I like the gingham seersucker.

Can someone put my mind to rest about the 'sateen' part?
Sounds horribly shiny to me, but presume/hope not...

Not that I'm aware from last time I visited their atelier.

Of course some would argue that ivy was essentially an off the peg democratic style, delivered to the masses through the aegis of marketing, and that consequentially bespoke and made to measure have little place. What say you?

Re: HARDY AND JOHNSON

Hi -
I'm just road testing things I've read and been told. I agree with you about "The Essence of Ivy". But what do you do when you can't get what you want? I think the clothes from H and J are remarkable in style and price. Amazing. I'm interested that they do not offer trousers as there is insufficient demand. There seems to be various sea changes going around at the moment; Mark Powel doing ready to wear. H and J adding rtw to their vintage range.
Oh for the days when there was more Ivy to choose from. Now the range is very limited when compared to what once was. MTM Ivy seems to be a very hit and miss affair requiring a lot of risk taking and trial and error at the moment. Even then it is out of the price range of most people. Bespoke is a safer bet but then you are talking seriously silly money: I do not have 400 for a shirt or 3.5K for a jacket. Prices I was quoted the other day. 800 for a pair of flannels? I don't doubt that the workmanship and choice you get for your money is a cut above the norm. But I have to question the profit margins going on there.
H and J could fill a gap neatly there if they wished. Affordable tailor made Ivy. Who else is doing that?

Re: HARDY AND JOHNSON

I want and am ready to order a H&J, hopefully followed by many more.  However right now I want a plain(or close) light/mid blue summer jacket.  The gingham jacket looks perfect if it wasn't gingham.  I love the Gingham but it's just a step too far for work.  Buy it for non work, I hear you say!  That is tempting but I really want a work jacket right now.  Neither H&J or Keydge seem to have one around.  I'm tempted by the Vetra I posted up the other day at Present but would prefer a H&J given the guys involved and the work to get to here.

Thanks Chris, that looks great. I'll go take a look at FB.  I'm sure that will be a popular choice for many.

Re: HARDY AND JOHNSON

Let's stay calm. There's only two great guys in H&J, sold direct through relationships here and in FB. It's a brilliant small scale operation with the right details and sympathetic context in their photos, but let's avoid hype.
