HAYASHIDA, Teruyoshi. Take Ivy.

(Tokyo): Fujingahosha, 1965. First edition. Large octavo. Rare and desirable copy of this legendary cult book, the definitive document of the Ivy Style. Upon publication the book set off an explosion of American-influenced “Ivy Style” fashion among students in the trendy Ginza shopping district of Tokyo. The product of four sartorial style enthusiasts, Take Ivy is a collection of candid photographs shot on the campuses of America’s elite, Ivy League universities. The series focuses on men and their clothes, perfectly encapsulating the unique academic fashion of the era. Whether lounging in the quad, studying in the library, riding bikes, in class, or at the boathouse, the subjects of Take Ivy are impeccably and distinctively dressed in the finest American-made garments of the time. This is a very good copy, some light toning to page edges in a good plus dust jacket with a jagged closed tear to top edge, some chipping and wear. A presentable copy of this, one of the most iconic fashion books of all time.
