    Caring for oiled suede blucher mocs

    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+...

    Components of the Trad office

    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...

    Loafers and orthotics -- completely incompatible?

    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.

    Pant cuffs

    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...

    Brooks Brothers Flat Iron stores

    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...

    The Freshman "Dink" or beanie cap

    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...

    The Trad Wheat Jeans thread

    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.
