The jacket above was made by Corbin for The English Shop of Princeton. It’s quite apropos for the Fourth of July, able to hold its own against even the most extravagant fireworks display. And although the jacket was made for a haberdashery called The English Shop, it’s pure Americana.
So on this Independence Day weekend, let’s drink a toast to England, which not only gave us our language, but most of the building blocks of the Ivy League Look.
And then, without getting boorishly jingoistic, let’s pat ourselves on the back for kicking them out and doing things our way.
Happy Fourth from Ivy Style.
