Starter Kit: Prep Style

Thinking about adding some sophistication to your wardrobe? Or maybe you just want to make sure you've covered the prep-wear basics. Either way, you'll find what you're looking for and your style will remain classy and timeless.

Use this collection of items as your foundation for preppy clothes, from which I encourage you to build upon by adding variations of each garment. Don't feel obligated to buying only from the brands I listed. Several clothiers make exceptional versions of these products from my starter kit.


Brooks Brothers Suit and Sport Coat Fit Guide

Brooks Brothers never disappoints me with their design and style for men's wear. Specifically, I appreciate their consistency producing stylish, classic, and timeless suits and sport coats, as well as the quality with which the garments are made. Therefore, it's important to know how these suits and sport coats will fit in order to make the most informed purchasing decision possible. Having all of their fit guides in one place just makes the purchasing process a whole lot easier.


Brooks Brothers Suits: Regent Fit

I just purchased a Regent Fit Two-Button Plaid sport coat from Brooks Brothers a couple of weeks ago, Size 40R (I'm 5'10", 165lbs). The Regent fit is Brooks Brother's "modern take on our classic silhouette", meaning it's slightly slimmer than their traditional Madison Fit suits and sport coats, but not as slim as the Fitzgerald fit or the even slimmer Milano fit. Therefore, in the Regent and Fitzgerald fits I wear a size 40R. However, in a Madison Fit I wear a size 39R due to its boxiness, and even then it still needs to be taken in.
