English Prep represents the best of classic style: clean cut, slightly rebellious, a collage of earthy tones, traditional fabrics, and well-placed layers. This effortlessly timeless look finds itself at home amidst the soaring Gothic arches of New College, Oxford or the carefully tended grounds and time-worn stone of King's College, Cambridge. Tweed is an essential staple in the English scholar's wardrobe. Sporting a classic tweed coat is a symbol of intellectual sophistication. Hundreds of smaller British companies continue to produce quality tweed and wool goods for those who like return to school in timeless, English style.
