Our 8th collaboration project with Graham Marsh,
co-author of ‘The Ivy Look’.

Back in the 1960s, Graham Marsh was fascinated with the world of jazz and Ivy Style.
Fifty years later in 2012, he came across Kamakura Shirts and our Oxford button-down shirts, reminding him of the 60's.
Our collaboration began when Kamakura Shirts opened in New York on Madison Avenue.
Since then, he has continued to design four unique new shirts for our Vintage Ivy Collection every year,
as we strive to rise above all expectations.

A new collection for this year has arrived.
Take a look and enjoy the nostalgia of the Ivy Style heyday

 

*Size Update Notice*

Starting this season, we have slightly changed the measurements.
Please refer at the bottom for more information.
Our Tokyo and New York sizes have been combined to create one unique, inch-based Vintage Ivy pattern.

Additionally, the pattern is box-cut without any shoulder inclination, to stay faithful to the American trad silhouette.

BLUE BENGAL STRIPE
"From the university campus to Madison Avenue, the blue Bengal stripe is elegantly timeless. Kamakura has made this traditional stripe button-down shirt with all the fine details expected by lovers of the Ivy look."
The Bengal Stripe goes well with a wide range of styles. It can be used to remind you of the style from the Good Old Days or brushed up for a modern look. I think I’m in the mood for a pair of light-brown-pleated trousers right now.

LIGHTWEIGHT OXFORD BUTTON-DOWN WITH FRENCH PLACKET
“Both Paul Newman and John F. Kennedy wore button-down Ivy shirts with a French placket during the 1960s. At Kamakura we figure that if its good enough for them, it’s good enough for us so we made this Vintage Ivy shirt in white lightweight oxford cloth. It’s a rare thing – get it while you can.”
Like it says, a button-down Oxford with a French placket and it’s rare! This shirt can be worn casually and does not exquisitely have to be worn as a single piece, but also with a light jacket and a knit tie for a more stylish look.

GREEN OXFORD BUTTON-DOWN
"On the cover of his 1958 album Milestones, Miles Davis subverted a standard issue garment that Ivy Leaguers claimed their own by wearing an immaculate green oxford cloth button-down shirt. It was the Ivy look with attitude. This is Kamakura’s tribute to an unassailable hip musician."
The soft rugged green color pairs well with the vintage rugged denim. Try wearing it with brown, beige, or white trousers and you’ll get a clean look.

This may be a difficult shirt to form an outfit with but try pairing it with bold colored pants to complete an urban style. We definitely recommend a light pink!
