Ivy Style herein presents a post both timely and nostalgic: namely, scenes from kinder, gentler Republican National Conventions.* These mostly date from the heyday of the Ivy League Look, as well as 1980, the year of Reagan/Bush and “The Official Preppy Handbook.”
Look for neat haircuts, pipes, sack jackets and rep ties, and a future presidential hopeful. — CC
* Ivy Style does not presume to tell you how to dress nor how to vote. We consider both John F. Kennedy and George HW Bush icons in the pantheon of prep politicos. Next week we will do a similar post on the Democratic National Convention. If you feel microaggressed or triggered, see your doctor right away.
