Great article. I think that there is a subtle semantic distinction between Ivy League and Ivy Style. One is for the established upper/upper middle class, the other is more democratic. Richard Press mentions this in one of his articles in the J.Press threading the needle book. He claims that some young men were referred to as shoes, "white bucks" I take where the Ivy League alpha males, and "weenies" were the weejun wearing undergrads who may have been G.I bill admissions or not.

Please forgive the grammer mistakes etc.
