W. David Marx, who recently gave us his interview with “Take Ivy” author Toshiyuki Kuroso, today shared on Ivy Style’s Facebook page his Pinterest devoted to Japanese Ivy books he’s discovered. It’s another fascinating glimpse into Japan’s longstanding reverence for American natural-shouldered clothing.

Marx’s research also uncovered the photo below, from a 1965 issue of the magazine Men’s Club, depicting a guest at the Tokyo release party for book and film “Take Ivy.”
