Whether he’s making his way through a mob of East Village grade schoolers or making the grade in class, Dan Trepanier is right at home in his bespoke blue blazer. A week of sharing The Style Blogger’s prep-based personal style continues as Trepanier shares his motivation for dressing well and passing on the gold buttons.
“I think subconsciously I dress well as a way of showing my mom, and everybody else, how far my family has come.” —Dan Trepanier

Noteworthy (Trepanier): It doesn’t get much more prep than a blue blazer and cordovan tassel loafers. I designed this one in midnight navy with black horn buttons to make it slightly more gotham-city worthy. Rather than pairing it with predictable khakis, try a trouser with some pattern and anchor it down with a white button down shirt.
Noteworthy (Castleberry): No break in the trousers, straight fold pocket square, Filson briefcase, side-part hairstyle.
