    Fit is everything, bottom line.  The lady looks nice and that’s it. God bless Mr. Hilfiger and his family.  The man gets much respect around the world.  Some people are bashing him like they hang out together or something.  Let’s feel proud of his work as an American designer, please.

    This is my first post and I never imagined it would be on something like this photo, but here goes.  I remember when Rugby first came online and I clicked through polo.com and was so confused. I didnt like the clothes and thought they looked like costumes. I thought who in the world would wear this? I have always liked RL and Polo but it was hard for me to find clothes in the line that fit me. I am short, toned and muscular. Polo was either too big, sleeves were too long, whatever. This is before I could afford to have my clothing tailored. One day I saw a rugby shirt that I really liked, so I bought it. I was amazed at the fit, the quality, and how fun and refreshing it was. It was so different than anything out there. Living in Kentucky I am surrounded by UK athletics wear and Abecrombie and Fitch, neither of which I find interesting. Over time I started to like the sport coats and pants the Rugby line was producing, as well as the oxford shirts. They actually fit me perfectly. The line started to look less costumey to me. Over the years Rugby as grown and I think my interest in fashion and dressing well as grown with it. This fall the line has been tops. I think its finally coming into its own which is what I imagine RL had in mind for it. I have been both inspired and impressed. Never would I have imagined myself to be someone that would wear sport coats and oxfords, or be so into ties and belts. In fact, my adoration for Rugby is what lead me to this blog as FEC did some guest shoots for Rugby. To say that Rugby or RL is a copy of anything is misguided I think, but thats my opinion. I think the line is young and refreshing, and I have introduced many of my friends to it. In fact Rugby was my gift of choice for Christmas gifts. That being said I can see how others can be critical of Rugby because I once was. And Im sure everyone has their own personal label preference. Kudos to Rugby for helping to introduce a new generation of youth to a better style. I also dont understand the debates on clothing trying to convey a lifestyle. I dont look at the lines and think ‘wow people will think Im an Ivy Leaguer’ if I wear that! Mostly people just compliment me on what Im wearing.

    I think all of us wish that more ladies would dress like this. It’s a step in the right direction and a huge leap from the streetwalker look that seems to have captured many of today’s young women.

    More importantly, that baseball glove is to die for. I need to pressure my dad to give me his mid-1950’s Rawlings Stan Musial “trapeze” glove; I’d love to use it for a game of catch. Or to wear around town with my crested blazer.

    here’s what’s cool about this.  i can’t figure out (and don’t care to) if this ad is from the present or from 1984.  that’s what i like about this ‘prep style’ thing going around.  it’s nothing new, but the same stuff i’ve (we’ve) been wearing since i ditched my baby onesie.

    Not a fan of tommy, but at least with the latest ads, it seems that he finally gets it, that the market wants preppy aesthetic, not gangster, and if he wants a portion of it, he better regroup and redesign. This is a great ad.

    I don’t know what I envy more… her ability to pull off the sock+cuffed trousers look, or that beautiful, tousled hair!

    I’ve seen this ad before, it’s one of my favorites.
