Welcome to The Ivy League Look

This blog presents a historical view through articles, photographs, reminiscences, and advertisements, of an American style of men's fashion of the mid-20th century known as "The Ivy League Look" or "The Ivy Look."

This blog will not present modern-day iterations of this "look"; it will be shown in its original context as an American style worn during this specific era. Author commentary will be kept to a minimum.

This is not a commercial site and links to commercial sites will not be posted.

Fantastic photos. Does anyone know which issue of Life? Or, the location and people depicted in the photo set?

I've amended the post to include the LIFE article in which one of these photos appeared. There is no information on the location or people in the photo.
