Take Ivy was first published in Japan in 1965. Once published, this particular book set off an explosion of American-influenced "Ivy Style" fashion among many people, mainly students in the trendy Ginza shopping district of Tokyo. People embraced the "Ivy Style" and made it their own, living the preppy lifestyle.
Take Ivy is now considered a definitive document of this particular style, and rare original copies are highly sought after by “trad” devotees worldwide. The book released 8/31 is now readily avaliable in the English language!
Another new favorite," True Prep", was released on September 7th.
