i wish there was a description that went along with these photos, all i know is that they are titled “plaid jackets” and they’re from 1950. perhaps the plaid jackets was some kind of boy’s club at an ivy league university, you had to wear tartan waistcoats and jaunty newsboy caps to be a member. cool.

all images from life magazine


  1. Stunning pics. 50s fashion fascinates me a lot. Imagine boys these days dressed up like this all the time. I can’t imagine it.

    • i think if men still dressed like this i’d notice them more! certainly more appealing than underwear sticking out of baggy jeans…. for me anyway ;)

  2. This to me looks a lot like Princeton’s campus. Possibly? Wishful thinking?
