I love the color juxtapositions in this pic... Great shades of blue, very close together... I think the instinct can be to go for contrast but this look is more washed-out and it looks great! Less so in the second pic, so it might just be lighting? But I like it...

Props to you for rocking that bow tie... Slap a dark knit tie on that last outfit and you've got yourself a winner in my humble opinion...

Ha!

Having fun with this stuff is really part an integral part of Ivy in my mind... Just like the OCBD says "I don't care about your collar stays, old man"... From Holden Caulfield's hunting hat (that little s**t) to Miki Dora's, uh, everything, to a rugby shirt under a chamois shirt under a down vest...

Very much woof, I've waited ages for some bean mocs to come at up a cheap price that still had life in them...then the risk of the fit, people say size down...I'd say that actually the length is right it's just the fastening round the vamp like with loafers. I shouldve gone with a US14 but I can live with these.

Re: Ivy League style for today

yesterday started the day in green Birdwells, then shifted to OD green fatigues, light blue t-shirt, black/brown grosgrain ribbon flip-flops (Scott Hawaii), cable-temple Ray-Ban aviators (own vintage [OV])

before changing into turkey-consuming uniform:

navy tropical worsted Andover Shop trousers, flat-front, natch, 30+ years old
trusty old blue/white alternate-stripe Brooks Brother Makers tab-collar broadcloth shirt
mid-brown Alden leisure handsewn moccasin penny loafers
Leather Man of Essex royal/navy cotton/ribbon C-buckle belt

gave away a dozen outgrown OV t-shirts (from the highly coveted Supreme and Union on down) to a bunch of little rats

Ragg wool socks
Sorel slippers
LL Bean red union suit
Kellsport made in USA heavyweight sweatpants
Old LL Bean chamois shirt with healthy spattering of paint
LL Bean chamois robe
Reversible bobble hat from Cusco, Peru with alpacas on it

In the process of opening up a fireplace so spending most of the time in dickies work pants that are too big and being covered in dust.

Now relaxing after a few drinks in Edwin jeans, Sebago loafers, Wigwam socks, grey sweat shirt with a Pendleton board shirt on top.

Re: Ivy League style for today

selective wear and tear department: you know when you have some good items that haven't been worn much and then one day you decide to start wearing them more in order to give your favorites a rest?  I love being able to find some semi-forgotten stuff to put back into circulation .....

80F outside, putting the wear on a pair of medium-light-gray tropical worsteds, cuffed, handmade bespoke ca. mid-'90s, Brooks Makers striped tab collar broadcloth shirt, medium-tan Alden leisure handsewns, C-buckle buoys belt from Maine

wearing these clothes for today's mission now

special vintage '60s briefcase in hand and secret-agent vintage Ray-Ban sunglasses too

did a big spring cleaning this year and found a lot of interesting stuff

Re: Ivy League style for today

I've been gifted a load of old vintage american clip ons, and I'm trying to decide which to wear to the the Christmas works party....I think although I like the above look, the blackwatch with the midnight blue needle cord sports jacket is going to be the one I go for.... 👍

^Amen to that. Seriously though, top notch stuff from you today, Berk. Wigwams are a nice touch to give the rig a collegiate look. Is that croc strap on your wrist too?

Thanks, Lee, I appreciate that! I was thinking of your excellent ways with a blue blazer as I put everything together... Yes it is, I asked around here for recommendations and Hirsch seemed to be the way to go, I've been very happy with it...

Today, took this pic on the fly - old LL Bean poly-cotton OCBD with beautiful and slightly frazzled collar, vintage silk tie from The Man's Shop at Lord & Taylor, and Southwick tweed sport coat... and of course I was also wearing pants, socks and shoes...

Re: Ivy League style for today

most of today:

mint vtg. '60s Mavest half-lined 3/2 patch-pocket hopsack navy blazer, union-made in USA, two on the sleeve center hook vent, excellent green foulard lining with burgundy and gold medallion print

to paraphrase our old pals the Doors and Jim M., "the Mavest is the best, the Mavest is the best, get here and we'll do the rest"

the rest:

Brooks Brother Makers white ocbd, USA;
O'Connell's medium-gray tropical worsted trousers, flat-front, 1.6" cuffs, USA;
Leather Man of Essex navy cotton webbing/ribbon/leather C-buckle belt, Maine, USA;
gray Brooks Brothers merino wool socks, England; 
dark navy square-end 2" knit tie with thin, widely spaced kelly-green stripes, 70% wool, 15% mohair, 15% alpaca, England, '80s, from legendary local hardcore Ivy/preppy/trad shop, now defunct
medium-brown Alden leisure handsewn penny loafers, Massachusetts, USA, early '00s.

now:

nice Alpinestars graphic t-shirt, either last year or early this year, white with purple/gold/yellow, washed and softened to perfection   

thick navy cotton Adidas basketball shorts with zip pockets

hard to find a nice all-cotton Adidas anything these days, besides an ever-shrinking number of t-shirts .... 

started gardening barefoot and stopped myself, now trying to decide whether to put on old destroyed Chucks or to destroy a pair of Red Wings, or to just relax and leave it alone and

I'm going with chilling out and having a cup of tea

Textbook. The lining on that blazer sounds really incredible... Sinatra used to have all his suits custom-lined, some of them he had pocket squares to match the lining which is kind of a cool trick...

Thanks stan, I agree... I also have a vintage BB Makers repp that's very similar but the navy stripes are thin stripes... I think a navy/red repp has got to be the most classic tie around, I'd wear one every day...

Re: Ivy League style for today

Some great work in the last few days Berkeley. A bit more casual for me today as there was stuff to be done out there in the cold:

M65 with Leith Shetland and BB OCBD under, LVC 501s and Paraboot Imbattibles. Bean flannel lined wax cotton fowlers cap from their current range, I'm really pleased with it.
