Give Ivy January 20, 2019 In the spirit of Japanese photo book “Take Ivy,” here are some photographic gifts of Princeton students courtesy of Time/LIFE.
What strikes me about these photos is the great variety–of lapel widths, trouser fit, collars, sweaters. 1950 is an interesting point of reference for looking at the history of Ivy style as it was worn by ordinary people. Sort of a turning point or a transitional period between the looser, peharps pleated, drapiness of 40s Ivy and the slimmed down, high-water narrowness of Ivy in the mid 50s and early 60s. Great selection of shots.
I got 404 errors on all but the second picture. Anybody else?
I must have been lucky, whiskydent, no 404 errors this time!
What strikes me about these photos is that unlike the Japanese fascination with men’s posteriors in “Take Ivy” there are no such photos here.
