Fall Forward: New Items From Brooks Brothers Red Fleece

When we change the clocks twice a year, we remember the direction with the mnemonic device “spring forward, fall back.” But these days retailers bring out next season’s clothes earlier and earlier, and as soon as July 4th was over there were already signs of fall. Yesterday Brooks Brothers sent out an email blast plugging

Picture Show: Hollywood And The Ivy Look

Our last post was on Warren Beatty’s being named one of GQ’s men of the year for 2016. A perfect excuse to revisit this 2012 post on the book “Hollywood And The Ivy Look,” which includes Beatty, along with many other leading men and character actors who launched their careers during the heyday of the


Return Of The Original Hollywood Playboy

GQ has selected Warren Beatty as one of its Men Of The Year for 2016, hailing the return of alpha males and the “original Hollywood playboy.” Beatty directed and stars in the new film “The Rules Don’t Apply,” which is set in Hollywood in 1958. Beatty features in the book “Hollywood And The Ivy Look”


In The Zone: Rod Serling’s Midcentury Style

I remember watching “The Twilight Zone” as a kid on our console RCA TV in the basement, with the now classic theme music still readily playable in my head. I recall one episode in particular in which a young woman has been raped, and her father goes to pick her up from the hospital. They’re


Pie In The Sky: Happy National Pizza Day

Today is National Pizza Day, and over the past few years I’ve considered it a personal challenge to come up with an Ivy tie-in every time some silly national day comes up. It didn’t take much grinding and churning of the little grey cells to come up with the notion of taking a quick look


Avuncular Style: Robert Vaughn And The Original Man From UNCLE

Ivy Style first ran this post in August 2015. It is being reposted today following the news of Vaughn’s death at the age of 83. * * * Today “The Man From UNCLE” opens. Hollywood, as the cliché goes, is all out of new ideas. That may not be such a bad thing, as there’s



The End Of Camelot

Yesterday the first teaser trailer was released for “Jackie,” a biopic chronicling the First Lady in the aftermath of the assassination of JFK. Natalie Portman stars as Jacqueline Kennedy and the film opens in December. Anyone else have a crush on her? DCG prefers Anne Hathaway, to whom I have a violent allergic reaction. —



Hans Landa Gets His Dream House

A new Samsung commercial running during the Olympics features Christoph Waltz, the Austrian actor who rose from obscurity in his fifties to win the Academy Award for his portrayal of the SS colonel Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds.” Many critics called his performance the greatest portrayal of a villain in cinematic history. Fans


Olympics, You Know: Walk Don’t Run, 1966

Is it me or is this the least exciting Olympics ever? I hadn’t paid attention to when it was starting, but tonight is evidently the opening ceremony. Perhaps it would be more enjoyable to watch the Cary Grant film “Walk Don’t Run,” which is set at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics with a plot contrivance that


No Laughing Matter

On Monday we reported on “Indignation,” the Philip Roth adaptation that opens today. Well another movie is hitting theaters as well, a documentary on comedy in the age of perpetual outrage called “Can We Take A Joke?” As a tribute to the gentle art of making people laugh, here’s a mini-gallery of comedic actor Leslie
