Look the Part: Cosmopolitan Preppy

Polka Dot Tie.

Men’s prep fashion has held a grip on our fashion sense for close to a century, with its seersucker and pops of pinks and color, all anchored by its straight-as-they-come khaki and blue blazer baseline. The same could be said for the building that houses Noble House’s Argonaut Hotel in Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. Built in 1907, it’s a façade of exposed brick, Douglas fir beams, and bay views around every corner. But then you’ll also find a design squarely in the twenty-first century – overstuffed chairs in big bold reds and blues, textured faux-leather wall treatments, and a nautical theme that feels fresh, not overdone.

Preppy style follows a set of similar fashion rules in this city known for its unending commitment to progress above all else. Where do urban prep end and hipster begin? It’s a blurry line here in this land of tech start-ups and artisan everything. Yet, what you’ll find is that accessories make the part. To help you round out an urban preppy look, we offer some suggestions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”516″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]IZOLA, Flask Funnel,, $8[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”517″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]JOHN ELLIOT + CO., The Cast,, $250[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”500″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]HARD GRAFT, Wool Flat Pack,, $366
