Here is a look at an an interesting book by a forward thinking Japanese photographer T.Hayashida, who In the late sixties, traveled throughout the northeastern United States stopping at each of the Ivy League schools to document the style of the era. The resulting book, cryptically titled Take Ivy, is a depiction of the preppy ivy league look in it’s rawest form. The photo book was out of print until a few years ago when a small run was re-released, only to immediately sell out. The people over at continiousLean tried to recreate the spirit of the book through the following scans. Further proof that preppy / Ivy League style transcends time and trends. Take a look below.
