The Ivy Style exhibit just opened in NYC at the FIT Museum on 27th and 7th Ave. If you have time, GO, you will not regret it. The exhibit was curated with aplomb by Patricia Mears and Bruce Boyer, both heavyweight fashion historians. There are some amazing pieces from a variety of sources, J Press very kindly lent some fantastic sport jackets, as did Ralph Lauren, Bruce himself, Thom Browne, etc.
.
What was particularly cool was how the exhibition had items from the beginnings of  the Ivy Style period all the way up to modern items today that still fit within the style, in recognition that it is very much alive and kicking. I think for classic menswear guys like myself, it is easy to forget that like it or not, things will develop and change as they are viewed through the next designer’s eye. When you see the historical and the modern pieces, side by side and sometimes mixed together in one outfit, there is a feeling of not only the significance of the style as it persists sixty years on, but also the successors to the original look paying their dues.
.
Highlight for me, the striped, piped, very unstructured school blazers. 
.
Women’s Wear Daily has some great photos and coverage.
