So this popped up on our radar a few weeks ago from the questionably titled blog The Art of Manliness. Basically, it’s an article from a 1954 issue of the questionably titled True Magazine for Men which showcases this guy, Don, who is a senior at Columbia.  He is transformed from unfashionable preppy 1950s Ivy Leaguer to fashionable preppy 1950s Ivy Leaguer with the addition of fresh new threads (and some color photography). It starts to get real, however, when Don not only shows his new look off for the camera, but starts spontaneously dancing around with a buddy in front of Hamilton.

So basically for all you freshpeoplemen wondering how to dress at this place we call Columbia, this is how you do it.
