True Prep And Other Books For Stylish Men

Four books now available on the shop site! 

By Lisa Birnbach with Chip Kidd. From the author of The Official Preppy Handbook comes a new take on the old world that Lisa Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon thirty years ago. True Prep looks at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapts to the new order of the Internet, cell phones, rehab, political correctness, reality TV and...polar fleece.

By T. Hayashida. Originally published in Japan in 1965, Take Ivy is a collection of candid photographs shot on the campuses of America's elite, Ivy League universities. The series focuses on men and their clothes, perfectly encapsulating the unique academic fashion of the era. Described by The New York Times as, "a treasure of fashion insiders," Take Ivy has survived the decades and is an essential object for anyone interested in the history or future of fashion.

By Alfred B. Olsen and M. Ellsworth Olsen. Laugh your way to a better you! For those too busy to go to the gym, try some of the fitness advice provided in this 1908 classic revisited. In today's challenging business environment, the achieving executive needs every possible advantage, fitness included. With excerpts and original illustrations from The School of Health-the classic health reference of the early 1900s-here is a "practical course in physical culture" designed as a fitness program not even requiring a pair of exercise shorts, let alone joining a health club.

By Jim Howard. Dandy paper dolls featuring four fashionable fellows from history and today: Beau Brummell, Oscar Wilde, the Duke of Windsor, and Patrick McDonald.
