H-E-double hockey sticks

The man from Brooks Brothers: Vintage 1980s Brooks Brothers "346" kelly green hopsack blazer,acquired through trade; Brooks Brothers pinpoint oxford shirt, made in USA, thrift store; Brooks Brothers navy chinos with embroidered kelly green whales, thrift store; J. Press ribbon belt: gingham square, cut from an old shirt.

It is my great honor to declare "Go To Hell" season officially open. Gentlemen, do your worst!

Hi G,
If I saw you on the street, your outfit would just make me smile and I would probably try to high five you (even though I have never tried to high five a complete stranger).
Save the whales!
Fondly-Lisa

"Gentlemen" do your worst? Ahem. Let's not forget us ladies. We like our embroidered critters as well. Other than the obvious female oversight, excellent post as usual. Just bought a new pair this week - navy with sailboats. Can't wait.

Synchronicity? Ivy Style's newest post is about an article in The Onion about red pants. Ivy Style's article features red emblazoned pants from Castaway Clothing.

Now, when is ADG gonna chime in?

Hi, cool outfit. Can I ask what the 346 designates please? I have a BB blazer which I would guess is from the same period, but it's navy - also with a 346 label.
Cheers, Mark

The whales look a completely different shade from the blazer. They can't both be "Kelly green".

I'd describe the blazer as 'forest green' or Phthalo green or perhaps Brunswick green. Then again maybe the colour looks different on the photo than in real life.

The Only GTH items I have currently are Nantucket Reds and Vintage Walk Over White Bucks. Might have to step up the game a bit.

this is for Anonymous 10:42 about the origin of the "346" line. I believe this is a homage to the street address for the their flagship store on Madison Ave......" 346 Madison Avenue ".

Great outfit! Love the green whales. The green, blue and white combonation remind me of the old Hartford Whalers. I miss the Whalers!
