{Take Ivy}

Take Ivy was shot on the campuses of eight Ivy League universities and was originally published in Japan in 1965. The book has quite a cult following among the preppy bloggers and fashion designers. The Trad was even nice enough to scan his vintage copy and share it with his readers. But now, Powerhouse Books has translated the original Japanese text and is reissuing this aesthetic overload of prep style. The photos also illustrate how classic well made clothing never goes out of style. Take Ivy is definitely the BMOC of books!

Avaiable in Amazon.com. Go directly to the book.
