Holiday Gift Guide: The Preppy Professional

To kick-off the holiday season we’ve created a few short gift guides to help hone in on unique style profiles. Our first is the The Preppy Professional. He’s the snazziest dresser at the office. A sartorial and sharp fella that knows that dressing well is a form of good manners. Whether he’s been appointed to his first post-college job, or he’s been at this a while, he enjoys polished attire that isn’t pretentious. If this sounds like you, it’s going to read more like a wish list.


Hamilton Shirts have been hand cut and sewn in their Houston workshop for more than a century. Passed down through four generations, the message “quality above all” has survived in fabrics, workmanship, and especially personal service. The Hamilton Dress Shirt is made of 100% Italian Cotton with a moderate spread collar, button cuff, split yoke, and mother of pearl buttons. $265


Vineyard Vines has become the quintessential preppy brand, and for good reason. Bright colors and whimsical patterns are their hallmark. Pair this Mo Vines tie with a patterned shirt (Go ahead, mix patterns, it’s cool) and you’re good to go. Vineyard Vines donates 100% of the proceeds of this tie to the Movember movement for men’s health. Maybe next season they’ll have a beard one. $85


We’re digging this Timex Watch. Yep, Timex. It’s fun, casual, and nice enough to wear to the office. It’s nylon slip-thru strap has great color and pop. The face is simple and features Timex’s Indiglo night-light might help keep you awake during those late-night strategic planning meetings. You can interchange the straps for only $10. $50


Available in navy or charcoal, the Brooks Brothers Plain Weave Wool Scarf is a stunner. It’s woven in Italy and made of loft cashmere. If your beard is long enough, you may not need this one, but it sure will finish off an ensemble. $228


Quick access to your favorite beard products is important to you, and this kit not only helps with that but also looks pretty cool on your bathroom counter. Pick your favorite beard oil and wax scent, and you’re good to go! $39.99


Bird Dog Bay has great preppy shirts and ties, but their socks are off the hook. “Bored feet in search of some much needed socks appeal can look no further.” These mid-calf sporty socks are 70% Peruvian Pima Cotton, 20% Nylon, 1% Spandex and 100% cool. $24
