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.

What kind of an article would SI have to run today to report on the "Sporting Look?" Great article. How many tweed jackets will be sold this year? Probably not 10 million.

"Sporting look" jeans, t-shirts and sneakers, I guess. :-(
