Madras is the most preppiest fabric used primarily for summer clothing as blazers, pants, shorts etc. This hand-woven, checkered, cotton fabric originated from the former English name of the city Chennai in India. True Madras is known as bleeding Madras as the color would fade and yield a new look every time it was laundered. This style was especially popular during the 60s among the preps.
Thomas Burberry successfully pitched trench coat to the UK War Office as an addition to the service uniform, albeit other British company Aquascutum’s claim is dating back to the 1850s. Anyway only officers in British Army during First World War were allowed to wear it and the waterproof, knee-length coat became an essential military staple. After war just a few officers were willing to give up the coat. Trench coat officially entered civilian life as demand was getting high especially among businessmen and women alike. It seems each era has put their own spin on coat, changing colors, styling and fabrics without altering its integral structure. Trench coat is timeless piece every man should have in his wardrobe.

Paisley (Kašmírový vzor) je kresba pripomínajúca zaoblené, opakujúce sa kvetinové vzory v tvare slzy. Vzor pochádza zo starovekého Babylonu a v 30. rokoch minulého storočia sa prvýkrát objavili kravaty práve s týmto vzorom. Názov pochádza z mesta Paisley v Škótsku, presláveného v 19. storočí pre vzorované šály. V dnešnom mužskom šatníku je paisley vzor akceptovaný na kravatách, vreckovkách do saka či motýlikoch.
