Spencer and his Brooks Brothers Duffle Coat

Last weekend I went to the beach with Spencer, a friend from Portland and fellow Colby student. Spencer has a modern preppy sense of style, incorporating contemporary staples like Nudie Jeans and Vans Authentics and more conventionally preppy classics like J-Crew and Brooks Brothers.
Although not preppy in the typical, Preppy Handbook way, Spencer's clothes are understated, well made, and wearable in many situations. In these photos Spencer is wearing all white Vans Authentics, a Pendleton wool shirt (under the coat), dark Nudie Jeans and a Brooks Brothers Duffle Coat (which I really like).

This block of ice was carried hundreds of feet above the shoreline by high tide, similar to the smaller blocks of ice in the mouth of the Kennebec River.

Spencer shows that preppy does not just have to be pastel polo shirts, khaki pants, and boat shoes, but can be a mix of modern and classics.

Great post Foster.

I think the common thread in all of Spencer's clothing is they are classics. The Pendleton shirt and BB duffle coat are old classics, and the Vans Authentic and raw, straight denim are new classics (like, new in the last 60-70 years).

Spencer's gotta be careful with his hems though, in one of the pictures it looks like he may be stepping on them. He'll destroy those jeans before the even get good.

Vans is an American based manufacturer of sneakers, skateboarding shoes, BMX shoes, snowboarding boots and other shoe types, I think that it is one of the best pone in the world, I used to wear this kind of shoes when I was young!22dd
