If I lived closer to NH I would go to this event, Mr Press & Mory’s would be more old tradition than I could resist. Been to Mory’s twice[dinner in 2004 & 2007-before the recent renovations] and throughly enjoyed it.

I’ll be eager to hear more, particularly how “the golden years” is defined.
The more I think about it, the more I think Christian was right. I might extend it to 1968 or ’69, but I’m inclined to understand “Ivy” according to the Heyday offerings: basically the 60s.
While it may be true that a few Heyday-inspired offerings (think Black Fleece) are ridiculously short and narrow, I think it’s true that most men wear pants and jackets that are too long, and ties that are too wide. IF New York professionals are any indication, that is.
There’s an Ivy Golden Mean. One knows it when one sees it. In more than one way, three is, yet again, the magic number.
