Southern Proper Campus Pants!





   In my favorite season summer the weather in New York City is actually behaving how it's supposed to. That Sunday it was really hot, but I wasn't going to fall into wearing shorts because I had to do some business in the morning. So how do I stay cool? Well, besides wearing the right fabrics. Maybe it's a mental or psychological thing, but I always feel cooler  when I wear brighter clothes. Southern Proper Campus Pants in the Hunter green colorway are as of now  my favorite  solid color pants in my wardrobe. Well priced for only $99.50, they seriously add crispyness to your wardrobe. There's plenty of awesome colors to choose from. I will definitely be buying more. The reason that I like these chinos, so much  because they aren't heavy compared to dockers. Made of 100% Peruvian cotton, they feel terrific and look even better. Please check out Southern Proper because they have more awesome colorways as well. I didn't wear a leather equestrian belt because they can be heavy I went to my favorite nautical belt from York River Traders. The Campbell belt from York River Traders really puts the colors of this outfit together in my opinion. The belt is crafted with real climb-spec webbing and complemented by our solid brass compass buckle. It doesn't get more nautical than chilling on the North Brooklyn Waterfront with a belt that has a compass as a buckle. The belt is made in the USA and only runs for $59.00 I kept it simple with a nice small check gingham spread collar shirt from Club Monaco and slim silk squared bottom tie from J Lindeberg. On my head I wore a Southern Proper Madras Frat Cap. Kept the ray out of my eyes with these crispy sunglasses from Penn Avenue Eyewear. I kept the latest issue of The Real Deal and other rent applications in my Copper River BagCo briefcase.The  tassel fringe loafers make my outfit complete from Ghbass Weejuns. Doing business in a casual and preppy matter!Thank you very much to my Photographer David C.Smith, please check him out!

Southern Proper Anniversary Collection Preview

Southern Proper Anniversary Collection Preppy Fashion Southern Style
    Southern Proper makes it in my top 5 list of favorite brands. I’m usually wearing something from Southern Proper. I was given the privilege to view the 10 year anniversary collection last month. I can't believe 10 years have already past.Thank you very much by the way I had a fantastic time!!! I can’t mention it enough. From a consumer standpoint Southern Proper has showed immense progression. A brand that began with T-shirts and Bowties is now has a pretty wide range inventory to keep the Proper gentleman and women crispy. Founded on strong southern values style, tradition and authenticity. I see now why I like the brand so much since I believe very strongly in those traits as well.

Throwback Prep Thursday: Town & Country Magazine August 1989

Straight from the crispyarchives, I came across to this vintage Town & Country magazine that goes back to 1989. Town & Country is one of my favorite magazines. It's the originator publication for the luxury lifestyle! What an awesome preview featuring some of my favorite designers like Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta, Calvin Klein, and Saint Laurent.

L.L Bean Jackman Blucher Moccasin Tan Colorway on Sale

   One of my favorite shoes is Blucher Mocs. Blucher moccasins are a great shoe to have in your wardrobe because it's a more grown up version of the boat shoe. It has pretty the same versatility as boat shoes. I have a pair of two pairs of Blucher moccasins in my wardrobe (one being L. L. Bean of course!) Checking out the L.L. Bean website last night I came across to these wonderful tan Blucher moccasins on sale to bad my size isn't available. Hand sewn from domestically tanned smooth leather and it has premium rawhide laces from the legendary Auburn Leather Company in Kentucky. Since the moccasin has a smooth leather lining it feels comfortable with or without socks. The tan colorway is on sale for $79.99 which is great for a preppy staple that you will have in rotation year around!

My Favorite picks from the L.L Bean Spring/Summer collection for Womens Available Now!


On the female Polka dot woven Maxi Dress Navy



   Hello, all my preppy readers! Here’s  some of my favorite picks from the  L.L. Bean Spring/Summer collection for women. L.L. Bean is a classic brand that has a strong relationship with classic Americana fashion. Most of you prep enthusiasts own several items from the legendary outdoor brand. The problem about L. L. Bean is that people view the brand more suitable for Fall/Winter fashion. I urged to not believe that stereotype L.L.Bean has a fantastic warm weather collection for womens.
