A pictorial celebration of the clothing and accessories that dominated the American male dress code from 1955 to 1965. Democratic, stylish and comfortable, the Ivy Look was the height of cool, worn by presidents and hipsters alike, and its impact and influence can be seen to this day in the clothes of designers such as Ralph Lauren, and in the continuing popularity of classics like the Harrington jacket and Levi's 501s. Digging deep into the vaults, the book combines new illustrations and still life shots of original clothing and accessories with contemporary magazine advertisements, key movie posters and album cover art, and photographs of icons like Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and Miles Davis to bring the Ivy Look into sharp focus.

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)
An homage to this dress code, which Marsh admits has become an addiction. ( Independent)
If you are of modernist persuasion, have a love of the classic, need some sartorial tips or just want to know the heritage of ivy brands that are still doing swift business today among the current crop of hipsters, this book should be a nailed-on (or should that be buttoned-down?) purchase. As I said earlier, The Ivy Look isn't some kind of defining text, but it is an excellent guide to set you on a journey. On the evidence here, it's a journey I would recommend, even if you don't fancy going all the way. ( www.modculture.co.uk)
With preppy fashion's popularity as high as its turn-ups, this history of natty US dressing through vintage Mad Men-style posters and pictures of icons such as Paul Newman, it's classy, and small enough for your chino pockets. ( Short List)
