The Museum at FIT will present "Ivy Style"


The Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York City will be hosting an exhibition called Ivy Style that will run from September 14, 2012-January 5, 2013.  Given the dream team assembled, including the substantive involvement of both Richard Press and G. Bruce Boyer, the presentation and study of classic menswear should be pitch perfect.

Funnily enough, this may also be the last ever, original collection curated by first-hand, non derivative authorities of the golden age of this style. This moment in time, far enough for perspective yet close enough to draw real accounts, makes this event (and this word is seldom used seriously on this blog) important.


Delivering some of our clothes to be included in the exhibition.

Newburyport, Massachusetts



Newburyport can be described by some general terms that fit at least a dozen other regional spots. The architecture is beautiful; there is a maritime history and the town is in great shape.  But the downtown area is shaped by and for tourists.  Buildings are obscured by the throngs of humanity.  Parking is a blood sport.  Advice to anyone who wanted to go would be to arrive far off season or to stroll the streets between 5 am and 7. It is more more resort than village.  In short, Newburyport is a "Black Dog" town.
