Thane v-neck cashmere sweater
Tagged size 44
This vintage sweater is made from high-quality imported cashmere. Although the label does not indicate country of origin, the hand is every bit the equal of my vintage Scottish-made cashmere sweaters. I would not be surprised at all to learn it was...

A while ago, I thrifted a really nice pair of Minnetonka oiled suede "Frisco" blucher mocs. They were discontinued around 1995, so my pair is quite old but they appeared to have never been worn. Super comfy and great for informal fall wearing.
The napp isn't so oiled is a lot of areas after 20+...
When thinking of the Trad or Ivy Style home office, what components would you include?
This is not a "how to" exercise, because these things are best accumulated over years, not purchased en masse.
Here's a short list that comes to mind for me:
An oak desk with a leather top
An antique oak...
I've been saving up for the and Rancourt Beefroll loafers for some time. My piggy bank allows me to buy one pair of each.
The problem is, I now need to wear orthotics, and I'm not sure if that makes wearing loafers impossible.
At my local AE store (which does not carry the Kenwood), the sales...
I'm considering purchasing some Brooks Brothers Advantage Chinos, but they aren't offered with cuffs.
How much longer should the inseam be in order to have cuffs made? In other words, if my inseam is normally 30", should I order 34"?
And do the in-house BB tailors generally do good work at a...
This might be a good thread to showcase what members have achieved with shoe rescue or revival projects.
I recently e-thrifted these Whitehouse & Hardy shell cordovan longwings. This is my first pair of shell and I read as much as I could find about how to maintain them and achieve the best...
When I received my re-ordered back-ordered pink OCBD from BB, it happened to come from the Flat Iron store in Ann Arbor. The receipt was inserted in the little envelope pictured below. I like the graphics and the little tale on the back about how the sack suit came to be.
I've not been to a BB...
I came across an interesting film from 1950 titled "My First Week at Dartmouth" and learned about the freshman "dink" cap. I was vaguely aware of these caps but didn't realize they had such a widespread presence on college campuses at the time (not just at Dartmouth, either).
They seem to...
Looking to start a new thread with posts related to wheat / white denim. I think members would particularly enjoy seeing examples, past and present, of wheat denim incorporated in a Trad ensemble.
To start, here is an Ivy League image:
I'm looking forward to seeing other examples.
For Christmas, I received a pair of LLB Scotch plaid flannel pajamas in size M:
The fit is ridiculously oversized, like a size L. Extra long sleeves, huge chest, pant legs dragging at my...
I want to love the L.L. Bean Scotch Plaid Flannel shirts. But I'm having trouble finding a good fit and feeling a bit frustrated.
In the past, I had tried size M and size L, Traditional Fit. My recollection is that the size M was a little tight, or seemed so after an initial washing. I...
