This might be a good point to clarify: the Cambridge sack on Brooks Brothers' floor is not the Southwick Cambridge model. It's just a curious and confusing coincidence that they both use the same name. Further, I believe that Brooks' Cambridge is made in the Far East (at least that's what I...
Duckbill, if that's that's the case, you have a longer memory than I have! On second thought, the A&F jacket may have come from Tweedy Don. If that's the case, sorry TD--it never fit right. And it's been a long time hanging unworn in my closet. I do think, though, that the A&F jacket is the...
Thanks, mjo, very much. I'm still around, though write rarely and haven't found the mojo to begin posting pictures again. I'm still enjoying listening to the conversation, however, if only as a auditor.
With the moderator's indulgence, I'd like to mention some auctions I am currently running on eBay.
Among the items are
* an original Abercrombie and Fitch ivory silk sportcoat (48L)
* a vintage Brooks Brothers tweed suit (45L)
* authentic bleeding madras Bermuda shorts (36)
* genuine Nantucket...
C. Sharp, your detective work is incredible. I also saw the Gannon entry (or one like it) but couldn't find my way to the GT, Inc. connection. Thank you, again---that's exactly the answer I was hoping to find!
I'm looking for a little help on ID'ing the manufacturer of a pair of vintage Press madras swim trunks I purchased awhile back. I've looked everywhere on the trunks for an RN or WPL #, but no luck. No luck in searching through trademarks and logos on Google, either.
Just out of (sincere) curiosity, could someone define --as specifically as possible-- "trad" vs. "preppy" dressing for a woman? Current/contemporary photos would be especially helpful to illustrate each category.
Rambler, agreed there, with your "imperfections" point. I like to think of it as "insouciance" and it certainly has its place. As I said, I'm not fussy or persnickety in my own dress. I've rolled plenty of pairs of chinos (and, hookem, more pairs of jeans), especially when worn with, say, a...
It could very well be, Rambler. It just looked to me that the bottom edge of the cuff looked thicker than it would be if it were simply a "two-ply" roll-up. Looked more like a "four-ply" cuff.
At any rate, I do stand by my opinion that a proper cuff looks better than a roll. I'll amend that...
Leave it to an Italian to nail it.
I actually don't think those are rolled/turned up. It looks to me that he took an older (or pre-hemmed, if such a thing existed back then) pair and retro-fit it with cuffs. The lighter line running through the center of the cuff would be the...
Georgetown University Shop Troy Guild blue w/white stripe ocbd
This shirt appears to be virtually unworn. Immaculate condition.
15.5 x 34
It tears me up every time I see something from the old GU Shop come up for sale. I worked there for three years while I was an...
