Preppy Men Fashions

Preppy men fashions include madras, seersucker and bowties.

After working on Husband for several years, I have succeeded!  It started out with the plaid shorts (not madras....plaid, that's the best I could do at that point).

We then moved onto madras.

Soon, we were purchasing seersucker.

This Christmas, the transformation was complete, when Husband wore a bowtie.

Preppy men know how to have fun with their preppy ladies.

I spied this preppy at a Kentucky Derby wedding last May.  You can't see it very well, but he's wearing an all seersucker suit.


If you read Jamie’s Blog, Pink Fried Tomato, I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures of her and her husband at Clemson football games, all decked out in head-to-toe prep.


One of my all-time favorite Lilly dresses, I love this picture.  Speaks High W.A.S.P. to me.  Aren’t the Labrador Retrievers just adorable?

A real preppy man, however, can wear pink pants, print pants and madras pants.  How about that velour smoking jacket.  I haven’t reached quite that far with Husband….eventually though.  Is it just me or does this picture remind you of Animal House?

Got to love a man in pink and green!  Swoon!

Love bowties!  Love madras bowties!  I see Husband in a madras bowtie in the near future.  Maybe Easter?  I wonder.


Now, how does one start a young infant boy down the path to becoming a preppy man.

Madras and seersucker of course!  Aren’t these little shoes and romper adorable?

What does your preppy man wear that just makes you swoon?

Happy Tuesday Y’all!


  1. I don't think I can change my husband.
    I do like it when he wears the Bass loafers I bought him (but that is rare).

  2. Great post! Gets me excited for warmer weather, and a much preppier husband. It seems that spring and summer bring out his preppier side! :)

  3. Madras and bowties make my southern belle heart go pitter patter!

  4. Love these looks. I can talk my husband into most things but I haven't mastered the bowtie ...yet :)


  5. I love preppy guys! This post makes me swoon!

  6. Very sharp. My mister, I'm afraid, would never wear any of it, though.

    The Lilly dress that's your favorite is really cute. I've never seen it.

    Happy Tuesday.

  7. I think the best part of all of that is that someone is at a Clemson football game. Go Tigers!!!!

    Rock on!

  8. I too succeeded in prepping up my husband! He looks great! Thanks for your comment on my blog. So glad I'm not alone!

  9. I'm adoring this post! My hubby and groomsmen wore blue and white seersucker in our wedding-with pink bowties to match the girls' dresses! I think preppy men are so dashing!
