All this talk of the Ivy Shop, the Squire Shop and Village Gate has brought a tear to my eye! I frequented all these wonderful places from about 1969 to the early 70s. I particularly liked the half-sleeve summer shirts and the 'Royals'. I recall one had to have at least two pairs of Royals - one plain Derby or Bluchers style and one pair of wing-tips with the longwing.

Do I also recall that Quincy in Brewer Street offered a number of Trad items?

I visited John Simons in the early 90s, having lost touch a little over the years, and he dug out some vintage Royals from his stockroom that he was keeping for posterity - just so that I could touch them again:)

Dear Brideshead,

My Trad Army needs you!

The plan is to march on Savile Row and catch them while they are busy pleating & darting away down there.
I'm going to bring them some old Brooks & Press catalogues to look at.
All we'll do is 're-educate' them.
First London, then we'll have a pop at Paris & Rome.

More Elliot Richardson, the Nixon years. First with Tricky Dick in happier days...then with Archie Cox...a couple close-ups...finally, a new president.

Dr. Damage,

In your photos of George Bush, who's the guy with him in the first photo, and with him and Jim Baker in the second?

Alan Greenspan looks a lot younger in the photo with Jerry Ford.

Later,

Russell, don't fret. That Peck/Finch look is as "Yankee" as it "Southern." In fact, here's a guess I'll wager: while you see (relatively) quite a bit of that particular style of frame around NYC and in New England, you probably see little of it below the Mason Dixon. Can't be sure. Just a guess.

As for the seersucker and/or pincord: again, not necessarily "Southern." In fact, I believe I'm correct that Brooks brought seersucker to the U.S. So, it could be as much a "New York" thing as a "Southern" thing. Both Southerners and Yankees can agree that it's an "East Coast" thing.

But then you have to consider that one of the better trad shops is located in San Francisco. Now I'm really confused.

-Harris
I think Peck looks more Yankee than southern in that picture. Remember, this is not a photo of an actual person; this is a photo of Hollywood in 1962 dressing a man to look like a southerner in 1932 *but* trying to make him look good *and* enlightened *and* smart.

So they gave him contemporary (for the time) frames, which have "New England" written all over them, and which also say "intellectual", a white suit (which does suggest the south), and a vest plus pocketwatch, which suggests "old fashioned gentleman". (I do have to wonder how many men in non-airconditioned southern alabama actually wore vests in the 30's, particularly when they were in crowded and presumably very hot courtrooms.)

I do think that Atticus looked great in the movie, but I don't think he's a good example of "southern trad" (whatever that is).

(For people who have seen the movie, there is an earlier scene where the judge comes and asks Atticus to defend Tom Robinson. The judge is wearing a baggy white suit, *I think* poplin or linen, very wrinkled, very loose fitting - this is probably accurate for that time, place, and season. Unfortunately, to modern eyes it looks sort of ... slovenly.)

I'll disgree that seersucker is an east coast thing - when I was growing up (and before), it was very common in Kentucky, which is not at all on the east coast. I suspect it was also pretty common in TN, MS, and AL, although I'm not certain of that. Maybe it's an east coast and southeastern thing...

The first photo is from 1988 and the man is not identified; the second photo is from 1980 and the man with GHWB and Baker is "US Senator Paul Laxalt (R-Nev)".
