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.

Ithaca is a leading style center for college clothing and starts style trends long before other cities "know what it's all about." Trends of ladies apparel started in Ithaca include jeans, weejun loafers, turtle neck sweaters, and pea jackets. Men's trends started here would be C.P.O. shirts, imported Shetland crew sweaters, 3 inch rep ties, and bold plaid sport jackets.
