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.

Ivy-Inspired, 1964

Seersucker, madras, linen - three of the big summer looks in men's sportswear: (l. to r.) Novel seersucker plaid with red Haggar slacks; Cricketeer's multi-colored traditional jacket in Dacron and wool and Champion gold slacks; and Gordon-Ford's linen jacket in red and off-white stripes with red slacks by Corbin.


Ebony magazine - April 1964

Nice post!
Seersuccer and madras forever!
I wonder how come men, young or old, rarely, if ever, wear them.
