Our series of posts on the color olive comes to an end with a peek inside the armoire at Ivy-Style.com headquarters back in 2011. This is one of the Norman Hilton sportcoats that his son Nick relaunched at the time. I picked it up at the New York factory where it was made; Nick Hilton gave me a tour along with a perennially sockless FE Castleberry. The next day I took it for a test drive in the outfit pictured above, which includes flannel trousers and ancient madder necktie from O’Connell’s, Ralph Lauren Purple Label pocket square, J. Press collar pin, and monk straps by Peal & Co. for Brooks Brothers.
Forget what socks I wore. — CC
