    American Ivy: Chapter 2

    So where does Ivy begin? The short answer: Princeton University. The long answer is a spiral that takes us from a 1940s Chinese prison camp, to the raucous party culture of 1920s London, to the docks of downtown New York City after The War of 1812.

    American Ivy: Chapter 3

    The look of the elite somehow becomes the look for everyone. And as more and more people are taking on Ivy, it only becomes cooler and cooler. Which goes against everything I thought I knew about trends.

    American Ivy: Chapter 4

    American Ivy: Chapter 5

    Ralph Lauren ascends. And so does a slender little joke book that no one expected to be a colossal, massive bestseller. Just in time for the secret fashion revolution of the 1980s that no one ever talks about.

    American Ivy: Chapter 6

    As the 80s turns into the 90s, preppy is everywhere. All over the planet. In the United States AND Japan. And sure, preppy sort of morphs into business casual. But it also turns into something else. Something way more fashionable.

One of the best podcasts out there

I love everything about this podcast. She has an amazing voice for podcasting. The content is interesting and educational. The music is perfectly complementary to the vibe of her podcast. I love the special guests she has on, and the editing and insertion of the comments during a podcast are flawless. I can’t wait to listen to more of these!

My new favourite!

Avery is a great story teller, and the third season is mind blowing.

TIL Clothes are way more then Clothes

From The Sex Pistols to Aloha shirts to Prep clothing I never thought I would be so absorbed in the story of clothing and how it is a lot more then just what we chose to wear for the day.
