Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

That LE shirt is a good pick up, as is Young Ivy's Gant paisley - nice labelling on that one. Both quite different but both satisfying finds.

A great-uncle of mine lived in Huntsville... He was Air Force, worked personally with Werner von Braun on the space program. Somehow I doubt he wore any shirts like this one big_smile Great find...

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

LOL. Even though I've worn another PRL rugger for years, my wife, aka The Blithesome Bodacious Babe. tells me now that my newly acquired GW rugger is one of the coolest things she's seen me wear. Go figure. She says it has to do with the elbow pads on this one. I'm good with all this.

I hope so! If it's to small and you might fit in it, it's definitely yours!

my faves too Woof, I used to have quite a few, from J. Press, with flap pockets, of course, but then sometime in the early 2000s they became hard and then nearly impossible to find, so for a few years I was wearing the same pencil stripes from Press but in plain and tab collars, shirts I bought in the '80s, the plain one is still in nice shape but the tab-collared one is basically a goner now, but..... the one I just got is a Brooks Brothers Makers button-down collar and it's nice ....

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

Very nice LeeLo.  I would go with a plain shirt, the glory of a jacket like that deserves to stand out on its own. A nice blue or pink BD in linen or end on end,cloth.

Thanks for the tip, woof. I was just trying it on in the pic with that combo. I promise I didn't leave the house like that tongue

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

Haha I'll hold you to that wink

But for real, I love the blue and red base for that madras, with that hint of green and yellow... Looks great faded, very tasteful. I'll know what to look out for now as I expand my madras collection...
