What are some preppy/Ivy League brands that aren't mainstream like RL or Hilfiger? Better quality as well.
If you're looking for high quality, take a look at Incotex for chino's and J. M. Weston or Church's for loafers other shoes. For tops I think vintage is often a great option, it will contribute the most to the aesthetic
Drumohr, Johnston of Elgin, O'Connell's Shetland, Gran Sasso, Zanone, John Smedley etc. for sweaters.
Incotex, PT01/PT05, Entre Amis, Sartoria Tramarossa etc. for jeans/chinos/trousers.
Loake, Herringshoes, Carmina, Santoni, Enzo Bonafé etc. for shoes.
Ivy League with the most history is arguably J Press. I walk by the New Haven store on my way to work every day
I can't wait to buy this "Take Ivy and Shove It" shirt....60s counterculture is back
I bought an old Dartmouth shirt to incorporate into my running outfits
Never encountered more banter in my entire life, mostly from Dartmouth alum who talked shit about Harvard football/basketball
I dress preppy and I would wear that ironically
Barbour is 80s prep
Harris tweed sport jackets is v ivy league style
Same for burberry trench coats back in the days, probably not now
Literally garbage tier prep
Barbour is country fashion, you'd be hard pressed to work it in a prep setting.
I agree with you on their sport jackets, yeah, but the rest of their items would only work in, as above, country fashion. Save perhaps for their ties.
>le bow tie meme
in the trash it goes
>he doesnt know about country prep fash
Minutely valid point about the Harris tweed sports jackets
but they weren't popular in Ivy League schools in the 60s nor is it part of ivy culture now
In American Tradition magazines, the writers talk about a distinct style called "rugged"
Harris Tweed and Barbour definitely fall into rugged
>anything but city prep
thom browne the GOAT to be honest
Indeed, what a lovely group of "white" supremacists
I know it gets shit on here a lot but I like casual culture =(
Shut the fuck up nobody wears fucking harris tweed sports jackets faggot. Also nobody wears burberry trench coats, you fucking idiot. Your taste is the only garbage.
The brands I mentioned are things that people actually wear, in association with prep idiot.
True but, the lines are blurred
Preppycore generally contains more layers than fratcore.
Preppycore can also have lots of patterns, they are just typically less vibrant colors.
However, just because the colors are vibrant it doesn't mean that is isn't preppycore.
Basically fratcore is a watered down more generic form of preppycore.
Like I said the lines are blurred because frat is watered down prep
Check out that old kjp interview on preposity
This is just an emotional response.
Why don't you make meaningful suggestions for things that preps actually wear rather than just insulting people?
Pic related what you call a "degenerate" with a billionaire happily shaking hands with him.
What have you done with your life, that you earn the right to insult people like that?
So why don't you show yourself, or contribute to the thread instead of shitpost?
There is no difference between fratcore and prepcore. Only the people who wear them. Therefore, a degenerate wearing preppy clothes is fratcore.
>post ur pic hurr
Post your pic fratfag
Still no contributions troll?
There is no difference between fratcore and prepcore.
So this is fratcore?
Only the people who wear them.
The fashion classification changes based upon the person who is wearing it? That's new.
>There is no difference between fratcore and prepcore.
>Therefore, a degenerate wearing preppy clothes is fratcore.
You say there is no difference, then you describe how they are different.
What has KJP done that makes him a degenerate?
Medical Doctors can be degenerate. Timestamp proof?
Just because you are a medical doctor you think that gives you the right to call everyone a degenerate? If more people in the nation were like him maybe the country would be better?
I love casual style, higher-end sportswear but with a hooligan attitude
I like the subtlety
"we're 14, we wear high-end athletic gear so that nobody suspects a thing, we hide in train stations and beat up hooligan firms in the pre-cellphone pre-internet era where a group of kids in Sergio Tacchini, Fila, Lyle&Scott, Pringle, Stone Island, United Colors of Benetton, and Lacoste jumpers/tracksuits/windcheaters and pristine SL72s can attain legend status for their Saturday morning acts of violence; then afterward get up to Manchester for a Paul Oakenfold acid house set at the Hacienda
>what do you wear when you go do sports?
if you want to look preppy while doing sport, wear a tweed sport coat with ocbd, chinos and loafers.
Or you could just wear appropriate gear for sport and dress preppy the rest of the time.
Of course, proper trimming to make sure I'm not a hairy gross fuck is essential, that's already something I emphasize in my daily regimen. Why would you recommend staying out of the sun? I only ask because I swim regularly, and work as a lifeguard in the summers so I get golden as fuck about half the year. Would very muted, lighter colors offset this, or should I really just try to keep things as pale as possible, skin-wise?
I just said so because preppy is a very east-coastish white dude look. And my guess would just be that Iranians ran faster than Europeans, right? I know middle easterners with the same skin tone as me (Scandinavian) but they turn brown as soon as they step in the sun.
tan* faster, sorry I'm tired as shit
basically just don't get too brown senpai and you'll be fine, you'll be surprised how yuropean some kebabs can look, maybe even you can as well
i like the go to hell look desu
requestan preppy brands as well and how to avoid becoming frat
I really used to like Penguin, but it seems like in the past 10 years or so theyve gone down the shitter and have become just like fred perry
