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.

Digby was a professor and good friend to my father, brother and family.

Back when I used to blog I scanned in a fantastic article that serves as an informative introduction to a true gentleman and scholar.


If you can find his books they're worth a read. The term "they don't make them like they used to" was written about Digby.

I've read all of his books. MLS, have you read Sporting Gentlemen? Baltzell was a great man.
