We’re sure many of you have spend some time doing some shopping this post-Thanksgiving weekend which is why we’re throwing this out there in case you need a stocking stuffer for new book for your friends and partners. If they have not gotten their hands on the reprinted and English translated edition of Take Ivy, then gift them with a document of an important moment in fashion.

“Originally published in 1965 in Japan, the Take Ivy sparked a explosion of American “Ivy Style” in Tokyo. Photographer Teruyoshi Hayashida captured the spirit of 1960s student fashion with candid photographs taken in class, at the boathouse, and through the quads of Ivy League campuses. The photographer was joined in the book’s production by a trio of equally fashionable and savvy young men – Shosuke Ishizu, Toshiyuki Kuruso, and Hajime (Paul) Hasegawa. Their resulting work has gained wide recognition as the diffinitive document of the American prep style.

Amazon has them.
