Re: The Ivy Book

GG -

Always look carefully at where any criticisms come from...  (But you know that anyway)...

Who are the Ivy League style specialists & who are just generalists like Flusser & Boyer, et al, who'll just talk about anything?

Chensvold will possibly want to write about the book to draw attention to himself - But he knows nothing about this subject. I created Chens the Ivy fan as a promotional tool in September '08.

Online 'Trads' will possibly bitch about the book as a point of honour - But they are just the dupes of another online  marketing scam of mine and so their point of view has to always be viewed in that light. It they know so much about Ivy then why are they anything to do with 'Trad'?

Many will want to pose as Ivy experts. Let's see who they are. If we don't know them already as ones who really know about  this subject then I would be amazed.  Online & offline.

God bless journalists, but their opinions on The Ivy Look could never be as informed as ours. We've lived it.

And we learned from one of The Masters... The man who IS Ivy in Europe.

The English Charlie Davidson.

Best -

Re: The Ivy Book

When the Ivy Look goes to hardback they should commission Jimmy to author the dust jacket. I believe could do a really good job on the flaps....... wink

I'm just not in the mood to even entertain the thought that Graham Marsh or JP Gaul could ever be given shit for an Ivy book by them.

The talking heads will talk, but as they're not thinking heads, so what?

Time I had kip number three of today...

Re: The Ivy Book

Seriously - and with no disrespect to JG - it seems highly improbable that Graham Marsh would offer anything half-cocked.  His album covers books have been acknowledged classics since before I had to shave each day; not always easy to get your mitts on.

Re: The Ivy Book

This is going to make its co-author a figure to be reckoned with, and rightly so.  Graham Marsh requires no introduction.

Re: The Ivy Book

I'm a tad irritated at the way the 'Ivy Style' website has posted recent pieces about Autumn being a key month in the resurgence of 'the Ivy/Preppy trend' (sic), citing the publication of Take Ivy and the updated Preppy Handbook as key elements. Yet not a word about The Ivy Look which comes out in a few weeks. Most disingenuous, and rather petty and spiteful I feel. I ought not to worry though as I know for a fact that a very large number of Americans are pre-ordering from Amazon UK as the book isn't out in the US until next Spring. So somehow the word is out there in spite of a studied indifference from some quarters.

g.g.

The autumn is exciting to me because of The Ivy Look and the re launch of J Simons, could care less about the other stuff........

He's a grudging petty little (although grossly lumpen) man who's blog is a farce. I still have all the dirt on him - All the old emails & all the news on him from behind the scenes. He's a pathetic striving 3rd rate hustler who I conned into dropping all his supposed previous convictions to blog on Ivy & his pride alone now keeps him going, tying to pretend he's not my internet muppet.

He'll probably try to trash your book just to draw attention to himself. So let him. I'll just trash the fakey little fucker back down into the 'Dandy' dirt from whence I picked him up.

'Trads' may try to trash you too. So let 'em. They're also my muppets. All they hold dear was contrived by me & my crew.

I have absolutely no intention of buying a copy of 'Take Ivy'.  The Handbook might go in the downstairs toilet as one of those kind of joke books you sometimes see in twee suburban homes.  Milk and water stuff, no?  'Ivy Style' makes me smile.  Marsh and his mysterious co-author have nothing to fear from that quarter.  Get them and John Simons to sign copies at the new shop.  They'll be forming queues around the block.

Re: The Ivy Book

... You all know me...

I say a lot of things  don't really mean just because it's fun to say them...

But I really do think that the game is over now.

Our American brothers (with oh such notable exceptions - GOD bless them!) really dropped the ball big style on this subject of ours, slice it how you like. And their attempts to regain lost ground ever since then have really not impressed - 'Preppy'? 'Trad'? Chensvold? The mess that J. Press has turned itself into? The living grave of the once mighty Brooks?

It's over.

London has lead all of this in the West for so long now that it's a joke.

And America is left with... What? 'Preppy' & 'Trad'...

To each their own.

I'm just happy that my crew hasn't made such a stupid balls up of everything.

GTH (Which I gave you, oh ye 'Trads', remember!)? GFY more like.  ;-)

The best the US has is Charlie Davidson - whom you've all REALLY failed to impress, & Ethan who openly laughs at you all.


The US has about a handful of good guys left on this subject. THAT'S what you've done with your national style, boys.

Still - Have a 'Tradly' day why don't you?

wink

(what were you all thinking?)


-  Next time you want to 'Ask Somebody About Something' maybe you'll remember all this?

wink wink wink wink wink

Re: The Ivy Book

The game appears to be gravitating: eastwards.  Sweden, Finland, Slovenia.  Japan, it goes without saying.  My guess is, though, certain sussed Americans will reinvent, rediscover - call it what you will.  It really doesn't matter where, as Ian Strachan says it's about keeping the old tradition alive.  Yes, someone had to take the ball and run with it.  Russell Street tries to keep a tight hold of it.  It's down to Patrick's team to wrestle it back from the goddamn Limey...
