A must have list!!!


A contributor, a newly married preppy girl, was looking for gift ideas for her preppy husband. So the idea of a must have list has been born (somehow I don't think this is the first time this has been done). I'd like to solicit as many ideas as possible then we'll post the most preppy items that today's man really needs...

If he doesn't already have them, monogrammed cuff links are nice

How about a great tie, wearing suits is a lost art. Most of the ties I see on guys nowadays are 1980 wide tie leftovers.

I just did my personal summer must have list on my blog last week and haven't yet done Mr. Monogram's. However, I have on his list monogrammed tervis tumblers for the summer.

Yeah! I am the newly married girl that needed some ideas. My hubby didn't grow up a prep but has adopted the lifestyle for the ease of the wardrobe. He wears and wears certain items and he loves that the never go out of style. He has about half of the basics, great suit, navy blazer, madras pants, loafers, great ties, and a patagonia fleece. He even has some monogrammed tervis tumblers!

I am interested in those things that are just plain classic or are they more of a personal choice, like running shoes, sunglasses and outerwear?

It sounds like your husband is one lucky guy...Remember being preppy is a lifestyle, a trip to the mall will not change people...It seems that your husband truly enjoys the fun clothes and he will be open to more ideas...

I agree that it is a lifestyle and that is the part that he enjoys. Do you mean that I can't just go to A&F and get him a new look? ;) He is very open to my suggestions, but ultimately he has to feel comfortable. Thanks again for your blog, it is great to get a guys perspective!
