Trade Show Roundup

trade39

We’ve had such a steady stream of newsy material that the menswear trade shows have been put off for months. So for the rest of this week I’ll be posting photos from shows in January, springtime, and just a couple of weeks ago. In other words, there will be a seasonal mixture. Check back on this post; new photos will be placed at the top. — CC

    We old time Trads used to have the hots for Lauren Bacall.

    At one time rumor had it that Ralph took Lauren as his new last name because of the association of the name with that classy lady.

  2. I think it’s high time we had a subtlety and sophistication break.

  3. Should we have a batik vs. trade shows vote?

    There’s Robin Williams in olive corduroy in just the previous post. And it’s still summer.

    Robin Williams’s character, Mr. Keating, wasn’t obsessive about purist Ivy. He preferred Anglo-American academic style. By the way, I don’t remember even one buttondown collar on either Keating or any of the prep school students:

  5. First a dig at plain-fronts, and now buttondowns!

  6. CC, any additional Alden pics? I am curious about the tassels in the last pic. Do you have access to pics that might reveal #’s?

  7. I spent some time chatting with Alden, but alas that was back in January, so my memory is fuzzy. I don’t recall a lot of news from them, but I think I shot those shoes not only because I’m a tassel loafer fan, but because they were new colors. And I think the one on the left is shell.

  8. Any idea wher McAlson boxers can be purchased (domestically)?

  9. New colors, eh? Color me intrigued.

    I am imagining the LHS in those colors. Please, please, please, let me get what I want…

  10. As for color, I’ll take the Alden on the right.

  11. @S.E. I am intrigued by many of your comments as they pertain to what you call custom ivy. Could you please email me at zacpowers@me.com, I have some questions you might be able to answer.
