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.

Step up close and sniff real ivy, 1965

(click to enlarge)

Notice with what unaffected ease you take on today's trim lines. Natural shoulders are smooth and comfortable - and carefully Bond-tailored to stay that way. Lap seams and hook vent are exactly right to the fraction of an inch. Trousers hang straight and slim. You're looking at Ivy "summa cum laude."

[Ed. comment: Sniff? No, thank you. I'm more of a visual learner.]
