Take Ivy–or, when American fashion was awesome


A Continuous Lean has a great post with scans of T. Hayashida’s Take Ivy, an interesting, voyeuristic (and characteristically Japanese) photographic perspective on the fashion of 1960’s Ivy league students.

Let’s see which aspects of 1960’s fashion have made it through to today.

  • Canvas tennis shoes, worn without socks
  • Tight jeans and overwrought shirts
  • [Stupid] Plaid shorts
  • Sweaters worn over collared shirts
  • Overwrought sense of ‘carelessness’ to each and every article of clothing worn
