I recently had an epic thrift haul in which I found a wardrobe full of high end suits and sport coats all in mint condition. As you all know (or maybe my new followers don’t know) I run a ebay store and thrift for a living. I thrift so much and I find so many cool items that it is rare that I get excited from a haul. This was one of those rare times. Here are a few of the items I picked up…I will post the rest soon. in fact, I will start sharing a lot more of my finds here.

Boglioli herringbone 100% cashmere sport coat

Gianluca Isaia 100% cashmere sport coat (with the most beautiful windowpane pattern and patch pockets)

Gianluca Isaia plaid sport coat

‘Traditionally cut jackets have natural shoulders, three buttons’
Ah - words to make the Ivyists pulse race. Of the hundreds of old ads and features from mid-century editions of Esquire that Graham Marsh and I rummaged through when planning The Ivy Look this I think was my favourite. This delights in every detail - fit, colours, shoes and haircuts - all have that soft elegance that is so central to my notion of the Ivy look. The contemporary purists these days lecture on natural fibres and the 3 to 2 roll, yet the impeccable seersucker sported by these dapper chaps is ‘Dacron-cotton’ and the top button is done up on a number of their jackets. This is a minor, but revealing detail, and with Ivy, detail sure matters. 

#menswear——A bunch of dudes wearing the same clothes with no women in sight lol..Don’t be afraid to try different things gentlemen..
