Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

A lovingly researched guide to the classic clothing worn by the Ivy League university fraternity in the 1960s, a look that a certain stylish breed of men have never grown out of. In their book, Londoners Graham Marsh and JP Gaul, enthusiasts of all things button-down and cool, dissect the key elements. --Daily Telegraph

Présentation de l'éditeur

Before the "Preppy Look," there was the "Ivy Look." Democratic, stylish, and comfortable, the Ivy Look's impact and influence can be seen to this day in the clothes of designers such as Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani, as well as in the more proletarian offerings of L. L. Bean, J. Crew, Dockers, and Banana Republic. From the button-down hip of Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, and Miles Davis to the enduring style of the cast of Mad Men — they all knew the true cool of the Ivy Look. The Ivy Look digs deep into the vaults to produce the ultimate guide to the genuine article, featuring new, still-life shots of original clothing and accessories plus key examples of the cover art of Blue Note, Stax, Motown, and Atlantic Records. Contemporary magazine advertisements, French New Wave, and key American movie posters and new illustrations bring the Ivy Look into sharp focus.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Entertaining guide with its own distinct perspective 24 octobre 2011
Par Andrew S. Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Maybe it's in part because I was so disappointed by Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style that "The Ivy Look," which arrived in the same box, seemed so rewarding. "The Ivy Style" is an entertainingly written and well-informed book, but it's also very much affected by who its authors are and where they come from. It's important to understand that in order to really get the most out of this "pocket guide."

One of my criticisms of "Preppy" was that it relied so heavily on commercial advertising for its illustrations. "Ivy Look," too, is packed full of ad images, as at least one other reviewer has pointed out. So why not rip this book too? The answer is in the second paragraph of the Foreword: "It seems entirely appropriate that the authors came to learn and fall under the spell of the Ivy look through exposure to three quintessential American art forms - cinema, advertising and modern jazz" (p. 12). The "Ivy" Marsh and Gaul are discussing here is not American "Ivy League" style straight from the well, so to speak, but rather a particular English interpretation and expression of "Ivy." More than just a preference for what clothes to wear or, on a deeper level, a "look" with various ethnic, geographic, and sociopolitical signifiers, this English Ivy is a deliberate "lifestyle" choice. That is the explanation for why things like Vespas and Marlboro cigarettes, which don't have any particular Ivy League or preppy association in the States, are lovingly included in "The Ivy Look."

(If the sort of analysis in the above paragraph is of interest to you, I encourage you to find the review of this book on a popular Ivy Style blog. Google "Clothes Mad: The English Ivy Obsession" and read not only the review but as many of the comments as you can stomach. Me, I've reached my daily limit of lit-crit exegesis.)

Once you know more or less where the authors are coming from and take their perspective into account, "The Ivy Look" is a fun and informative read. The prose is as stylish as the clothes and cars, and their recommendations, not only for clothing brands but also movies and jazz albums (if you're into those things, which I am) are well taken. And I was pleased to see how closely my Dockers K-1s resemble the "original 1950s U.S. Army-issue khakis" beautifully shown on pages 116-117. You may not ever use this as a "pocket guide" in the sense of carrying it with you to The Andover Shop or J. Press, and if you're a real devotee of this style, there may not even be much in here that's new (save for the aforementioned induction of Vespas and Jean-Paul Belmondo into "Ivy"). But as a celebration of a particular interpretation of "classic American clothing," I think this has a lot to recommend it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well analyzed! 19 janvier 2012
Par Owned and Loved by Schnauzers - Publié sur Amazon.com

I love this book! The authors have done a beautiful job of defining IVY, by compiling advertisements from those who actually manufactured the `IVY Look' back in the day. The reader is able to see what the look was, that defined the IVY style, and because the actual advertisements are used in the book, the reader knows who made the IVY items, back in the day! The trendsetters are all there!

Why are some people so taken with IVY? The author says it all on page 20, "It is a wardrobe that bestows tradition and elegance upon those who were not born into backgrounds of tradition and elegance." Well put.

I wish the authors would now do a book, that focuses on not only finding, but showing interiors of some mens' (and womens') shops in the United States, that continue to offer `IVY' style.

I am referring to fine mens- and womens wear stores that not ONLY offer the style of IVY --- but the QUALITY found in the original IVY styles. Many stores offer oxford button-downs; but the thread count tells the story on quality. The missing interfacing on modern-day collars tells an even bigger story on the quality that is not manufactured in now days.

There are some manufacturer's of fine quality clothing still around, but finding the stores that carry these high-end items is becoming more difficult every day.

The above isn't the fault of the authors, obviously.

But since these authors quite obviously recognize the correct IVY style when they see it - their next book could tell us where to find it, but in the U.S. please.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Classic American Clothing Styles 6 juin 2014
Par Edna Stewart - Publié sur Amazon.com

I love this book. However, if you are one looking for words to read about the Ivy, well, there is not much. This is more of a coffee table style book which has excellent pictures and illustrations from the 50's, 60's. This is a great example of an illustration book. The styles to see are visual and gives a real idea of style. this is great for someone into fashion design to add the classics of America to new styles created. The book is on a coffee table in my office and has started several conversations, I always have to check to see if it has not grown feet and walked away! I recommend this book. This book is a conversational starter.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I could do without some of the goofy British commentary but the period ads and record sleeves are fun. Great resource for anyone 13 mars 2015

Neat little book; I could do without some of the goofy British commentary but the period ads and record sleeves are fun. Great resource for anyone learning more about the roots of Ivy/Prep style.
