 Inspired by our frigid Northeastern temperatures, I performed a Google search for snowy campuses and found some lovely images. Forget the crappy, icy, snowy mess outside your door and daydream over the beauty of snow-covered traditional architecture at institutions of higher learning.

There’s smoke on your computer screen, thanks to this selection of ads from the late ’40s and ’50s, mostly from the Daily Princetonian and Yale Daily News.

Leave a comment if this post inspires any of you young men to take up the briar. Chens started at age 21. — CS & CC (Continue)

After nearly six months of silence, the blog known as The Ivy League Look — where commentary by the anonymous curator is “kept to a minimum” — came back with a post yesterday with the 1965 ad above for campus clothes from Benoits.

Head over there to check out the well organized collection of advertisements, photos and articles related to the Ivy heyday.

Ages ago in 2014, the blog Oxford Cloth Button Down shared a selection of calendar images by the Japanese artist Hiroshi Watatani, whose most recognized image in Tradsville is probably the one above. We used it here in our post on the Gucci loafer’s 60th anniversary.

In case you missed the calendar, here it is. It was made in 2012 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of a retailer called Select Store Septis. But please don’t use it as a dress code: always let the weather be your guide. — CC

Somehow I don’t think Benjamin Braddock looked like this much longer after the film ends.
