Excellent suggestion. This is what I have so far:

Aime Leon Dore
Noah
Beams Plus
Polo Ralph Lauren
Rowing Blazers
Engineered Garments (some)

I’m finding a lot more difficulty when it comes to brands that aren’t from the US.

If you are including Polo RL, you might as well include: Brooks Brothers, J Press, and J Crew.
fair, but I think I’m looking at it in a more non-traditional sense.

nothing any of those brands don’t hold weight, but I guess I’m trying to see if I can find things that are a lot more updated/modernist in regards to styling, if that makes any sense?

That is where I thought you were going but I view Polo as more in the camp of Brooks and J Press when it comes to prep. Either way, it is your list so compile it the way you like.

+ Drakes (an Englishman's perception of Ivy & prep)
+ FE Castleberry

Prep, trad, and neo-prep all somewhat bleed into each other at the borders. Depending on how you're defining this, Junior's might also fit the bill. Or, at least, they're a relatively new "trad" company that's trying to appeal to a younger crowd.

J Press had a line called iirc York Street that was sort of a *trad-forward* deal

at one time i had a madras popover hoodie from the collection that was interesting and good

dunno if the line still exists or if they have that sort of fashion initiative anymore

The guys from Ovadia & Sons were the designers behind York Street.

When Ovadia started they were very much a youthful trad/prep brand. They made some nice stuff back then before switching gears to become a fashion forward brand.
