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.

High noon - Bermuda, 1958

High noon - At Bermuda's Coral Beach Club the blaze of day discloses many tips for the southbound man. Note again the sports slacks,this time checked- a real trend that will become established this winter. Note also the knit bathing suits, the palm-frond "Tyroleans", the trim Panama, and the return of seersucker. Remember that, within the bounds of good taste, one can dress more colorfully beneath the southern sun. Remember, as well, that many native sports clothes you'll be tempted to buy are like some Italian wines - they travel badly.
