ITT: we post prep brands pieces inspo etc.
can we all agree that prep is the best fashion and anything else is for feminine men?
I think we can agree on that
He's right though, we already agreed that only white, and some blacks can be preps.
that nigga didnt go to college he just plays pretend dress up what a faggot
He has the style down pretty good though
Is that why brooks brothers did a kiel james patrick x brook brothers collaboration?
He didn't go to college because he is rich as fuck, and started a business right after PREP SCHOOL. He literally went to PREP school, and that is were he started his fashion line. Just gtfo.
Dude Asians will NEVER be prep. It's only for blacks, and whites.
Most of his clothes don't fit, especially pants
Colors often don't really match and he mixes pieces with very different formality
To me he looks like someone who bought stereotypical prep clothes and just randomly put them together.
He literally said in the nyt that his Dad was a policeman and that they weren't rich at all
And BB isn't an authority on prep
>Dude Asians will NEVER be prep. It's only for blacks, and whites.
Asians fall into two categories and I don't just mean chinky asians, hypebeasts or prep. They have fuck all else.
>Dude Asians will NEVER be prep.
lol Ivy leagues are literally 20-50% Asian. International Asians probably embody rich amoral asshole archetype this generation.
Just start carrying one around. Try not to get shot by the police tho
Lacoste is prep, Vineyard Vines is the fratboy copycat brand of Lacoste, and even VV can be preppy sometimes
The first one literally is brooks brothers, though (the striped sweater). I'm looking for said zip-up of the similar type
is it even possible for jeans to be preppy? (they can be frat because frat is new but prep is 60s)
If you're just going for a traditional New England style jeans are fine, but it's extremely difficult (if not impossible) to make denim work if you're going full prepcore
Stick to chinos and corduroys
Same goes for beards
any ivy/prep movies worth investigating
I'll list off a few
National Lampoon's Animal House
A Separate Peace
Gonna watch The Social Network and A Beautiful Mind to see if there are any decent fits
probably the sail canvas bags; they're all good and less than 200 bucks
SHIT I actually have a pretty cool prep bag but I can't remember the brand name. it's cheap and super super sturdy. if I can find it I'll let you know the brand name (by the way it's from China)
Thinking of buying one of these: http://m.llbean.com/product.html?&skCatId=33381&productId=7176&attrValue_0=Blue%20Trim&pla1=0&mr:trackingCode=87FBB696-B0F0-E211-A497-90E2BA285E75&mr:referralID=NA&mr:device=m&mr:adType=pla_with_promotiononline&mr:ad=57704170040&mr:keyword=&mr:match=&mr:tid=pla-161133723440&mr:ploc=1014843&mr:iloc=&mr:store=&mr:filter=161133723440&mkwid=8HgPStNM_dm&pcrid=57704170040&qs=3091392_google&product=0M19420001&cvosrc=cse.google.0M19420001&cvo_crid=57704170040&lsft=mkwid:8HgPStNM_dm%2Cpcrid:57704170040%2Cqs:3091392_google%2Cproduct:0M19420001%2Ccvosrc:cse.google.0M19420001%2Ccvo_crid:57704170040#33381
Then I'll put some Jpress Yale patches on it and I'll definitley get it monogrammed

There is literally nothing wrong with Ralph Lauren
i'll admit i have a few polo ralph lauren items i like, a few flourescent polos and a cardigan. the big issue with their stuff is an obvious one, and it has nothing to do with the quality of their items. its the simple fact that their stuff is literally everywhere. id say its the most common brand in the world. every single store in every mall, macys, etc., and thus their clothing crosses a huge variety of people. their clothes are commonly found in marshalls, tj max, even big lots. therefore, you get a lot of scummy poor people and trailer park trash wearing ralph lauren. nasty looking indian men with flip flops and turbins wearing ralph lauren. 80 yr old grandpas wearing it. I think thats why people hate it, because its so readily available to every element of the population.
Also KJP fanboy shitting every prep thread can you kill yourself already
Bruce wayne in gotham has good prep
>inb4 shit show
That's nice. Quit with the hopeless begging for validation. If the Ivy schools were allowed to discriminate, they would. They are schools that were built by white people, for white people.
Prep = white culture. Anyone else wearing it is trying to emulate white culture.
What about their student athletes
Harvard basketball is actually really fucking good
And with the number of SJWs nowadays the Ivy League had to lead by example with their admissions criteria
> Anglo-American prep
cringe, just leave it to the french and italians
snot green kakhi shorts don't look good
Recently I copped a pair of Mexico 66s, am I wearing them right?
is that a bad thing? I actually don't know anything about the cultures. I'm just looking for brands outside the typical answers (polo/hilfiger/Lacoste/vineyard vines) because they're all pretty much frat-core
You're right. Nothing's bad about Lacoste or either polo or hilfiger for that matter. For me it's just the association with the frat style that I see so often. I suppose you could wear it the right way though
20 kids wearing Lacoste polos with Lacoste cardigans and spotless SL72s screams lower leagues casual firm
Same outfit with loafers, boat shoes, or Lacoste sneakers screams fratboi/fresa on vacation from UANL
They are allowed and do discriminate under certain circumstances.
Being an Asian is a negative when applying to most ivies nowadays.
The top of your fit is great, the bottom is not prep at all. Get different shoes and pants if you're going for the prep look please
Prep is disgusting, but more formal wear is obviously master tier. Prep is the faggoty version of menswear.
Asians are pretty much starting to take over the traditional menswear scene. When it really explodes in Asia, it'll be fun seeing them go bananas with new, weird combos.
Except Asians are starting to nail this 10 x better than everyone else.
I think 80s prep is pretty fun desu senpai
Early 60s ivy league is the best though
But all these ugly boat shoes, pastel colours, ill-fitting shit etc. is fucking gay.
It's literally a style taken right out of the handbook friendo
I'm planning on getting into prep (or menswear as someone in the thread was calling it) and here are some things I currently have in my cart on Amazon
I already have burgundy chinos and white chinos
Am I on the right track? I'm also thinking of white waxed laces for the chukkas
the picture of the watch doesn't do it justice, so here's a video o fit rotating
I also bought the watch in the pic already as well
what would you recommend?
For the shoes,I was drawing inspiration from things like pic related
nigger that's not prep and whatever that is, it's disgusting
go back to fashion 101, there's not a single decent item in this list
prep and menswear are not interchangeable
You post an example then of something better
I wouldn't cop desu
If you're really on a tight budget I'd recommend these, they're not great but at the price you'd be very hard pressed to find something better
I wouldn't get the sweaters either, they look pretty low quality imo
they look so low quality to me, especially the soles.
I've seen guys wear shiny leather brown chukkas and contrast the color with the pants and that was what I'm going for.
Are there any other brands?
I would never go for regular leather chukkas, always go for suede instead. Dark brown.
If you're short on money, check out Meermin/SuitSupply. If you can afford nicer ones: Carmina, Santoni, Enzo Bonafé etc. Then there's even better ones, but I don't think there's any point in mentioning them here...
I'd recommend you start by buying one thing at a time, it's not really a good idea to do the "starter pack" thing, that way you can actually get good quality stuff that will last
You might like these
Saphir Renovateur, comes in three different colours. It's a pigmented suede spray, or whatever.
It's all in Swedish, but you can check out the picturs for some more details.
Guys should I rush a frat?
I just transferred to my first big university. I've been looking around at frats but none of them are really like the ones seen in the pics. Their main things just involve throwing parties, drinking, doing stupid fundraiser events, and generally living like slobs together.
I just wanna dress preppy and go boating desu
so what's so bad about this cardigan though?
It's $56.50 so it's not exactly cheap and has a lot of good reviews.
The main reason I like it is because of the collar reaching up as it does and there's a lot of color options for dark blue
cop or not?
Is it not just the way it's hanging?
If you're going to treat it like an overcoat which is what I assume you're saying, I'd go for something in a lighter brown color or just a lighter color in general.
A jacket like that covers a large portion of your torso and something so dark and covering so much will just appear as any other jacket by any other brand as it has no real discernible features being so dark.
I did my best
You should gain a bit weight, at least aim for 29-30.
Incotex and PT01 (or PT05) have a great fit, I love my flannel trousers from PT01 - they're heavenly.
You could also check out Luxire if they have any materials you like, then just send them a pair of your best-fitting pants if you wanna go custom. Probably cheaper then both options I mentioned above.
>mfw get into an elite university
>mfw everyone wears fucking jogger pants and flip flops everywhere, even when it rains
Ive league schools today are filled with entitled hippies
I put this together in MS paint
Honestly and unironically I think you should go look at the sidebar on /r/malefashionadvice
I'm not trying to meme on you, There's a lot of useful information there that can help you much more than I can
Just saw this on Instagram
Not prep. That's just asian-core
This is more prep for women.
I think the pants are a pretty ugly color and I don't like the white laces on the boots
Also I don't think a waistcoat and tie is a good idea in a casual outfit either
As long as the clothes are well fitting though your average person probably wouldn't give it a second thought
seems to be leaning a bit far into the hipster/mens fashion arena.
I think if you dropped the tie and switched the chukkas for a more traditional choice of prep footwear it would look much better
pants-wise I was drawing some inspiration from here.
I think it's a nice contrast of light and dark
Not the guy you were talking to, but generally with bright pants you want to make the rest of the outfit pretty toned down (i.e. white/blue OCBD and neutral colored sweater and brown loafers/derbies) and let the pants do the talking. Your prospective fit looks alright, but there's a little bit too much textural noise with the other items.
Frankly, the only way to pull off the prep aesthetic is to be born into the lifestyle. If you didn't go to prep school (and a proper prep school at that - not just some local parochial bullshit) you will never really look authentically preppy. You'll just be a poseur.
Prep is more than just clothes, it's a subculture in its own right. The clothes themselves carry subtle yet important connotations about the wearer. If you weren't raised in the culture you couldn't possibly understand.
