Ivy-Style.com was founded October 1, 2008 by Christian Chensvold, a New York-based writer whose work has appeared in L’Uomo Vogue, Robb Report, The LA Times Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, RalphLauren.com, Rugby.com, The Men’s Book, NYTimes.com, AskMen.com, Esquire.com, and many other publications. He is also the founder of Dandyism.net and FineArtsLA.com, a contributing editor at The Rake, and covers digital marketing for Yahoo! Chensvold attended Cal State Fullerton on a fencing scholarship, where he was conference champion while studying English.
Featured columnist Richard Press is the grandson of J. Press founder Jacobi Press, and worked at the family company from 1959-1991, untimately serving as president. He also spent four years as president and CEO of FR Tripler & Company. A graduate of Dartmouth, he currently resides on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Special correspondent G. Bruce Boyer attended Moravian College and Lehigh University, where he took a master’s degree in English. He has served as men’s fashion editor of Town & Country, and is currently a contributing editor at The Rake. Boyer is also the author of several books on menswear, including the 1985 classic “Elegance.” His latest tome, on Gary Cooper, will be published in October 2011.
Seventy-seven-year-old Elder Statesman Bill Stephenson graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1954. After serving in the Air Force, he spent 40 years in the insurance industry, ultimately as marketing vice president of Aetna Life and Casualty. He presently resides in Princeton, NJ, frequently audits courses at the university, and gives walking tours for the Princeton Tour Company.
Contributing writer W. David Marx is a journalist living in Tokyo whose work has appeared in GQ, Brutus, Nylon and Best Music Writing 2009, among other publications. He is currently Chief Editor of web journal Néojaponisme and formerly an editor of Tokion and the Harvard Lampoon.
Contributing writer Zachary DeLuca is based in Cambridge. He has recently returned to his native soil after studies abroad in Scotland, where he received his Masters Degree in English Literature from the University of Edinburgh. He also holds a BA in English from Boston University. His interest in mid-century menswear arose after a chance encounter with a vintage gabardine suit, which he promptly wore to pieces and then vowed to find as many more as possible. An avid collector of clothing, he can be found combing the racks of J.Press and the local thrift store with equal relish. When off-duty, he enjoys a general excess of corduroy, single-malt scotch and pipe smoke.
Contributing writer Taliesin prefers to write under a nom de plume due to his position in the Federal Government. A Southerner, Taliesin grew up wearing Duck Head khakis and Sperry Topsiders without socks, but always admired his military officer father’s Harris Tweed sportcoats and knit ties. Taliesin acquired a taste for 3/2 sack suits while in graduate school at Cornell and Harvard. Based in Washington, he enjoys visiting New England and returning home to the South whenever possible, and finds the two regions surprisingly similar, despite their remarkably different accents.
Sponsors of Ivy-Style’s Battle of the Wits giveaways have included J. Crew, LL Bean, J. Press, Bills Khakis and Sperry Top-Sider.
