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.

Harvard Business School, 1970

"The Charles River separates the Business School from the rest of the university, and so do the lifestyles. On the college side, we have the beards and the mustaches and the poor-boy clothes that have become as much a uniform as gray flannels and khaki pants were a generation ago. The Business School types are still coming to class in Brooks Brothers suits and button-down white shirts. They look like sub-assistant secretaries in the Nixon administration, and, as a matter of fact, the student body was heavily for Nixon in 1968."
