1 1/2" cuffs. I notice that the belt loops drop below the waistband. I suppose this is typical of tweed suit Ivy trousers and that it's the Dacron-type Ivy trousers where the belt loops tended to stay on the waistband?

The tweed Brooks for sale recently for about 90 seconds on Newton St Vintage reminds me of this (don't know the hem of the one above, but I see the Newton one was 18.5"). Neither would've fitted me anyway, but naturally I'm still jealous of those two lucky owners.

$600.00?!

What do you think of the suit, Marlowe? I honestly wonder if most people would think of this as a non-gallery item. Would it, from an overall Ivy perspective, be nothing special? What would make it special? Not a fan? Certainly not a $600 fan? It raises eyebrows, that figure. The result of something of a bid war. If memory serves though for God's sake don't peek at the price tags of John Simons' vintage selection if that gives you heart palpitations. It was a three piece. (If you or anybody sees another 50s/60s grey herringbone Brooks like this in great condition - I'm not interested in a waistcoat - in size 38R (40"-42" actual I suppose), about 25" sleeves I think, trousers 33-34" waist and about 32" length and can do a reasonable price, don't hesitate to get in touch. The one on Newton St Vintage - about $250? Can't remember - looks like it would've been too short in the arm for me.)

This sounds a bit weird. I meant wool trousers in general rather than just tweed, and I suppose ones in the early 50s, just before the Boom period, would tend to have belt loops like that.

Seems like the Japanese are kicking our (the rest of the world's) ass when it comes to new ivy.

I suspect with shipping and customs charges from the US to Japan being probably excessive, plus the difference in average body sizes, the Japanese ivy hardcore were forced to abandon vintage many years ago.  Plus they seem more obsessive than the rest of the world, meaning they want things pristine, perfectly fitting and with authentic boom years styling.

(They probably work so hard so they can afford to buy new gear like the above, that they don't have time to hang out on forums like this.  Or is there a Japanese language equivalent to this forum?)

Brooks in San Francisco did roaring business with Japanese tourists and businessmen passing through town. It even had a couple of native Japanese speaking sales associates.

Re: The Gallery -

Oatmeal reminds me too much of the shanty town I left behind me.  They say Crouch End is dull but there is plenty of fun to be had if you know where to look for it.

I found myself looking through the '...Style for Today' thread and happened upon this. Great to see that bobble hat as the knitting God intended it. Overall a great look for this time of year.

It's a great look. 1966's from about 2 years ago.

The one below is Moose's Pendleton shirt with tigers eye buttons.

Many great photos posted by Patrick back then. He was on a real roll that winter.

I'm also nicking this image from the Suit Room blog. Brooks camel hair blackwatch Sportcoat.

This is a preppy item I could live in.

I remember this well, because I thought it was some kind of genious when I first saw it, with the hat, the G4 (London Fog?), madras and those boots (some Italian brand I'm not familiar with).. Still do, actually.

How about the best of ILSFT? Patrick in a 60s Harvard Coop suit comes to mind immediately. The Thin Repp in a Hickey Freeman Naturalaire tweed sack and a bowtie, and another one of him in a three-piece with slightly too short sleeves... Lots of great, inspirational stuff from back when I was still lurking.

It's worth a dig Ville. I've been enjoying a lot of those old posts today. So much good stuff. Moose and The Weejun posted some great stuff too.

Humbled by the props chaps (- yes that's a Fog, Woolster).

It's a shame Tom Rath's photos are gone. Luckily Brownshoe's are still there (he used Tinypic for hosting - recommended).
