U.S. Modifies Continental Look, 1960

Subdued olive green jacket of a fine wool basket weave has Ivy League
look. Eagle Brand jacket is trimmed with gray pearl buttons.

"Several seasons ago, the Italian look in men's fashions swept the country, threatening to replace the Ivy League styles. But the Italian and Ivy came together in the Continental look and now this year more home influence has made the newest look the American Continental."


Ebony - April 1960, p. 132
