Photograph by Tec Petaja for Billy Reid
I am smitten with this photograph. It’s brilliant...inspiring. A preposterously dandy marriage between New England’s ubiquitous influence on Prep style and southern comfort. Billy Reid serves up this Southern sentiment in his bi-annual menswear collections that range from comfortably handmade suits and jackets to khakis that will outlive us all.
“I was raised in the South and I live in the South. So I guess my clothes do have that vibe.”    —Billy Reid
