Three museum exhibitions that explore male style, male fashion icons, and more.
Ivy Style at the Museum at FIT (on view through January 5, 2013) -- This exhibition celebrates the "Ivy League Look," arguably one of the most enduring clothing styles of the twentieth century. Historic fashions by Brooks Brothers, J. Press, and Chipp are displayed alongside contemporary designs by Ralph Lauren, Michael Bastian, and Thom Browne to show how the style has endured.

David Bowie Is at the Victoria Albert Museum (March 23 - July 28, 2013) -- An examination of David Bowie's extraordinary career and role as a cultural icon, this exhibition will feature more than 300 objects from the performer's personal archive.
