I'm not sure about the tie worn with short sleeves. Was this common then?

common? probably not by upper echelon execs... ---notice the trimmer fit, i would suspect Brooks were fuller cut then.. - great ad

I bought that Gant batiste oxford - light blue - 1967. Impossible to keep pressed; like thin linen.

The "half sleeves" were an innovation that season, as I, as considered quite sharp.

Yes, ties with short/half sleeves were, in retrospect, geeky but you need to remember that most people did not live or work in air conditioned surroundings in 1967.

Your post reminded me of the time when I owned some Gant buttondown shirts. It was more than thirty years ago.
Great post! Thanks.
