In another attempt at tweaking the Trad, here is a two-button darted Brooks jacket, a Brooks point-collared shirt and the classic Brooks tie; forward-pleated flannels from Ralph of Long Island and Allen Edmonds Sanfords. (Plus the usual fripperies.)
All these elements save the shoes would not pass muster as strict Ivy elements, yet I think it would be hard to call it "fashion-forward" or - gasp - "Italian."
I'm not too sure about the grey/olive combination, however.
