A Night At The Movies

Our last post showed how Ivy’s done in Japan, and here’s how it’s done in Manchester. From Ivy Style’s Facebook group, three English blokes at a summer screening of the John Simons documentary “A Modernist,” which you can watch on Vimeo here

  1. The Japanese do it so much better.
    The chap on the left comes closest to authentic Ivy.

    Geoff Vale is being kind. If this is how the Brits think is Ivy, God help Ivy in Britain. The word ‘yobbo’ comes to mind.

    I assure you, this is not how it is done here, and I am going to question whether or not you would hear a British accent if you spoke to them.

  4. These young men are learning to wear jackets and ties and doing a better job of it than most of the people I see waking down the street in the USA. Good for them.

  5. If I had to critique, I might say the two on the right look a bit costume-y. But I will agree that I’d rather see that than much if the streetwear I see here in the states.

  6. All three are wearing button down shirts, an American invention (Brooks Brothers) that was inspired by English polo players.

    So, the Americans “borrowed” from the English and now the English are copying the Americans while the Japanese have copied the Americans and improved on the original. To add to all this confusion is the fact that polo, and most likely button down shirts, originated in India. Ivy, therefore is truly a global style.

    The guy on the left looks embarrassed to be in the same photo as the other two.

    Jackets, ties, and shirts – 8.0/10

    Trousers, belts, shoes – 2.5/10

    Our organic culture as an other culture’s sub-culture?

    I am feeling appropriated…

  9. These guys are a step in the right direction.

  10. A fair cross section of Ivy Globally.
    The good, the bad and the ugly.
