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.

There is nothing about this that screams "Ivy" but I liked the artwork. Most everything else from this period is exceptionally drab save for the HS&M ads. It's getting harder to find anything interesting to put on this blog!

That building in the background sure looks a bit like the old Chicago Water Tower. Great image.
