Menswear Wednesday: Peter Millar

In a prepster’s world, the male closet is dominated by the presence of Ralph Lauren, J.Crew and Vineyard Vines. When I think of preppy guys, those three labels come to mind, but luckily your closet doesn’t have to be overwhelmed with Polo horses and whales. A much lesser-known designer of luxury sportswear, Peter Millar, is slowly making its way up the fashion ladder, with a resume that includes clothing the U.S. men’s teams in the 2010 Ryder Cup and the 2011 President’s Cup.

Categorizing their apparel as "for work or for leisure," Peter Millar’s menswear line includes everything to dress the preppy guy from head to toe, including sport shirts, knits, sweaters and pants. The line was created in 2001, and, interestingly enough, named after an inscription on an antique lawn bowling ball he received from his mother.

Scope out the best selections at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack, at upscale boutiques, or on their website. I've always been a fan of Peter Millar's sport shirts, but lately I've been swooning over the designer's footwear and jackets... especially the vests (I'm not sure why more guys aren't into vests).


  1. Love, love, love those green loafters! My hubby definitely needs a pair.

  2. Hey great finds... I'm definitely going to have to turn my husband on to these!


  3. I'm loving the footwear! Everything on your list is fabulous!

    P.S. I'm hosting a monogrammed ring giveaway, so make sure you stop by my blog and check it out!
