The brown jacket with tartan lining.... yes please.  This thread is divine.

1941. Beautiful button-down. Are his cuffs turned up?

Maybe a short french cuff?  Hard to tell.

Re: Ivy the early years 30s & 40s

Look at the cuff button position on an old Brooks shirt..... they were designed to be turned back to avoid soiling, if you so desired.

Thanks for the input - if that's what he did here, it's kind of a cool fashion statement to buy long (those are pretty long sleeves) and turn them up. Something Astaire could pull off that no one else could.

Re: Ivy the early years 30s & 40s

At the Met Opera for "The Exterminating Angel" tonight. The only other Ivy-ish dresser there that I saw was an older gentleman wearing an OCBD with a 1940s-looking wide/short printed tie under an absolutely stunning 3/2 herringbone blue-gray tweed suit. Two on the cuff, cuffed trousers with suspender buttons and belt loops, high rise... He had a whole thing going with a fedora (not bad). We coincidentally ended up sitting next to each other. I asked him about the suit and he said it was made in 1939 in Toronto, and one of 2 almost identical Harris Tweed suits he bought at an estate sale years ago. He said the other one was more straight gray...

Anyway, we don't often see Ivy in the wild, but even rarer is Ivy the early years. This '39 3/2 suit with OCBD was a stunner.
