"Black Ivy: A Revolt in Style" explores a period in American history when Black men adopted and redefined the clothing associated with the Ivy League Look, making it cool, edgy, and unpredictable.

The book showcases figures in Black culture, including jazz musicians, visual artists, poets, architects, philosophers, and writers, who embraced and transformed the classic Ivy Look.

The iconic elements of this style, such as the Oxford cloth button-down shirt, hand-stitched loafer, soft shoulder three-button jacket, and repp tie, are celebrated.

The book features the work of prominent photographers and image-makers, offering a visual tribute to the influence of Black culture on fashion during a crucial period in American history.
