Ivy Chic, Japanese Edition


Does “Ivy chic” live in Japan? It does to my eye, as evidenced in this bold, simple, and elegant look from a Japanese member of Ivy Style’s Facebook group.

He said he’s wearing a vintage Brooks Brothers nailhead suit, white Brooks shirt, and black knit tie from Atkinson’s (also note TV fold handkerchief). Wonder what was on his feet?

    Mark Jensen, I hope you were wearing a monocle and an ascot sitting in a room with many mounted trophies when writing this.

  2. What, I can’t even pay someone a compliment now? Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I’m being repressed!

  3. You’re certainly repressing something!

  4. It’s a Monty Python line, Cucksvold. Maybe you need to watch “Can We Take a Joke?” again. You’re sense of humor is worse than a Feminist’s.

    Elegant I wouldn’t dispute, but I can’t help noticing that the tie’s knot has slipped, letting the ensemble down. I’ve found that cri de la soie silk ties, with their renowned “crunch”, hold their knots by far the best. Drake’s, or closer to source, Peacon, are the places to find them.

    Whoops! I should, quite obviously, have written “knitted” and not “silk”.

    The design of that suiting makes me dizzy just looking at it.

  8. In a single car on the Ginza line I saw more Ivy than I do in week in San Francisco.

    We’ve passed the torch as a nation.
