Nice to see Men’s Ex advocating tailoring and reviving your old garments instead of (or in addition to) buying new ones in their August issue.

The Bible of Ivy League Style in Japan..

..is getting re-released in August 2010.  Take Ivy is a 1960’s Japanese book documenting American Ivy League Style.  It has been out of print for some time fetching as much as $2000 for used copies.  The Re-release is only gonna cost $24.95!  I’m pretty excited to say the least.  This will look nice next to my copy of The Official Preppy Handbook on my bookshelf.

From Cnngo.com:

Even if you are not interested in the clothing or photos, you have to admit, “Take Ivy” is the perfect metaphor for 21st century globalization: Japanese fans will be buying an American reprint of a Japanese book about American style.
