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.

Brooks Brothers' Distinctive No. 4 Model, 1952

(click to enlarge)

This good-looking two-button suit is a variation of our famous No. 1 model, and is favored by men who like a slightly built-up shoulder, a more tailored appearance in the cut of the jacket, and pleated trousers.
