Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

Ha! I actually just saw the guy the other day, he told me that the sweater was indeed Bean... Everyone took their photos for the yearbook the week they were due in March, hence the one-season look of the Colby pics big_smile

I love that guy, the chamois shirt under the Norwegian sweater with the mittens and balaclava is an incredible look... to be admired from a safe distance...

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

Bean lounger boots aahhhh ... between the Alden workboot (Indy boot) and the Bean 7" lounger pull-on boots, Harrison Ford really could pick some rugged prep shoes

but I'm still not flying with him in his Cessna and I don't know a nice way to get him to stop asking me, any suggestions?

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

What is it with these people and flying? At least he flies normal person-sized planes, not like Travolta...

He can pull off a pair of loafers, too... He wears a pretty nice tan suit/striped tie/loafers combo in Witness but I can't find a pic at the moment...

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

That trucker jacket is just for you stan... Despite getting many mentions from you here as essential late 70s prep, the thread has almost no trucker jackets... I actually have my eye on a point blanket-lined one from Schaefer for this winter... made in USA of course...

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

wonderful shots Beebs, right in my comfort zone, I would have fit in well at both of those places I think, those kids were wearing my college style, I was them and they were me .....

the kid in the Fair Isle bobble cap, Lee trucker jacket over the lightweight down jacket over a Shetland over an ocbd: that dude knew how to layer the rugged prep like a champ ....

the moustachioed D-Day-looking Animal House-type guy with the knit cap, scarf, down vest, and Bean Norwegian sweater .....

the kid eating a picnic lunch on the beach while wearing a chunky knit ski cap, jeans, and an Icelandic yoke sweater .....

so hard to pick a fave from all those beautiful sweater shots but one shot stands out, obviously:

Gucci bit loafers can go straight to hell, though.

the Gucci bit loafer gaffe was where the OPH jumped the shark ... to all true preps Gucci was an even bigger joke than Louis Vuitton ....

omitting the Andover Shop could be considered an oversight albeit a serious one but including the Gucci bit loafers was a mistake, plain and simple .....

everything else on that infamous shoe list was spot-on ....

actually, in my opinion, the opera pumps with their little bow were always a touch too much, as AC/DC would say .......

these observations of mine are not theories by the way ..........

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

I agree about the opera pumps... The moccasin duck boot is and has been on my wish list for a long time, maybe this coming spring I'll pull the trigger on it...

Kind of surprised that the OPH would lump penny loafer Weejuns together with tassel loafers, though... A "decrepit" penny loafer with tape around it is very different from a "decrepit" tassel loafer with tape around it... I really do see well-shined tassel loafers as going hand-in-hand with wingtips as the classic dress shoe - while pennies have always been more casual...?

Shame about the top half, that humourless dead inside editorial style of mens fashion..Most of those models look like they're on the edge of an existential crisis than wanting go out and enjoy the great outdoors. So much BS in men's fashion at the mo and really for fucking ages now. Urgh.

The guy on the left looks like he's just been berated by his dad for having his lunch money stolen from him by the bigger boys at school, yet he appears to be well into his 20s

this was a nice shot of daypacks and rucksacks, I'd use all this stuff:

http://78.media.tumblr.com/8a2cbb5d09b5f2a7291db49eb81d7b24/tumblr_inline_ox0w1icn3g1qfex1b_500.jpg

Beebs, I recall seeing some yoke-shoulder stuff here and there back in the day but I never had any, but in any event it wasn't prep, it was '70s-'80s Western Americana, as you know ....

I always liked down vests abstractly, they were so wrong they went full-circle and ultimately looked cool to me, but I only ever had the full down jacket when it got to be cold enough for down ....

eventually I acclimated to the weather and was able to get through major parts of many winters with Levi's cord trucker jackets and blanket-lined denim jackets, which were Western in their own right.
