“Take Ivy” is an out of print book from the 60s (1965) displaying a collection of photographs by Japanese photographer Teruyoshi Hayashida. It’s especially interesting now that the ivy prep look is back (for men at least). See scans from A Continuous Lean
I found some more Japanese Ivy obsession here – Men’s Club’s Ivy Special dated a little later 1975-1980… oh dorks. kinda hot and pretty hilarious.
They even had a section about “Brown vs Cornell”, the Ivys no one cares about. Of course, if you’re talking about style… Brown’s the clear winner. People at Cornell just wear Abercrombie or if you’re an engineer then you wear those free tshirts you get when you sign up for a credit card.
I tried to find a picture to demonstrate the “no style” but had a hard time because I guess I hung out with “ravers” (which style wise perhaps is even worse than Abercrombie..? haha). I found some decent ones that reminded me how pretty the campus was and make me wish I took more pictures….
