Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style book by Jeffrey Banks and Doria De la Chapelle
This one has come out of nowhere and as such, I've not had chance to get my hands on a copy yet. But on the face of it, the Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style book by Jeffrey Banks and Doria De la Chapelle is well worth checking out for fans of the look.
Not just words, the book also features iconic and never-before-published archival and editorial photographs and personal snapshots from 'the original Ivy elites', along with photographs and vintage ads illustrating the classic garments, plus features on retail pioneers such as J.Press and Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren.
Note that the book covers both men's and women's clobber (not just male gear). If you're good with that, £17.85 is the discounted price online.
