We haven’t had anything to classify as Ivy Trendwatch in some time, but today the UK edition of GQ Style unveiled a video, apparently of a photo shoot entitled “Jocks & Nerds.” It features a campus setting with penny loafers and white socks, bicycles and sweaters with class year, plus the usual tedious model antics presented in a quick-edit format.
According to this page on the magazine’s website, “See the most stylish undergrads of Harvard, Yale and Brown flying the flag for preppy spirit in an Ivy League editorial.”
Apparently the fashion shoot is not available on the website, but I was able to find one shot on British GQ’s Instagram page:
