Hi everyone! I recently found out about the forum via the Ivy Style Facebook group. I am excited to be joining others who are interested in American traditional style.

Here is a photo of today’s trad combination featuring my favorite 3/2 Andover Shop vintage blazer that was manufactured in the 1960s and gifted to me nearly 20 years ago.
Hello and welcome. Looking great.

LL Bean Oxford. Hilfiger khakis. LL Bean boots. Croft and Barrow blazer
Thanks for the reminder...I have pairs of the LL Bean 3-Eylet Camp Mocs and 8" Boots that I haven't thought of for the pasty year or so. Yours look great on you, but perhaps it's time for me to find mine and guide them on their walk of shame to the Goodwill Store! At my age it is past time to seriously thin the hoard. LOL. :(

Hi all,

I've never posted anything before, but with the temperature changing here in Tennessee, I was able to break out my sweaters and tweeds. Thought I'd share. (And next time, I'll try to smile more.)

Shirt is BB OCBD (old version). Sweater is BB donegal wool. Jacket is a vintage BJ Keats Harris Tweed. Chinos are Lands End.
Looking good...and welcome to the forum. Looking forward to your future postings. ;)

That's a beautiful Tweed sport coat (and outfit) from Monday. You should post it in the Tweed thread.

Thank you re Tuesday's outfit - I love the white bucks and grey flannels. It's at the top of my Ivy list of things that I wish would come back.

I like today's Chukkas.

Well done all week.

When my wife descended the stairs she had spruced up quite nicely. Pretending life is normal I dressed for online church. O'Connell's jacket, worsteds, and unfused OCBD with a Chipp challis tie. No idea why it shows up sideways (assuming it still does).

PS, with credit and thanks to Fading Fast, I believe I fixed the photo.
