  1. So you want to buy prep/trad/Ivy style clothing, but are a Eurofag and all the existing guides are designed for yankoids? Wonder no more, here a guide that I will keep editing so you no longer have to look, and no longer have to ask the same questions every fucking thread.

  3. I'm assuming you already have read (if you haven't do so now or this list will make no sense) all the basics to what makes a prep/trad/Ivy outfit, what to wear on which occasion and how the style developed, so it will just be a plain list of easily attainable prep clothing in Europe. Prep/trad/Ivy clothing has an emphasis on quality and ethic work places, so most of the stuff listed here will therefore be made in Western-Europe or the USA. Prices and sales will be listed because being frugal is very trad. I excluded stuff that you COULD buy in Europe, such as Brooks Brothers via their site, but that has basically such a high mark up or fucking about with shipping costs, duties and returns that it isn't worth it anymore. Made abroad basically means made somewhere in Asia. You'll have to look around a bit on this list, some things are listed that are really not worth it full price, but go on sale so often and so deep that they become a very good option.
