    and what is the name of this kind of collar?

    I'm liking the club collar shirt in all three photos. I'm not sure I could pull the rest of this look off, though. The "highwaters" and the shorts with the black oxfords — that's just crazy!!

    Having said all of that — seems like a really cool guy.

    Ha! "Take Ivy" in full effect!

    It's not so much the prep style that is so great(although it is!), but rather the full expression of it through a simplified approach.

    @ Anonymous – There are plenty of women over 50 on the blog. You'd do well(and have fun) to browse the archives!

    Yay Sart – I love the amazing variety that you capture and share on your blog!

    Old school class and straight from Take Ivy – you can't keep a great look down! Love the look, the cardigan and loafers especially. I've been looking for a pair of shorts like these for ages in the UK..can I find them? No! Still searching…
    Great pic Scott.

    Is there somewhere you answer the questions on your blog? Yes, I too want to know who this man is. He is incredibly dashing and I admire his confidence. If a man wore trousers that short around here everyone would just think he doesn't know anything about fashion!

    I love his hair and that age does not have any limits on how you feel about your attire.

    He is attractive – one senses clarity about his weight in life, he recycles/mixes his clothing well and there is an innate sense of depth about how he carries himself – always an exciting thing!

    I for one dislike the suit with shorts and sockless dress shoes look that seems to be trendy right now. I'm also not into his tucked in tie but I would let that pass after the aforementioned atrocities. On the other hand, I'm fine with club collars (it's not, as someone here mentioned a few months back, something only a select few can pull off) and, living in the American South, I'm all for seersucker. Overall, though, I think this look is just trying too hard.

    He's handsome and dashing, but an old friend would call this look Not Enough Pants. And I would, albeit sadly, have to agree.

    I love to see that men actually can wear short trousers and still be stylish. There is this ongoing discussion whether it's okay or not; I think this guy shows that it is more than okay! I do, however, prefer the loafers to the lace-up shoes, giving a more casual look. All in all he's cool, casual and classy! (Please forgive me, if my English is a bit rusty)

    How do you get a shirt so tightly tucked in like that? I seem to always have a problem keeping it tight without it puffing out a little.

    I love all his looks – so neat. As if he didn't want to check his luggage, or lost all of his luggage, yet was still able to bring or buy a few simple, "necessary things." I keep trying to find the perfect pair of slimmer fit shorts – that aren't denim – to wear with blazers & haven't succeeded. I am 5'5" and 28 to 30 waist & can't find the right length.

    New Prep Standard is a reference to his Preppy yet Smart and Chic look. This is a man drenched in effortless style and is a prime example of how to gain age, but not loose confidence or taste.

    Sorry, I am a big fan of your work, but I have to disagree with a comment like "the new Prep standard". The highwater slacks look is already getting a little tired. Now, we have the exaggerated version with shorts? I am guessing that this is the one last big gasp before people realize that they don't have to try so hard to look avant garde.

    Especially in areas where it’s very warm, I can see the shorts suit becoming the standard. The outfit needs to be well-tailored.
