Street Etiquette presents The Black Ivy

October 4, 2010 Leave a comment

This is my first post dedicated to fashion and expect more from The Truth Renaissance soon. The gentleman at Street Etiquette recently teamed up with Unabashedly Prep to bring you The Black Ivy. Here is an excerpt about the project:

The Black Ivy serves as a tribute to the first black colleges that paved the way for our generation and created a common ground for hardworking, likeminded individuals. What the original Black Ivy league did for folks many years ago is what we strive to do today with individuals that inspire, motivate and spark the creativity of  beings around them.

As a graduate of Morehouse and a lover of fashion (particularly vintage clothing), I can appreciate what these young men represent and bring to the table with this project.
