Take Ivy


David Colman of the NY Times mentioned The Trad in yesterdays paper. Since I've done a horrible job of lay out with this blog - - so bad that I have a hard time finding old posts - - I thought it would help to post the Take Ivy images again.

The ivies are nothing but degree mills now. Tintin were you a whiffenpoof?

My goodness that photo looks like Pyne Hall at Princeton (My goodness is a very High WASP idiom...). Home to the Comparative Literature department. We were there just a few weeks ago for graduation. But I am guessing that it's not Princeton, it's just some other ivy-covered hall. They all look alike, after a while. Right?

Congrats on the well-deserved mention in the NY Times. I'm glad that the Take Ivy photo crew was out and about taking photos in 1965.

I just love this book, and any simply designed image-driven piece before over-caffeinated MBAs got wordy and photographers got crews and stylists. Fly-on-the-wall photojournalism doesn't exist anymore. It's all in-your-face now. Just like the "world culture" at large. Thank you, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, et al.

So great, well deserved...

And what a great book. It captured something that was more fleeting than a lot of trads want to admit. I was introduced first to by Ivy Style, another great resource.

Those photos are (and of course your whole blog) bloody inspiring for preppy junkies, like myself. There is truly a preppy epidemic in the "fashion" world right now. Here in Sweden for example, the style is very popular. Every other teenager wears khakis, button down shirts and cable knitted sweaters instead of baggy jeans and track suit jackets.

Thanks for posting these again. Im sort of curious what sort of traffic boost you got from the NYT mention.

A mention in the Times? You're cool, man.

Tintin, others, question: according to my father, an ivy leaguer in the early 50s, students went to class in suit and tie, these shots look very casual. When did the informality start??
