My main problem with the clothes in this movie is that the characters are too dressed, i.e. they don't look at home in their clothes and Rob Lowe in particular has a new outfit on in every scene, he never wears the same thing twice... That and everything looks brand new...

Babblington, you have been sorely missed, thanks for the link, I know you know we've posted some of these images ourselves before   .....

re 1970s DIRTBAGS FASHION LOOK BOOKS ONE, I relate strongly to all the great Adidas and the bagged-out jeans and the ski sweater ...

the guy in this shot who reminds me of my own dirtbag style is the guy in the center square, in the middle, dressed in an off-white light zip-neck sweater or early fleece, yellow t-shirt, and jeans bagged out at the knees, and scuffed white sneakers

second guy would be the dirtbag in the first picture, to the right, in black t-shirt, brown jeans, and sneakers, and shades ... channeling Jerry .....

you know who else in these pics is channeling Jerry?  besides every single one of them?

the kids in their sleeping bags lined up against that rock wall, who are doing what '70s kids did when they camped out overnight at Winterland and the New Haven Coliseum and elsewhere for Dead tickets ......   

more later but Bop, come on, please .......

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

The book they're taken from gets a questionable review on amazon which puts me off getting it. On the same website as I linked there is a 70s skate look book too, but didn't think that really fitted with the thread.

Babbling, I've looked at the two lookbooks in the above link, this is what they include that I had plenty of:

'70s second-hand tees;
'70s Levi's corduroy shorts;
vintage forest green, brown, and navy blue bandanas;
old-school '70s Adidas Country, Gazelle, and Samba;
contrast-sleeve raglan baseball shirts;
Norwegian sweaters;
'70s Bausch & Lomb Ray-Ban outdoorsman sunglasses;
'70s Levi's shrink-to-fit USA-made 501 jeans with patches.

regarding the vintage Levi's boot-cut corduroys, in the early '70s we all had a few pairs of those ... JFK, Jr. and his cousins wore them and so did we, sometimes the straight-leg 519 cords were not what Mom came home with, and back in the 1971-75 era I'm not completely sure I even knew or cared about the difference between the boot-cuts and the straight-cuts though I did later ... but somewhere in this house I still have an archival box of our old USA-made Levi's boot-cut 517 jeans and cords from the '70s, and I'll sell them off one day .....

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

I can't see myself going for the boot cut anytime soon you'll be pleased to hear. . Although some shapes of trainer suit that style...couldn't really wear a 60s style high waters with the adidas country but the campus and gazelles look fine because they're closer to the CVO style you'd expect with that type of cut, in fact the shoes I currently use to skate in are the Adidas Adiease which are a classic CVO similar to the Sperry or Vans. However saying all of that the tendency for a longer straight cut in the 70s seems to work with other style of atheletic shoes and more trad ivy classics like the blucher moc. So there is a half way house in all of this..

Anyway here is a 1976 scan someone has posted from the jogging article in the first edition of the Japanese Popeye magazine

Any idea what the trainer under what looks like the Stan Smith style one ?

It's in shots like this that the line between 50s and 70s becomes little more than the hair and glasses.


some sort of banal legitimacy

too true, youth ... this is why we pursue the '70s prep link to Ivy ... those kids in need of haircuts and better eyeglasses were the sons and daughters of Ivy ... they were us and we were them .....

although I've never worn glasses (not counting sunglasses obviously) I did have long hair exactly like this guy, who was originally in my class in college; this, my friends, was Late '70s Prep:

yo Ken Babbs, KILLER scan from Japanese Popeye mag, those trainers were by Head.  I sleuthed it down and then noticed the word "(HEAD)" in the Japanese text underneath the sneakers ....   

re the boot-cuts, haha, besides me, only Chipper has 'fessed up to having them back in the day, not counting Thee Captain, who posted an amazing photo of himself rocking out in his long hair, psychedelic tie-dye tee, burgundy Gibson SG, and 517s ....

of course I'm not advocating the boot-cuts, just acknowledging their '70s prep role, which the revisionist OPH failed to do notwithstanding John-John's long history with the style

re the Adi Ease, I'm very interested in a particular pair in dark gray suede with textile lining, glad to hear you've got a pair of them .....

yeah BB, it's really too bad, I used to wear their stuff every day, now it's all painful, and Sperry Top-Siders are possibly the best examples I can give of how overseas manufacturing and cost-cutting for profit can diminish once-great products ......

Any recommendations on boat shoes that wouldn't cost a fortune (just like Quoddys that look fantastic but are crazy priced)?

I mean, did it really happen?  what year was that from?  where was it?  it is Ivy perfection and could have come from any year from 1936 on, that was when the Bean blucher moc was introduced according to the company ....

every element is done just about as well as it can be, look at the shoulders, look at the lapels .....

I know it was possible because I dressed like that a few times over the years but it was for dates in the city not for campus

so hats off to this guy for putting it all together so inspirationally and really timelessly

the rounded shoulders, the palette, the Shetland, cuffs, bluchers, the taslan ....

now: supposedly the blucher mocs were introduced in 1936, but I can't find a catalogue scan to nail it down ....

there are a whole load of pages from a Fall 1936 catalogue out there, featuring a plethora of highly desirable stuff including early great versions of Maine Guide Shoes and the famous duffle bags and the tantalizing Sportsman's Carryall, but no posts of any pages containing the blucher mocs ....

there is a Fall 1936 catalogue for sale on eBay as we speak, I wonder if the blucher moccasin is in there, or if it was offered in some other special circular or mailing or advertisement?

I wonder if the ladies' blucher moccasin style actually predated the men's style and that was what was introduced by L. L. Bean in 1936?  hmmmmmmmmmm

anyway, I can see a very recognizable camp moc (called an Indian moccasin) in a 1933 Bean catalog, and something close to a blucher moccasin but with a crepe rubber sole (called a camp shoe) in the same catalogue ....

also see a similar style sold at Chicago sporting-goods emporium Von Lengerke & Antoine, which was owned by Abercrombie & Fitch, in 1939 ....

the point is: blucher moccasins or similar styles are proto-Ivy from the Americana side and as we know are distant descendants of Native American traditional footwear, to which the camp moc is more closely related than the blucher .....

isn't there anyplace that can resole current El Salvador Bean camp and blucher mocs with Amazonas true camp soles?  somebody, please find out for us ......
