.. and if you removed the jacket, he would dressed head to toe in beige. It's a shame Oliver's not paying attention anymore.

Carl Sagan was no ordinary human.

Hence him being able to survive on Mars (not the moon, I don't think he ever went to the moon) or in Deep Space.

Are you mentally undressing Carl Sagan, Woof?

Thank you stan for returning Carl to decency... Any more Carl Sagan-related matter should be directed to the Cool Pic thread, as that is what it undoubtedly is...

Outstanding work ZarJazz... Would never have chosen that tie but it looks excellent, amazing suit as well... And always great to see some love for the cardigan around here...

Casual Friday 
R.W. Camp Co. (a defunct traditional American clothier in Middletown and Essex, CT) harris tweed 3 button sack, wider lapels (it's from the mid 1970s, I think)
Mercer & Sons blue oxford which is nearing the end of its lifespan
Polo Ralph khakis, no cuffs or pleats
Navy socks
Weejuns
Early 1960s Hamilton 22J gold-filled tank manual wind watch, ribbon band

On the street:
Oliver Peoples Gregory Peck sunglasses
Burberry Cotton-Burella(R) Waterproof raincoat (grandpa's, 1960s)
J. Press black leather gloves

those lapels are generous but not too wide, I like them

I like narrower ones too but there's something cool in the abundance of material in that tweed sport coat

re the black leather gloves, I hazily recall someone here who hated black leather gloves and wrote something about them that made me laugh, but of course they've always been offered at every Ivy shop in the Northeast since forever, so they're canonical, but just for the sake of the laffs I wish I could remember who had the black leather gloves bugaboo ......

I have a pair or two from Press and Brooks, have no recollection of buying and I can't remember wearing them, I must have gotten them in Boston many years ago to deal with weather that was colder than I'd expected ........

I wouldn't have said it was sick personally. I like the overall effect and it reminds me to make more use of my button through knitted waistcoat, but those trouser bottoms look seriously tapered ZJ, is that a post market mod?

Woof, sorry - I accidentally edited your post instead of adding my own, somehow...

I didn't really latch into how tapered the trousers are at first glance... I think it works here though...

Re: Ivy League style for today

Today - light brown herringbone Southwick 3/2 sport coat (this is a beautiful new acquisition and in the next couple days I'll be posting better pics of it in the Ivy finds thread along with a major vintage LL Bean shirt haul and an incredible Brooks sport coat)...

Along with a coral/pink silk foulard tie, dark blue cardigan vest from Jos. A. Bank, vintage flap-pocket Bean OCBD, c-buckle belt, Lands End chinos, dark blue ragg socks from Bean, and blucher mocs... Side pic to demonstrate that my trouser legs are not as ridiculously pegged as they appear in the first photo...

Thanks for the kind words, Leer! Fall and winter are my seasons, so I'm having fun putting outfits together these days...

Head to toe LL Bean except for socks (Wigwam 625), t-shirt (Hanes), and skivvies (none of your damn business).

Trying to light a cigar in the wind. Flicking the Bean, indeed.

Hat is because gun season for deer opened the other day.

A great feeling when you open those sort of parcels. Much more exciting than getting something new.
