Re: Ivy League style for today

Feeling more business casual than smart casual today - this sports jacket is beginning to get on the older side, and just doesn't really suit worsted pants v well anymore imho.

Jacket - Brooks Brothers navy hopsack, needs replacing soon
Shirt - Mercer, straight collar red gingham
Pants - Orvis ultimate chino, trim fit
Shoe - Alden longwings

Really more of a mod thing, I think. Big things happening at work, just wanted to feel relaxed.

B_B what colour trousers did you pair with that tie and jacket?

Same trousers as in this earlier outfit... Stone, I guess you'd call it...

The more recent jacket looks almost brown in the crappy lighting but it's a definite gray...

Whos the maker of the trousers? The cut looks mighty nice.

When did it come into question?  And by whom?  I'm stunned.

Thanks, Bradley - they're vintage LL Bean. A good rise, a little higher than the Brooks Hudson fit, with back flap pockets... And wide-wale, which I don't believe LL Bean is offering anymore...

I think mhalat was asking for confirmation that his love of Donegal was sanctioned by the Ivy gods. And lo, verily...

WM, it's funny, your pics inspired me to search "Donegal 40R" on eBay to see what I could come up with... and I came up with I believe that exact Presstige jacket discounted to $80 from $160... and it is now in my closet. So thanks for that...

My light olive 'Made in Canada' Presstige Donegal Mist jacket is in for alteration, one more attempt to get the shoulders right. Its such a classic that I don't want to give up on it, but its never felt 100% right from the day I got it. I have found a new alterations tailor, a Russian lady who lives a couple of streets away from me, I wore my vintage grey Donegal mist jacket to show her what I wanted the shoulder to look like. I'm full of confidence in her, she took one look at the olive jacket, immediately understood what needed to be done and explained how she would go about it. I'll provide an update in due course.

Friday today and I don't have to go out of the office to see anyone, so I'm keeping it simple. M65 jacket, Ebbets cap, M&S navy lambswool crew neck, blue Brooks OCBD, JS chinos and Paraboot bluchers.

Re: Ivy League style for today

So happy to hear that, Berk! 

That's unfortunate about the shoulders on yours, Woof.  Hope the new chick can sort it.  I'm mighty happy with the way the shoulders fit and look on mine.  But it's an older (dated October '89) US-made model.

Mine sits at a strong 3-button stance.  I've thought about pressing it to 3/2, but I think it looks good as is, so it stays for now.

WM, mine is a tradly 3/2 and looks great, but yours really looks excellent, especially with that Shetland. I don't know the date on mine but it's also made in USA and fits beautifully - the sleeves a little long but they're fine until I can get around to it. I'll post a pic in the next few days, I've been accumulating some looks to post here...

Re: Ivy League style for today

I agree.  The HJ jacket looks great.  And, uhm... what a handsome face.  To follow Ox's very fine display, I will post the clothes I wore yesterday in the form of a DOUBLE L DOUBLE THREAT.  US-made Bean shirt and Bean sweater with olive O'Connell's twills and Rancourt mocs.  This is the warmest sweater I own, hands down.

Nice look TC!  I see you mentioned Grey Flannel, Ive looked in their window a couple of times, what are your thoughts about the ivy content?

Re: Ivy League style for today

Cheers.

I hadn't heard of them but was visiting John Simons and popped in, just had a quick look. They have some knit ties and Panthrella socks of Ivy interest and seem to do made in Italy stuff under their own label. Their clientele seems to be the type to prefer a wide legged, loose fit but I found the trousers pictured which are a slim fit (wish the rise was a bit higher). Before sale discount these were 170 I expect chinos to be a bit cheaper and wool a bit more.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Lots of awesome stuff here! Woof, two great looks - love flannel with corduroy but that Brooks suit is really breathtaking. Love the very high third buttonhole on the jacket! Is that tie more blue or more silver? Your photos disagree on the matter...

Treble Clef, love that jacket...

WM, that sweater looks incredible, especially paired with olive trousers (a juxtaposition I wouldn't have thought of)...

Ox, my man, what can I say?? Love the scarf, love the shetland, props as always on the Barbour and the flap-pocket OCBD (LL Bean?) - but those ties really make the outfits in my opinion, and the belt with silver buckle too. A+

Re: Ivy League style for today

Thanks fellas - that tweed suit is one of my favourite vintage finds, a stand out item. In a largely tweedless world 99% of the population probably wonder why anyone would deliberately wear an old suit like that. I've yet to have anyone offer me loose change when I'm wearing it in public, but it could happen! However it always elicits compliments from those who have a sartorial bent and I resolve to wear it more often.

Beebs -neither picture tells the truth as the tie is sky blue.

A tweed suit is all too rare these days, but I think it's one of the best-looking things one can wear, especially in this age of anonymous blue business suits...
