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.
>>
>>10855282
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.

>>10855551
He literally said in the nyt that his Dad was a policeman and that they weren't rich at all

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

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.

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.

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 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.

>>10873995
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.

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.

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

I understand, but is the picture at least a step in the right direction?

If you saw a guy looking like that, what would you think?

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
>>
>>10878901
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.

That outfit has a lot of broken rules =(
Do I have to list them?
Or can I hide my autism

I was more so just looking at the color of the pants and how they contrast with the rest of the colors.

the outfit is pretty shit

No, it's only for WASPs.

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 can be pulled off if you have your clothes tailored and you have muscle.
>>
>>10879024
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.

or you can flip through one issue of Free&Easy and understand everything about ivy/prep

Yeah he's right, in the same way you have to be hated by all your friends to dress like yung lean
