Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Your right, there's pictures in HWATIL. It's a very slim cut with fairly low rise trousers too. Cool suit though.

I prefer James Coburn's suit though.

Can someone get those pictures up? They look like a high rise to me.

I don't have that picture but here's one with JC in a Catalina. That has to be some kind of consolation....

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Just had a look in the book, I was wrong they're not a low rise I'd say about 11.5" at a guess.

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Inspired by recent postings of vintage H.I.S. cord jackets, I'm seriously considering a Keydge needlecord slack jacket (too impatient/lazy to search for vintage stuff). I realise that Keydge stuff seems to really polarise peoples' opinions; some think they're good value for money, others think they're overpriced tat made in China.

So, how many people on here own one of the Keydge needlecord jackets and are you happy with it?

I'd probably buy from John Simons (website) and was intrigued by the Charcoal Brown one, particularly since Keydge's own site doesn't seem to have this particular colour. Is it really a brownish colour or more of a charcoal grey? I suppose the other obvious choice would be the Olive Green.

As far as sizing goes, I'm a UK36 jacket size which appears to fall between the Keydge 46 and 48 sizes. From searching on here, I think "Moose" is a 36 and purchased a size 48.

Moose, do you have any photos of your Kedge cord jacket worn just over an OCBD?

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Who bought that sized 38 vintage Del Ray pincord by Hol-Man of Cali. on Etsy recently?

The seller was kind of ditsy and took it to the dry cleaner after I noticed a mark on the upper back; reported back that cleaner misplaced it, was retrieved by another customer, supposed to be put on on reserve for me, finally bought by someone else. Not that I really needed a second corduroy, but I hope it went to someone on T.I. as it's a dead cool jacket.

I'm very happy with the cut and quality of my cord Keydge. Charcoal Brown is a great shade, think plain chocolate not milk chocolate, it works well with a wide range of colours. I went for new as I found it hard to locate a vintage jacket in good condition.

^ Cheers Woof.

Yes, I think the Charcoal Brown sounds like a nice versatile colour. Another item for the ever-expanding shopping list smile

I've got a 36" chest but often 38s fit me better because I'm relatively broad shouldered and lanky. My Keydge is a 48 and I wouldn't wear a size down. I'd love a cord one. There are some photos of me wearing it on here I think but I'm not having much luck with the search function. Am I getting old already?

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

I've a great Brooks with footie buttons which pleases me muchly...but I'm a Keydge man and proud of it too..
I sit generally between a 42 & 44 chest but find the Keydes in a 54 are bang on for me... a great fit and why I've become so fond...
I'd deffo go up HM... especially if you're unable to pop by there and try one on first... Bon Chance Fella!

Right - there'll be no more talk of  Keydges from me...with Bop a neighbour now, I don't want to fuel his wrath any longer...I live in fear of him hurtling down a side aisle in Sainsburys with a Cucumber in his hand and taking Thee poor Captain by surprise...as it is?!?!?

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

The olive corduroy jacket was a staple at my prep school, much more popular than the blue blazer, possibly because of the school's rustic ambiance.

You just don't see corduroy jackets around anymore these days--sad!

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Half Mast - check your PMs.

My first Keydge was a navy cotton one and I actually bought 48 by mistake. Out of the box it was too large but they shrink after a wash and the size seems right for me now (true 36" chest). Sleeves can be shortened by 1", this doesn't compromise the buttoning. I ordered the corduroy in 48 on purpose after that.

Measured as I wear the 48 now: 16.5" shoulder and 19.5" pit-to-pit, about what I look for in a regular sack jacket. Plenty room for a shetland underneath - not a closely tailored look.

A size down would have been fine too I'm sure, for a slimmer look - but I don't think this is the Keydge's forte.

Charcoal brown is a matte mid to dark brown with maybe an olive tinge. Very attractive.

Re: Ivy As Hell: The Corduroy Jacket.

Olive is a versatile and flattering colour and deservedly popular. I went for brown because a (vintage) brown sack jacket is tough to find otherwise - olive is easier.
