Personal recollection[edit]

I recall in Melbourne Australia "Ivy League" clothing as a rather smart line of apparel, which included cuffless light grey slacks in a 'serge' type material, which was teamed with buff coloured desert boots, a button down collared long sleeve shirt with a vertical stripe patterned in muted darkish colours (green, grey, burgundy, black, etc., in combinations). Jackets were also available in a check pattern (plaid, made up of dark green, grey and black (rather like one of the Scottish tartans). There was also vests that could be worn as well. Of course this ensemble was topped off with an "Ivy League" hair style........a shortish cut, with part, modest side burns and a tapered rear. Despite the colours the whole affect was 'muted, was 'loungish and very comfortable. I should have kept mine; though I would have trouble fitting into it now.

Incidentally, there was a TV program that I recall hosted by two guys, who's names were Delo & Daly, and that was the name of the show. I think they were from the U.S. and though I don't recall anything about the show, other than it was a sort of comic routine. However, I am fairly certain that one or both of them dressed in the Ivy League style. The period would have been in the late 1960's.

Why is this page now being defaced by "Trads"? Their own entry to Wikipedia was deleted as it was judged to all be made-up online nonsense. Why are they now trying to colonise this page with their revisionist reactionary worldview? They would do better to learn about clothes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:12, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

I have to say again that 'Trad' is most certainly NOT a revival of the Ivy League style. It only claims to be to give itself some credibility. It was made up online in 2004 by trolls as is well known and is merely a dull stale echo of a sliver of the real Ivy league style. The real vandalism on this page is from those who are using it to promote 'Trad'. Wiki has already deleted the 'Trad' page here - Why then allow 'Trad' to be promoted on another page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:37, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Ivy League and Mods[edit]

I think it would be interesting to explore the link between Ivy League Clothing and the Mod Movement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:09, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
