A New Take on an Old Black Aesthetic.

"We are the intellectual prep, preparing the steps for success dressed in the attire that evidently reflects an inner drive that can rival a sustenance farmer cultivating his harvest. So we sew the ivy, invoke the flavor and reap cool.."


I do love a well-dressed black man and the Black Ivy feature on the website Street Etiquette displays a variety of meticulously styled black men dressed to the nines. The feature is an ode to the roots of black academia, the variety of historically black colleges and universities.

The project is an exquisite entanglement of character, style, education, perspective and art to produce a new vantage point on an old aesthetic. One of the many facets of the black man is presented handsomely through an array of color and black-and-white photographs. Without further ado, please check out Black Ivy and then have a gander around Street Etiquette. You won't be disappointed.


  1. I so enjoyed reading your blog. I'm very proud of you keep up the excellent work. I enjoyed the Black Ivy website and my fav had to be the vintage black and white photo's from Howard.

    God Mommy ;-)
