• Green Jacket

    Style | Dress Code  

    Woody Hines co-founded Prepidemic in his Princeton, New Jersey dorm room as a freshman. That was just 18 months ago. In between journalism assignments, cross country, and philosophy lectures, he muses on everything from starting your neckwear collection to building your wardrobe on a student’s budget. Here Woody, his nickname, looks pulled together even though it appears as if he resurrected his khakis from a dirty clothes pile in the corner; which is perfectly acceptable when you are a college student.

    Noteworthy (Hines): For the milder weather this holiday season, one can dress up a bit and use his sport coat as outerwear. I usually go sock-less as my feet rarely get chilly. If you’re worried about fickle weather, bring a scarf and you’ll be covered for most contingencies on these is-it-or isn’t-it-cold days. The green with the deep, subdued plaids fits the season as well.

    Noteworthy (Castleberry): Khakis nonchalantly worn wrinkled, little to no break in cuff, green in lieu of navy on this gold buttoned blazer.

    Besides Off the Cuff and this blog, I haven’t read too many Ivy League style publications that have met my taste. However I just checked out Prepidemic, loved their site, and their Twitter posts are great as well!

    These guys are beyond impressive.  This and yesterday’s shoot have been some of the best photographs I’ve ever seen on here.  I covet that scarf.

    Great look. I love his blazer and the suede penny loafers.

    Normally, I’m not a fan of the plaid tie, but Woody pulls it off well. The fit on the jacket is perfect as well as the color! The only thing I would add is a collar pin to keep them from flapping away.
