This popover talk continues this week on the blog. I found an image that illustrates my ideal popover placket length, a cool popover blog post, another Ivy Etsy shop, and I have a few pics of my popover from Target to share.
I have stated my preference for a shorter placket on popovers before. I prefer 3 buttons. I am aware that this stance is in the minority. I am okay with that, but that is probably why they are hide to find. I didn’t find an example for sale, but I did find this image of Sidney Poitier in one (on a blog that is new to me called Placid Style). I think this popover looks sporty and casual. Exactly what I want out of a popover.

While the Placid Style blog is new to me the Placid Vintage Etsy store is not. I don’t thrift nearly as much as I used to, but I do use Esty to source some good deals. I primarily look for ties, but for those who wear a common there is a lot of good vintage Ivy stuff out there. This store has been a great resource for me. Add it to your list of places to look for vintage Ivy.
Last, but not least I have a few pics to share of my Target popover (Popover PSA). I thought might be helpful for those of you who are on the fence to see it in action. Overall I am satisfied. It is a touch smaller than I would like and the material is okay at best, but for $20 I have zero regrets. On the other hand the collar is much fuller than anticipated. I may even grab a backup.
Tune in nest week when I will probably talk about something other than popovers.
