GANT Rugger’s Pre-Autumn 2011 collection

By Laura on May 17th, 2011

GANT is one of those brands I often forget about, but really should keep on my radar. The GANT Rugger’s Pre-Autumn 2011 collection is a perfect example of why. Their 3rd quarter offering, includes the classic ivy-life inspired wears we have come to expect. However, this latest incarnation are slightly more tailored for a stronger fit.

The collection delivers online now and there are definitely a few pieces you could start wearing now.

Military watch straps: its the details that count

By cchapman on July 13th, 2009

military_watchstraps.jpgSometimes, its the small details that make an outfit look particularly polished and well thought out. And whilst 80s digital watches are nice, they have become a bit ubiquitous. Striped, military style watch straps – particularly when paired with a vintage watch face – can make a statement. Actually part of the preppy uniform (those bold colours and stripes) and available at stores like Rugby Ralph Lauren in the States, the striped military watch strap can also be found here on grooming site, Carter and Bond. A bargain detail at £15 and worth digging around to find the perfect, vintage watch face to pair it with.

Pre Summer Style Homework: The Talented Mr Ripley

By admin on April 16th, 2009

Do you remember the ‘late ’90s film The Talented Mr Ripley? Featuring Jude Law before he became really annoying and Matt Damon before he fucked Sarah Silverman the film is a great way to remind yourself how to shed your winter layers.

Along with Gwyneth Paltrow they loll about in Italy looking gorgeously well dressed until Something Bad Happens. The really interesting bit is watching their outfits, Law’s goes for a ’50s take on Club Tropicana and Damon really cuts a dash in gingham. If you’re going for a preppy look this season then fit in a viewing of this film over the weekend so you can be summer-ready.

Unruly Heir seersucker hoodie

By ShinyMedia on May 9th, 2007

SeersuckerThe preppy look is great as long as you add a strong dash of subversiveness, all those smart clothes can look brilliantly anti-establishment if you wear them a certain way. Unruly Heir’s lilac seersucker hoodie is gorgeously preppy, it would look great teamed with other candy brights for a punky take on the posh-boy look. I’m thinking multicoloured deck shoes (the preppy shoe of choice), pale pink jeans and an orange Lacoste polo shirt. Are you with me?
