Popeye and “Take Ivy 2016” (No.10)
And that’s just the cover! The book had plenty to offer the reader inside as well, with photos documenting the fashion at all eight schools. Personally, I like the Princeton and Brown looks. Princeton was a famously fashionable school back then, and apparently it still is today. Brown’s campus isn’t as large as the others, but the vibe is unbeatable, and the students of today are even better dressed than they were back then.
By the way, all eight of the colleges are still among the best on the East Coast. Now that’s tradition.
