Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

seeing the same people on a daily basis for years you really get to know people's style, it was interesting to follow ....

regarding Funky Chic, there was still some of that going around in the Carter years of the late '70s and it stayed around as punk gear during the Reagan era ..... 

but I only knew one kid who wore it, he was a doppelganger of White Album-era John Lennon, ultra-preppy Deadhead and one of the best-liked guys in school RIP

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

This was my era and the american style I still love the best. Blazers and SCs became more common with darts and side vents and were a little more fitted. Some BDs flirted with quite big collars and that's something I still think will resurface in the future.

A really nice way to check out some of the looks is to watch Cheers from the beginning. Not so much the main characters but some of the bar patrons and minor bit-parts. Sam Malone sort of played with the look (the whole sailing thing) but never really convinced. There was a dude who was sort of regular in the bar who had a great late 70s/early 80s prep/ivy mode. Blazers with check shirts and knitted ties and chinos etc.

Patrick is right about the chinos. US Surplus were rock solid but hard to get in UK in anything like 'normal' sizes. When the Levis 'Aviation Regulation' Chinos came on stream ('81) that was the business because they were widely available, a perfect cut and really well made from lovely thick cotton. Damn, I miss those pants!

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

the Levi's aviation chinos above look very cool, I would have bought them, but practically they just weren't around and nobody had them

Bean by the ton, Orvis too, Dickies yes, but not those, and Duck Head was not around either, apparently that was a Southern thing ....

Outside my New York-Connecticut-Massachusetts experience however maybe ....

but there was no significant military surplus clothing being worn at Yale in the late '70s/early '80s.

there were a few non-preppy kids who showed up with disco threads, but they were smart and quick studies every one and they jettisoned that stuff in a trice.

another trend that did not thrive in the Bean years at the campuses of the Northeast was the cowboy boot craze brought on by Dallas. 

as I have mentioned before, I wore Levi's jackets, pocket t-shirts, Brooks lambswool v-necks from England, J. Press plain-collar flap-pocket old Viyella shirts from England, khakis from Bean and Orvis, Lincoln green chinos from Dickies, Co-Op blucher mocs from Maine, Sperry canvas deck shoes in off-white and in faded navy, Jack Purcells in off-white and in black, and Tretorn Nylites, among many other tennis shoes as I was and remain a sneaker freak. 

the ocbds ... mainly got worn in the first two weeks after returning from vacation, when I had a freshly laundered supply ....

otherwise, in the event I needed a fresh ocbd, the path of least resistance was to charge a new one at Press for $22.

It was the success of these pants that led to Levi's creating the Dockers brand in 1986
Every so often Dockers do a K-1 reissue ,
my last pair (from 2012) came in a Dockers branded 'clip top' ammunition case, with a certificate of authenticity and metal compass on a chain ( intended to go in the little watch pocket under the waistband), A whopping 12.5" front rise, 17" back rise, very full legs  and a 9.5" hem on the 34W:D

Had a couple of pairs of the Dockers K1 in the ''cramerton military cloth' from TK Maxx .... quite pleased with them.

I may be casting a broad net, but those students who wore military jackets typically never served and were the least likely to adapt to any sort of discipline, military or otherwise.

forgot to say thanks Farrago ... I was not the most disciplined kid there but I was not the worst ... freshman year was a little wild ..... senior too ....
