  1. voxsartoria posted at least half of these photos on April 12th. I respect FEC’s hustle and we all have to eat (his outfits are not my thing but whatever). However, this time Mr. Castleberry crossed the line into re-blogging without attribution, at the very least he bit someone else’s idea and didn’t even give props for the inspiration for posting additional photos. It would be too much of a coincidence for him to come up with this spread on his own after vox had it up for 6 days. I find it hard to believe that he is not familiar with the voxsartoria site. So weak.

  2. Is voxsartoria a real person?

    For the record I don’t generally attribute anonymous tumblr pages, etc., especially for posting 50 year old photos that they did not personally take. Where did voxsartoria find the photos?

  3. Nice photos of Paul “the Popper” Newman. 😉

  4. All of these photos were on “The Impossible Cool” earlier today, butbhave since been removed.

  5. Vox Sartoria could use the humility.

  6. All – and I mean all – of these pictures come up on the first page of Google images with the simple search, “Paul Newman”. I’m thrilled FEC can cut and paste….

  7. You just won the Protesteth Too Much Award of the day with that one.

    Did Mr. Castleberry confuse a straw porkpie hat (shown in one of the pictures) with a straw boater (which I didn’t see in any of the pictures)?

  9. Yes, I think so.

  10. What exactly is surprising about Fred “borrowing” ideas from others? It’s the foundation of his life.

    Just to add to that, most content on the web is “borrowed” or rehashed etc

  13. I went ahead and mentioned to Castleberry that he actually meant porkpie and not boater. He changed the text, but deleted the comment. Naturally. 😉

  14. That’s what I usually do when someone points out a one-word error. Wasn’t the purpose of the comment simply to bring the error to the blogger’s attention? Does the anonymous comment-leaver really need the comment pointing out the error to stand under his username? I thought the point of such comments was to help the blogger.

  15. We all know the internet/blogosphere is full of copycats and that little content is truly “new”. However, in this instance, CC re-posted this based on his explicit belief that some of the images were somehow unique, hard to find, or newly discovered:

    “Fred at Unabashedly Prep, recent star of our comments section, has just put up a Paul Newman photo gallery that may include some shots you haven’t seen before…”

    In reality, not only have most of these images been swiped from other blogs/tumblrs, they’re all readily available to anyone who simply Googles “Paul Newman”. Moreover, Fred’s porkpie/boater error is more than just a “one word typo” – it exhibits a lack of knowledge on a subject he professes expertise. If I ran a classic French car blog and misidentified a Citroen as a Peugeot, that wouldn’t be a “typo” – it would be a glaring mistake……

  16. Wasn’t the point of this post Paul Newman’s style? It’s absolutely amazing how all but one (!) commentator end up discussing F. E. Castleberry, again. I say with MAC: nice photos!

  17. I am fairly new here at Ivy Style and have only commented a few times. I want to point out that the irascible and acerbic AEV makes the most entertaining and pertinent remarks of any commentator. Several persons have spoken up to defend the ridiculous Fred Castleberry. It’s time someone spoke up for AEV! It would be interesting to know more about this commentator. Would Mr. Chensvold consider doing an interview or feature on him?

    That made me laugh…

    @ RLN……seconded

  20. Actually, I think Life did just post some of those a few months ago. Or maybe not, its hard to remember, there are obviously a lot of Newman photos around the web.

    Its cute that voxsartoria has a fanboy to fight his battles for him, in any case.

    Lol. When it comes to anything remotely Fred or “Neo Prep,” you guys are like a bunch of 14 year old girls immaturely ostracizing what’s different.

    “Prep(py)” is bad enough; “Neo Prep” is unbearable.

  23. The more Newman, the better.

  24. Newman’s ivy style is on full display in “The Young Philadelphians”. Of course it’s a movie so maybe the costume designer should get most of the credit. Don’t need to watch the whole movie, just randomly skip around the last two thirds of the movie.

    I just discovered this topic and noticed the photo of Mr. Newman. He is on a boat, based on the nautical rigging in the background. The “popped” collar is really the result of winds on the water and not a fashion affectation, its what the buttons on his OCBD was supposed to prevent.
