Mad Men blew up the pocket square making it trendy again which is great! Do focus on the pocket square, but also focus on showing just the right amount of shirt cuff which should be 1/2" - 1" of cuff showing. Then pair this w/ a good watch and cuff links are you're all set! Good Luck & "Stay Preppy My Friends"
New York 1960's, sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama Mad Men follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.
The 4th season of Mad Men starts this Sunday July 25th on AMC. Will you be watching. You should! I know it conflicts w/ Hung & Entourage on HBO, but Mad Men is a must see if you are a fashionista and an Ivy League grad. Your preppy/ power suit look depends on it along w/ this blog. Enjoy Mad Men - Season 4.

J.McLaughlin is a great preppy store that has been in business for 30 years started by 2 brothers in New York and continues to grow bigger and ever stronger w/ stores in the North East all the way to Southern Florida. If you are on the East coast you have to get to a J. McLaughlin store. They cater to men, women & kids. They use great fabrics and a lot of color, but w/ taste and class.
