Review quote

"We at "GQ" have found endless inspiration in these pages, and designers have too." "

"Time has done little to dim the allure of "Take Ivy," with its guileless snapshots of handsome, fit and presumably bright young lugs disporting themselves in dining halls, on the College Green at Dartmouth, along Nassau Street in Princeton and in Harvard Yard." "
New York Times"

"A fun addition to your shelf of sailing manuals and Kennedy biographies."
"Daily Candy"
