Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

Not so old (80s?, 3.5" lapels) but wonderful nevertheless, 2 feather light J. Press cotton sacks, one in 'natural' à la G9 and one in a pale olive shade. Like new.

Thanks to H. Logg for sourcing these.

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

I was looking for vintage Palm Beach, but I found Brooks:

olive poplin wash and wear sack suit, patch and flap pockets and (if seller measured right) perfect to the last half inch in every direction

(cue quiet suitgasm in Maclennan Castle)


USPS making more on this than the seller, hope it works out...


p.s. I am thinking casual shoes and white OCBD/polo shirt, more than this suggested look:

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

I'm a novice when it comes to suits and coats. I've tried wearing a few odd coats over the years but they were never really to my liking. Not knowing where to look I sort of gave up. I never was in a social or professional environment that called for suits, so I only tried the water at weddings and funerals where I wore my not-quite-there stuff feeling a bit awkward. This forum provided my belated education, and it's only now that I can be very specific about what it is I always wanted in a jacket. I'm basically aping most of you guys now, heh.

Here's my first proper purchase in years, can't wait for it to arrive. I don't know how this make rates, but it's an early 1960s "Vaughns".

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

Very Brooksian. Very nice. Wear it in good health, '66.

I've spent my life buying Grey or Brown Herringbone jackets & as Chris_H has observed they really are THE jacket.

... Navy Blue Blazers are meant to be the most wearable, but I'd say pish - The Herringbone Sack really rules The Look!

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

Somebody please purchase this.
http://cgi.ebay.com/1960s-Vintage-Mens- … 7C294%3A50

It is a Gentry sack suit, in charcoal flannel.  If it were 2 inches larger in the chest, I would would have weaseled it into my ownership already. To small for me, but one of the size 37's or 38's should really jump on this. 
End transmission.

Interesting how this stuff is either sold as Trad or Mod.

and that it has sold for over US$100 -- but hey, saves whoever the trouble of rifling through Goodwill or Oxfam or whatever for it.  So to that guy, it may be worth it.

Yes -- I've got one that I wear almost more than anything else.  I would've thought that it held more appeal to Americans than English since the English have always immersed themselves in the tweeds, eh?  Well, so have New Englanders, but what I'm trying to say, is that the ol' Herringbone has always had a bit of the Anglophile inflected in it -- the ol' collegiate atmosphere, Gothic Spirals, slobbery dogs, "My Club," "Har, Har", etc. etc.  I'd have thought that the tweed was too universal in England to allow for anything approaching "The Look".  Even in jest or irony.  That said, the ol' navy blazer continues to endure for the American male.  Both of these jackets though have transcended their "upper" and "upper middle" and even those who aspire to them roots and might be pretty universal now.  Maybe not though. Maybe this last generation has dressed so fucking poorly, that it'll seem like something new.  Jesus, I'm rambling like ol' Egbert Tom, and I'm not even soused on cheap whiskey.

'Tis the Ol' Ivy cut over here that makes the diff., Ol' Sport.

The Look is in the cut, not the fabric, for us.

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

The Logo with the little shoe came in sometime in the 90's. Anybody got a closer date?
