Re: Ivy League style for today

Ah ha! Thank you, LeeLo. I thought perhaps the ribs were sagging skin. (Not really--I know you're not that old. However, I am, and my old eyesight did not pick out that detail.)

Alan Paine Polo / H and J sack / Ralph Lauren flannels (nice high rise) and Sanders squarer toe versions from Oi Polloi (the Mark McNairy ones from a couple of years back which I think are the same shape they're selling now)

I greatly like the elegance of this. Nothing baggy nothing saggy. Crisp!

Great work as always, Ox. Love that sweater every time.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Thanks guys!

I still think that the trousers look a bit too big. They're 31R, does anyone know what the rise are on 31S? I would mail O'Connells but they're not very eager to answer questions. Atleast my questions...

I once bought an S size in O'C's trousers - big mistake. Very little rise. The trousers in the photo are perfect so change nothing and enjoy.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Classic as always, Ox... I love that shade of green. Probably would never pick up a color like that myself but you demonstrate how wrong I'd be. Where's the belt from? Just a solid navy surcingle?

Re: Ivy League style for today

Berkeley_Breathes - Thank you. The green was a bit of a reach for me as well, but I found it at thrift. It was fate. The surcingle has a burgundy stripe. I got it at leatherman (http://www.elizab.com/category/lm-surcingle-belts.html). I like their belts.

Re: Ivy League style for today

I like the jacket, Ox, but I think you should pop the collar. They're more or less meant to be worn that way.

Interesting point. What I find is that worn like Ox is doing the G4 front falls open to reveal the tartan linen, which looks fine with a plain shirt. When the collar is up the front lays flat and the lining is largely concealed, this works when wearing a patterned shirt which will inevitably clash. Thats my rationale anyway.

I've only felt able to wear harringtons again recently. It took me years to get over Chris Huhne.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Damn, stan, that paragraph alone is worth a couple pages of photos...

Today - started out in yellow LL Bean short-sleeve OCBD, Brooks Brothers ribbon belt in navy with gray and burgundy stripes, cuffed and slightly short chinos, Wigwam 625s, and scuffed white Keds... as it's quite chilly today ended up in a ragged old white (well, whitish) Pine Point sweatshirt from Fruit of the Loom, Wrangler "wheat jeans," kept the 625s on... Knocking about packing old Army duffles for some training that's on the horizon...

Re: Ivy League style for today

Pictured is how I wear mine. In fact, I find the jacket I have does not naturally allow the collar to go flat as in Ox's photo. I find the tartan lining is revealed a little when zipped up partially, more so when unzipped. I also don't mind the clashing patterns of a shirt pattern and the tartan lining. I'm sure it often does clash, especially with a tartan shirt, but I just don't consider it a problem, I guess.

Old photo, but sharing as illustrative example of popped color and clashing details:

This is my old and much loved navy version. I recently picked up one in stone.

Just like the man himself.

But I have to say, I think Ox's way of wearing it works very well. Maybe it's because of the OCBD, I like the popped G4 collar around a crewneck but it looks crowded with a button-down (sorry Chip)... Or maybe it's because of the color, that green up around the neck and face would be distracting... To each their own!

Re: Ivy League style for today

No reason to be sorry, but I don't happen to like the way Ox's works at all, frankly. If Ox likes it, fine, of course, but for me, one of the distinctive features of this jacket is the popped collar. I find it a little odd to see it worn any other way.
