Re: Ivy League style for today

That's a beaut, YI. Is it a 3/2 or is it a straight 3-button?

Re: Ivy League style for today

Thanks guys, nice to hear smile It might be the best fitting jacket in my closet. I was a little worried that the color would be a bit dated and too bright.  But it's a great olive color, works fantastic with a pair of dark jeans. It's a 3/2, Pennies.

Stan - I agree about the cable knit sweater. Feels like I rarely see one when looking at old pictures, were they commonly worn?

Young, they (cable sweaters) were around for sure, though they were never the market leaders, always secondary to plain Shetlands, but you'll see them in the 1961 J. Press catalog and elsewhere .......... people wore them ... men and women

Cable-knit Shetlands are in the OPH too. (And Arran sweaters, for those still interested in that conversation)...

YI, beautiful jacket. Agreed about the cable knit - the texture adds something key to the outfit, I think. Beautiful jacket, as all have said...

Re: Ivy League style for today

Recently got hold of a Southwick brown herringbone sack and I'm tempted to say that at their boom they were on a par with Brooks (shoulder wears nicely even before hanging up for a while).

I'm beginning to move away from the slimmer cut of the 60s towards the wider lapelled jackets and less tapered trouser legged look of the late 50s. Increasingly finding the less harsher cut more appealing somehow.

Worn with a brooks pullover.

That is a lovely shoulder line Colin, you are very discerning with your vintage purchases.

Thanks, Woof. It's taken many years to find it - I started searching the same time I got the grey herringbone off you all those years ago.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Finally some weather that speaks my language.

Old Brooks jacket, new LL Bean OCBD (its days as anything but an around-the-house shirt are numbered, it's soon to be replaced by a Mercer), c-buckle belt, Land's End traditional fit Lighthouse chinos ("cuffs, even now" - the OPH), and a beautiful Briar tie - all wool, woven in England, "Made Especially For Lobo Men's Shop Albuquerque" (one of several ties I own which were bought by my grandfather, who was born in Clovis, went to UNM - Go Lobos - and ended up as a banker in Albuquerque).

Excellent! New Mexico is a beautiful state... I've been making a trip out there every year for as long as I can remember... My great-grandfather went there straight from Germany, he owned a general store and several ranches in Fort Sumner... My grandfather told stories of taking the train from NM to NYC as a kid, bringing furs from New Mexico to relatives in the Big Apple... And to California when it was all still orange trees...

How do you,or anyone else, find the current Bean OCBD? How's the roll? I'm tempted to buy on the basis of not being able to find a decent roll OCBD in UK for a similar price..

I find them... not terrible. The roll is okay - what you see in my pics is pretty much all you're going to get. They're pretty thick, much thicker even than my cotton/poly blend vintage Bean shirts, so I can really only wear them in fall/winter; they're all treated to be non-iron.

That said, the collars are long enough to cover a tie, even if they aren't as long as I'd like, and that's rare enough these days.

Re. OCBDs for shlumping around the house - I have to throw my hat in for Lands End Sail Rigger Oxfords. Untreated, and dead cheap more often than not, as LE has sales seemingly weekly.

Funny, I just gave my last one of these to my girlfriend, she wants to do some DIY projects that involve cutting the collars off of things... I agree, they're very comfortable, and yes LE is the place for deals... Just about no roll though. Such are the times we live in. I love my LE chinos though, not sure if they still make the Lighthouse chinos but I love them, and I love that LE lets you choose custom inseams and cuffs even on their cheaper trousers, LL Bean could take a few tips from them.
