In the past week, two big newspapers both came out with stories on a pair of the most legendary shops in the history of the Ivy League Look. Yesterday we looked at the New York Times’ piece on Brooks Brothers in the wake of its 200th anniversary, and today we visit a Boston Globe feature on the sale of The Andover Shop.
The store is referred to as “a salon for jazz artists and literati,” and Ivy-Style.com snags a mention:
“There are echoes of your past that you stumble across and you feel a level of comfort. You walk into The Andover Shop and it hasn’t changed,” said Geoffrey Precourt, a longtime editor who frequented Davidson’s salons back in their 1970s heyday. “It’s more than blazers and khakis.”

Fingers crossed the store finds a sympathetic buyer who will keep this singular institution going for decades to come. — CC
