I was browsing at the newsstand the other day and saw one of those LIFE photo collections on the Rat Pack. I flipped through, saw an interesting outfit on Dino, and brought it home to share with you guys Forgive me for taking snapshots rather than scans; I don’t want to anger the folks at Time Inc. or Getty Images.
Dino looks to be wearing an Ivy-Continental hybrid jacket, with patch pockets and short double vents. But of course what really caught my eye are the cream-colored socks, which appear to be paired with black suede slippers or tassel loafers. “Light In The Loafers” was one of the earliest posts here at Ivy Style in the fall of 2008. It was reposted last year. Usually it’s a casual move, but here Dino shows it can be a stylish one as well. —
The airplane was Sinatra’s (he loved the color orange), hence the headline. — CC
