In an earlier post, we pegged High Cotton as the preppiest brand in America, an honor well and truly deserved. Based in North Carolina, High Cotton conjures up the best of southern prep culture. There is not a single item among its offerings (all American made) that would not enliven the wardrobe of every self-respecting traditionalist.
A few months back, I ordered a pair of tweed suspenders from High Cotton that I had been eyeing for some time. The weather finally cooperated enough for me to give them their initial wearing.
And a joy it truly was to don these suspenders for the first time. It’s the kind of item that makes you feel a bit better just for wearing it.
