the people in charge of wardrobe didn't use a regular old Brooks Brothers buttondown is hard to fathom ......

he wears his tie tucked into the front of his trousers ... it's odd ......

Cliff Robertson and Jim Backus wear undistinguished plain collared shirts with their sacks ......

two buttons on everybody's coat sleeves even though the suits are hybrid Hollywood Mock Ivy

Jane is just the hottest in this flick .... that is one good-looking family

Central Park, ice-skating at Rockefeller Center, TWA terminal at LAX which is supposed to be Idlewild here .... all the furniture, glassware, automobiles on the street .....

redhead Jane orders cinnamon toast ... she's a true Cinnamon Girl

this is a beautifully shot film but the characters keep talking earnestly which is a drag because more Jane would have been preferable to Rod Taylor's theorizing .....

now Robert Culp steps in in a belted Burberry trenchcoat and it does look good ... double-breasted blue blazer with crest (worn open generally), tie bar, choking tab collar, narrow red repp tie, lush gray flannels ... his shirts have multiple vertical buttons on their barrel cuffs ....

in a later scene he's back with a black knit narrow tie and another tab collar and a silver tie clip shaped like a Derringer

he calls Jane "you little monkey" which is funny because she has always put me in mind of The Monkey from Portnoy's Complaint the novel and I was thinking that she looks like the best kind of simian imaginable and then he calls her a little monkey ... bingo ......

a white canvas Converse All-Star-type sneaker plays a small but salient supporting role.

Jim Backus is there too and his pleated trousers accentuate his character's middle-agedness

the Peter Nero Quartet appears ..... Nero himself wears a small spread collar shirt

classic example of ocbd frustration .... all the male characters would have looked so much better with the ocbd but the film goes for more urbanity with plain, spread and tab collars which look more pedestrian than sophisticated to me ....

this flick does not inspire me to wear the tab collar ... that choked-off look is maximally uptight ......

some nice blue broadcloth pajamas are worn by Rod Taylor .....

Jane's little thin arms are driving me berserk ......

black leather Eames armchair in the apartment looks killer, that chair always did ......

http://www.nytimes.com/movie/review?res … I%3A10%22}

"... the actors are all attractive, and so long as one can go along with them in their valiant attempts at pretending this is hot stuff, one may have a good time."

"Jane Fonda is appropriately pretty, girlish and romantically naive to give a beguiling portrayal of the girl from Albany ...."

"Let's just say that Peter Tewksbury's direction makes the whole thing move like clockwork on the screen, where it is done in delicious Metrocolor, and that, naturally, no one gets hurt."

Re: Unexpected Ivy in movies

Your astute synopsis probably more entertaining than the movie?

Haven't seen this one.  I like me some Jane though.  It's on the short list.

Watched "And the beat goes on" this sunday on some true movie channel on SKY

Sonny Bono was wearing a cracking half sleeve button down popover in the early part of the movie

great movie, Chuck, Charles Willeford wrote some brilliant hardboiled noir ... this is Alec Baldwin's best role and also best collar roll ... and nice C-shaped belt buckle too ...

pants and sport coat are in classic Caddyshack psycho country-club dork preppy mode ... even though Junior stole those clothes from the airport, and they weren't things he bought,  they suit him, and he's very sociopathic

Good stills there Randy.  I'm not sure how keen I am on the Yumas.  Never really been drawn to them.

I'm surprised. They're such an icon among ivy enthusiasts.

Yumas reminded me of Night Of The Living Dead, a fine movie chock full of NatSho clobber.
