Re: Ivy League style for today

That dinner line up sounds very impressive Coolidge, we must have a photo please.

I've never worn a jacket with tails, I'm saving that for when I receive my knighthood for services to Ivy style.

There is always a photographer and they usually photograph the younger people so I'm sure there wlll be one. 

While it obviously is physically different, I've never noticed anything different "feeling" about wearing tails. The stiffness of the shirt and collar are the bigger difference.

Re: Ivy League style for today

earlier today:

Brooks Brothers alternating blue striped broadcloth point collar shirt, sleeves rolled, very nice soft shirt, red and white label 
slate-blue tropical worsted trousers of H. Lesser cloth , flat-front, 1½" cuffs
Alden light-brown leisure handsewn moccasins
brown leather C-buckle belt
gray soft cotton socks

was 85F degrees outside, no jacket required today

not tweed weather but now it's around 78F so it feels relatively cool to me

I get to wear my trusty old winter sweaters four or five days a year so my winter Ivy is still Tropical Ivy but it's strange to wear poplin in the winter even when it's hot out

this is when the tropical worsteds at least nod to the seasons but any heavier is too much for this latitude     

now:

blue cotton Adidas sweatshorts
long-sleeved dark green cotton t-shirt

so happy to be barefoot again

Re: Ivy League style for today

85, huh? 29 here, supposedly feels 18, but I spent about 5 minutes out today. Only had to pick up some Triscuits and Shredded Wheat, a monotone grocery list which I now realize seeing it in print.

Flannel lined jeans and a gray Jamieson's Shetland over a "Lincoln-Hamlin 1860" long-sleeved tee.

What, no silk scarf? Go f*** yourself. Seriously, though, while at the opera I was trying to think of what white tie occasions are really left, for peasants like myself anyway... Good on you for dragging out the whole kit and kaboodle... I think black tie should be more regularly worn in the evening, which of course opens up white tie for a few of the occasions that now only require black tie...

Love that herringbone, beautiful color... What size shirt is that? When it finally dies, feel free to send it my way wink

Re: Ivy League style for today

Are you worried it's not cooked in the middle? Isn't it a 'Scotch' egg?

Nice pairing of the cord jacket and fairisle knit.

A lot of these fancy new makers appear to be adopting this whole running egg middle now that salmonella isn't such a looming threat.

The soft yolk is the best, I miss scotch eggs. Loving the cord/oxford/fairisle combo, looks cracking.

HAHA!

Don't need the gloves really ever again probably but can't imagine throwing them out.

The top hat is sometimes fun if the context is right--but it wasn't right on Friday.

They're all over eBay last time I looked... It's thin but very warm, which is great. Lots of protection without looking like George Costanza in his Gore-Tex coat...
