    glad to see this is in print, for us plebs unable to cough up $$$ for vintage copies on ebay.

    reprint of take ivy


    The mythologizing of this book is really hilarious:

    "Described by The New York Times as, "a treasure of fashion insiders," Take Ivy was originally published in Japan in 1965, setting off an explosion of American-influenced "Ivy Style" fashion among students in the trendy Ginza shopping district of Tokyo."

    The book was hardly a 'treasure' until a couple of years ago -- I remember Get Smart mentioning he bought a copy for <$20. They make it out to be some momentous event in Japanese pop cultural history, when the book was actually just promotional material for the clothing company VAN. (W. David Marx has a couple of interesting essays on this over at Ivy Style.)

    Not that the pictures aren't great, of course.

    just saw robbie's post about buying ROY jeans, and i mean every month there's a new brand being posted about here made from denim handcut by samurai blades and i wonder how they all exist

    Along the same lines, the number of sneakers that get released every day, week, month is absolutely mind boggling. As human beings, we are really unable to grasp that there are over 6 billion of us and we all wear shoes, pants, etc.

    re: GF dressing.

    I wish mine would wear slightly looser denim, at least at the bottom, and a bit less of the 2% elastene stuff. But she wears great dresses and shorts. And I wish she would try a good wedge.

    do your girlfriends/wives get pissed when you try to dress them up in slutty clothing?
    is that a wrong thing to want??


    It has to come from her, very few girls don't like to "slut it up" from time to time.

    Read this in The Titanic Awards, describing people a travel writing came across in Cannes: &quot;Dollar dripping dickheads.&quot; Ah, I know them well.
