Curio: Gropius Bow Ties

A collection of six bow ties belonging to pioneering modernist architect Walter Gropius (1883-1969) are currently on display at the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s Frances Loeb Library.

Gropius, along with fellow modernist Le Corbusier, helped cement the bow tie as an emblem of nonconformist thinking, creativity, and architectural genius. The bow ties in the collection provide a glimpse into Gropius’ personal taste, his connection to Harvard, and his thoughts about the small accessory that makes a big statement. (Continue)

Interview_with_Zachary_Deluca_from_Newton_Street_Vintage_at_Keikari_dot_com

Zachary DeLuca was one of Ivy Style’s first contributors, and he recently rejoined us in the more formal role of assistant editor, where he’ll be writing regularly, helping plan content, and fixing typos (though how good he’ll be at that, when he can’t even remember to button his own collar, remains to be seen).

Zach was recently given the Keikari.com questionnaire (you can’t exactly call it an interview, since an interview involves asking different people different questions). Check it out and get to know the man who’ll have to captain the ship if I get hit by an errant golf ball, possibly my own. — CC

If the perennially bow-tie-clad Richard Press were ever to decorate a Christmas tree, it would probably come out looking like this.

Special thanks to R. Hanauer, whose actual Christmas image this is. They operate bowties.com, where you can find all your menswear-themed ornament needs. — CC

Today on Ivy Style’s Facebook page (which you should follow, by the way, for yet another vehicle for trad camaraderie and debate) a member posted a link to a recently uploaded slideshow of William F. Buckley. Included is the above shot of the family playing football on Thanksgiving weekend in 1971.

I thought this one of the Buckley family in 1958 was also interesting, given the recent discussion about loafers with suits (exposed shins increase the nonchalance). The shoes look laceless to me, but if I’m wrong, it’s a nice pic anyway. — CC (Continue)
