What LL Wore: Always be Prep

Sure, the scouts added four letters I'm choosing to ignore. I'm currently going through a Brooks Brothers loving moment, and it keeps on giving.

Such as the inside fold and finish of the tipped V-neck.

Navy and yellow striped Brooks Brothers piqué polo shirt
Navy purple and gold Goldsmiths College silk tie
Purple wool V- neck jumper
