On another subject, I need to find some cord shirts....

In UniQlo at the moment, 20. The material's thin but there are some nice colours.

They don't really cut the mustard, nice colours as you say but that's about it.

I don't think it's wise to wait until the first pair of trousers are worn out until you break open the second pair. The jacket has 'patina' and may even have changed in  color a bit especially if it's been dry cleaned. The trousers don't match. Best to rotate.

Very quickly sold to a Mate who dug it.

Which is my point about about turnover being brisk at JS...

Oh I don't know... How far is the leap from Bucks to HPs ?

Clothes & shoes are just (wonderful) stuff. Some like some things & some do not.  It's all up for grabs.

It's the redbrick sole that distinguishes buck from hush puppie, and makes them more acceptable for me.

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

It's new, it's darted and made in China, but I think this isn't a bad option if on a budget - unless you find the 'right' jacket on etsy or ebay etc.
I tried on this colour in store and it fit well and looked great, no doubt the same fabric as used by RL et al so doubt it will last more than a few years.

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

^ I'm sure I can lose the middle button from each cuff, and would have preferred butterfly lining, but for the money I can't complain. I already have the BB navy patch-pocket blazer, so just need a BB tweed to complete the set.

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

I just scored this 3/2 fully lined and canvassed with absolutely no padding in shoulders, 2-button cuffs, notched back vent:

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

I like how he pairs what looks to be likely a vintage Brooks or Press 3/2 cord sack suit with a clean looking collar pin and thin silk repp on what still looks like a heavy cotton button-cuffed shirt that bleeds ivy league... a dead cool contrast! Who wants to take a wager on the footwear?

And for everyone seeking out corduroy five pockets... the above is testament to the coolness of the less casual and proper cord trouser!

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Very nice jacket.

While we are on the subject - what makes the difference between a cord that picks up fluff and everything and one that doesn't?

Sneaking in non natural materials?

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

^ I like Tony's cord suit way better, but I also hate when gingham shirts (especially blue check) are worn with ties (especially thin black knit). Perhaps 'cause it's a cheap looking uniform standard for all the moldy oldie mods I know around here.

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Isn't TP's cord suit in that pic more of an English style? I'm pretty sure I've seen other photos of the suit and it has roped shoulders, darts, and straight three button.
