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.

Sir: That is NOT squash-it's racquets-a somewhat similar game, played on a larger court, with a faster ball, and a racquet with a larger handle.Thank you anyhow for the nice pics.
