I have never seen an episode of Mad Men. A whole episode. I watched maybe the first half hour of the first one, and it was not my jam. When I took over the FB Group, there was this huge thread about how Mad Men was Ivy and about how we should all be dressing like that…
We’ve moved on, but I got an email the other day with an article about how Mad Men has aged well and referencing how influential in style it was that Banana Republic actually collaborated with AMC and did a Mad Men collection.
It just occurred to me that we typically capitalize Ivy but we don’t typically capitalize hipster.
My friend Jim sent me a link from Allen Edmonds “just to piss you off.” It worked.
Apparently the Wall Street Journal has finally caught on about that picture we showed you a few months ago. I am not sure what the lag was in covering this. Or am I?
Finally, this is news to me so if it isn’t to you I apologize, but Todd Snyder has a collection of other-things-than-shirts made from Oxford, which we also capitalize, but we don’t capitalize polyester.
The Brad Pitt in a skirt thing? I always thought that Brad Pitt dressed well. Not Ivy, but it is possible to be dressed well and not dress Ivy. And I think kilts are Way Cool. And I could not give an S about gender and clothing. So why does that bother me so much?
