Throwback Prep Thursdays: Ralph Lauren and the West


1978
1978
      For throwback preppy Thursday segment, it's Ralph Lauren. To a lot of people when you mention the name Ralph Lauren the usual associations are three piece suits, Madras shirts, polo shirts in every pastel possible, and seersucker pants. While yes, these are very true traits to associate with the brand. Ralph Lauren to me  really America because it's a mixture of various backgrounds. While the associations I mentioned are very East Coast influenced. Ralph Lauren also has a western influence, which consist of ponchos, denim jackets and pants, cowboy boots, wool sweaters with native prints probably influenced by Pendleton, down vest with the western yoke (Rocky Mountain Feather Vest Colorado Brand). Western wear is actually the opposite of the old school era preppy fashion. The outfits are highly accessorize, which is completely the opposite of the preppy dress code which less is more. Western wear outfits have bandanas, Navajo inspired belts, Turquoise jewelry. Today's Neoprep fashion really put a cross out to that rule with men and women having arm parties on their wrists. Ralph Lauren is Prep, but it's larger than Prep it's America you could find every U.S.A region somewhere! Most of the pictures are shot by Bruce Weber with the very popular Ralph Lauren model Clotilde. Enjoy!

L.L. Bean Town and Field Waxed Cotton Jacket









   A couple of days ago I presented the  2014 L. L. Bean fall/winter look. One of my favorite pieces of the brand was the Town and Field jacket.  Which in my opinion is relatively affordable at $200. This jacket is a great alternative for the girls that want a Barbour which can be expensive or want that another option than the J. Crew boyfriend jacket.  While the town and field jacket is fifty dollars more than the J. Crew boyfriend jacket. You're paying for better quality;  British Millerain waxed cotton is one of the best waxed cotton fabrics. British Millerain® Co. Ltd. (Established in 1880 and family owned for six generations). I was really happy to see this jacket bought back from the archives. This specially updated style is lined with quilted flannel and features details that draw on tradition to keep you warm and dry, even in the harshest conditions: brass zipper with button-closure and patch pockets that conceal handwarmers behind, corduroy trim. Let me tell you, being an owner of waxed canvas  and riding jackets corduroys trim always feels great around the hands and neck on cool chilly days. This jacket is perfect for those days when there's inclement weather wear them with a cap and pair of L.L.Bean to fully accomplish the trend preppy androgynous look in a woman. The jacket shouldn't only be worn during inclement weather, on sunny days throw some riding boots and channel your equestrian look! Best thing about this jacket is that it's stylish and functional!
