Who doesn’t love more JFK? On July Fourth we celebrated President Kennedy and the stars and stripes. Today we celebrate solids and stripes — plus a plaid. This pattern-mixing scheme of plaid jacket, striped shirt and solid tie is a timeless winner.
I don’t recall having seen this photo before, which was just brought to my attention at Ivy’s Facebook group (which you really should join via the link in the top menu). Is the knit tie navy, or was black already a classic when the photo was taken, which looks to be 1940 or so? — CC
