'Princeton guys essentially wrote the rulebook for dressing Ivy. Here they are credited with popularizing the wearing of brown odd jackets with grey flannel trousers in 1929. It’s from an April, 1935 passage in a publication called the Fashion Group Bulletin'.
apparently yes .. i like this tidbit-
January 1925, United States president Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933) declared that he "wouldn't be caught dead" wearing Oxford Bags. That spring the John Wanamaker department store began marketing the trousers in the United States
fascinating tidbits there from poorsod, pliny, and unbel. the roots and backstories of traditions are revealing. A state supreme court justice was debating the value of precedent with my class once. Some of the students were leaning toward a juridical philosophy that ignores prior cases, preferring to rule only according to the legal values fashionable in that captured moment of society's evolution. The jurist responded that he considered precedent to be seated in the room with him, and before casting his decision, he would always at least consider how the silent chair would rule.
