    This is pretty neat, but I'd love to see more images in higher resolution

    I have decided that I need to see this. Also, good excuse to get up to Brooklyn Brewery too.

    Spoo, you can rock anything remotely Ivy/Preppy if you want

    I want to see you in a cricket blazer, and I also want to see you in those corduroy skull critter pants

    I went by the exhibit when it opened this afternoon. Really great. No pics allowed, unfortunately. I'll try to post some notes over the weekend.

    It goes without the saying that the raccoon coat was off the hook in person.

    Personally, I enjoyed seeing a lot of the 1920s Cornell memorabilia, especially the blazers/jackets.

    There was also a collection of slippers that looked really old (but maybe not) - the designs seemed more amusing and innovative than what you see today, IMO. There were a pair of moss green house slippers with big "1" on the toe box, designed similar to the motif on the corner of one dollar bills.

    There was a also a mix of old and new clothing. A lot of Ralph Lauren and J. Press, new and vintage.

    A great exhibit, all in all. Worth checking out.
