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.

This is not a commercial site and links to commercial sites will not be posted.

Hathaway Batiste Oxford, 1959

(click to enlarge)

"This popular Hathaway button-down looks like oxford cloth, has half the bulk, but is in no sense thin or commonplace."


The Milwaukee Sentinal - 5/4/59

With thanks to Old School.

M and M was an excellent Ivy shop, where I shopped at U of Wisconsin in early 60's. Hathaway shirt man was created by the legendary David Ogilvy, a chipp customer.
