Here’s a fine example of the value of the library of information we’ve built up over the past 11 years. This morning I awoke to a text message from Ivy Style contributor Trevor Jones, showing me how he’d taken inspiration from our recent “rich and dull” repost. Trevor was too young to pull off the look when the post first ran a decade ago; in fact, he probably wasn’t even a reader of the site yet. I believe the inspiring image comes from a Japanese magazine from the ’80s. Trevor brought it back full circle by wearing a blazer from the Japanese brand Boston Tailor.
On a personal note, please bear with me during the final flurry of my last 10 days in New York. Yesterday I was hoping to get up my interview with Alan Flusser but as you can see it didn’t happen. This afternoon I’m meeting with Southwick, so we’ll have that down the pike when I can get to it.
As the Japanese say, Ivy Forever. — CC
