American prep peaked with the J.Press/Brooks Brothers Yale/Harvard rivalry, and with the Cary Grants of the world. Soft shoulders, brass buttons, penny loafers, etc. were staples for the prep movement. There is plenty to take from this time in history of menswear.

While keep the idea of American prep, an updated silhouette is key. Going for DB jacket (skip the brass buttons), a pair of patterned trousers, suede loafers (sockless), a denim shirt, a textured tie, and a playful pocket square – its a “classic” combo that portrays a little bit of fun and adding a modern touch. Looking to the past for inspiration will always be a good idea, but its the interpretation of history that brings excitement.
