Today’s post comes via another reader tip. While last time it was budget OCBDs, this time it’s something a little more discretionary: regimental-striped pajamas from the English brand Derek Rose. Price converted is $236, plus shipping to the US.

This article from the DR website manages to work in a non sequitur reference to “Take Ivy.” Well, English style and the Ivy League Look are close cousins, after all. — CC

A reader recently alerted us to the $25 oxford shirts at Target.  Surprisingly, they feature a rear collar button. And with their tailored fit, low price and apparently smaller collar, they may prove a viable option for impecunious young trads, perhaps of the student variety. Kudos to Target for offering a bit of Main Street Ivy for the masses. — CC

Kudos to longtime Ivy Style supporter R. Hanauer for the wonderful cover on its new spring catalog, which arrived in my mailbox today (as it should have in yours).

Hanauer paid tribute to the great tradition of apparel illustration that companies such as Brooks Brothers and LL Bean championed for so many years. A quick call to company scion Randall Jr. revealed that they indeed commissioned the illustration, and the artist’s name is David Merck.

Head over here to see the brand’s latest bow ties. — CC
