Collegiate fashion, vintage varsity jackets, Letterman sweaters, and Ivy League prep – Take Ivy documents it all. This book, published in Japan in 1965, is famed for starting the trend of “Ivy Style” dressing among students of the Ginza district in Tokyo. It also presents, quite nicely might I add, a romanticised portrayal of college life. Once hard to source, this book is being translated and republished for a United States release on August 31. I’d love to get my hands on a copy.
