Cool Pictures

In order to honour MG Ace Face, and to carry the torch for the (hopefully short) time while he's gone (and I'm confident he'll return), let's revive Motown's thread, which is far too good to be forgotten...

Here's to you, Mr Motown!

    • Cool collection of pics! Man, even cars are boring today.

  • Been doing some research into the Ivy league style from the 1950's and saw some really cool photos.

    • Is that suit Seersucker?

    • I think so, it was quite common for southern ivy league types. 

    • Sorry I phrased it poorly :) I think it was worn in the southern hotter areas due to the nature of the cloth, by people emulating the style ivy league style. 

    • Well depending on how strictly you define the Ivy look but it definitely either spread to certain southern states to or else overlapped with the existing trends in southern states for items like seersucker in the summer and herringbone in the winter. I'm clearly no expert but I've seen the term 'Trad' used to describe a widening of the Ivy look (both geographically and idealistically) beyond its origins in the elite north east coast Ivy League universities.
