The Ivy League Store

When one thinks of the phrase "Ivy League", the thought of the traditional Ivy League store cannot be far behind. And, when one thinks of the traditional Ivy League store, one must think of the halls of J Press.
Sadly, the Ivy League store that we all lust for is nothing more than a fading memory. Even though the mighty J Press still maintains a stuffy persona, it doesn't cater to Ivy League students anymore. Truthfully, the Ivy League we talk about has not existed for many years. Ivy League schools have been overrun by foreigners and the sweat pant wearing crowd. I dare say that any of the Ivy League schools are the least bit preppy with only Princeton being the exception.
Yes, if only students wore jackets and ties to class, and if only the world which we try to create via the Internet really existed.
