Love the cut of the pants, but that image is the idealization of a period of distinct cultural hegemony; it's moralizing. There seems to be a policy of selective analysis when looking at Ivy style. Ah yes! The cricket sweaters look smashing with the slicked back hair in these old Kodachromes! The fact that our stylistic magpie-ism totally ignores the social aspect of dress and circumstance is problematic, especially at the level of wholesale adoption of a style. Fetishizing the styles of a privileged hegemonic cultural without grappling with the secondary effects of its expression seems to be pretty par for the course when it comes to this whole Ivy Style movement. I hate to sound off on your post, but the clarity of message in that piece is exemplary. Dudes just look like they are gearing up to go to a dance to fight some Italians in that wholesome Yankee way.

Clearly, this can be found in many if not all fashion trends, especially high fashion. The laudatory nature of the whole industry is pretty noxious.Anyways, let's keep to re-integrating punks and skins back into mainstream culture through the style market.

So, uh, clearly:

blixa is a personal favorite of mine. legendary. ironic that after he stopped doing drugs, gained weight to a normal level, and cut his hair, that he ended up looking like the older brother of the singer from interpol.

watch cave's "straight to you" video and watch blixa laugh at the camera.

I remember in college when I used to throw my authentic cherokee blanket over a picnic table, gather the boys around--Hunsley in a safari cap, and Fulton in a turtleneck, I'd play the banjo,we'd link arms and

sing the cannon song, and talk about how nice it was to be Caucasian.

Good, good times. (extreme homo).

agreed on all counts....I guess I didnt take as much from the picture as you did. it was really just the overall cuts I enjoyed. looking

at the picture again that yankee bravado is definitely a little overwhelming

now back on topic

I'm not sure what you mean but I'm pretty sure it was a styled series of outfits - I don't think the guy just went around and found a bunch of bizarro skinheads.
