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.

In "...a world full of grown-ups walking the streets in children's clothes and pyjamas",

to quote Giuseppe,


your blog provides us with a breath of fresh air: nostalgic, entertaining, and educational.

Thanks for fighting the good fight to preserve that which is certainly worth preserving.
