The Ivy Look : Classic American Clothing - An Illustrated Pocket Guide, Paperback

The Ivy Look : Classic American Clothing - An Illustrated Pocket Guide Paperback


A pictorial celebration of the clothing and accessories that dominated the American male dress code from 1955 to 1965.

Democratic, stylish and comfortable, the Ivy Look was the height of cool, worn by presidents and hipsters alike, and its impact and influence can be seen to this day in the clothes of designers such as Ralph Lauren, and in the continuing popularity of classics like the Harrington jacket and Levi's 501s.

Digging deep into the vaults, the book combines new illustrations and still life shots of original clothing and accessories with contemporary magazine advertisements, key movie posters and album cover art, and photographs of icons like Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and Miles Davis to bring the Ivy Look into sharp focus.
