Nautical Prep

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us today’s preppy look accessorised with items by Paul Hewitt

I’ve been really keen on the preppy look for a while and have occasionally erred towards that genre of styling in my daily look. 

After receiving a great little parcel from Paul Hewitt, who sell some really great preppy accessories, I thought I’d use them to build a look to challenge the preppiest prepster.

Getting my preppy style on

The preppy preperation

I chose items in the same colourway and all with a nautical theme. The bright red bow tie is printed with lobsters, the red, white and blue bracelet fastens with and anchor and the nato strap on the vintage style watch is also adorned with anchors. The red and blue belt and pocket square help to bring the colour theme together.

If you like the Paul Hewitt accessories, check back on the blog again soon as I’ll be carrying out a product review on their vintage style watch.

Making sure everything is just so

The navy blazer is a summer weight cotton, half lined and with patch pockets, simply constructed but great to wear. While I was determined to wear this look today I wasn’t so inspired to do so when I saw that the temperature here in the UK had dropped to minus three degrees! So to keep out the cold (a little) I also grabbed a scarf on my way out. Red and blue of course!

The scarf didn’t really add warmth but it added to the look for sure
