I'm wondering how to describe this sub set of "preppy" style which may or may not be dying out. When a friend described to have " old money" fashion sensibilities I asked what they meant and they replied saying it was a combination of timeless, classic fashion that never goes really out of style mixed with frugality and thrift.
Those attributes are true but in my mind it's more handed down clothing of a certain quality that is rarely these days, Brooks Brothers when they made things in America, and well worn clothing that isn't quite mainstream preppy but closely relate to Trad style. It's a bit hard to explain, you'll know when you see it.
Does anyone know what I'm referring to? It's a bit hard to put into words.
