‘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.
