Sid Mashburn X Tretorn Nylites Dayglow

Tretorn Nylites

preppy tennis shoe

I was checking the Sid Mashburn website and came across to these bad-boys. These Tretorn Nylites e a little bit under the radar. I should add them to my shoe collection. This was collaboration by Tretorn with Sid Mashburn for the "The Nylite Project" which resulted of a limited edition Nylite in an awesome colorway closely resembling to a tennis ball. The shoe went through a dyeing process to achieved this wicked neon.For the people not familiar with  Sid Mashburn, it's one of the best Men's clothing stores in South. These shoes are limited to 250 pairs. I'm surprised that's a lot of sizes still in stock. Which is tempting to me, but I promise myself no more footwear spending. Go get them now

Throw Back Preppy Thursdays: Tretorn Nylites 1975

From the Crispy files check out this advertisement of Tretorn Nylites. The advertisement is from 1975 and it's about how comfortable the Nylite is The Tretorn Nylite was a shoe made for the tennis court. It was a luxury shoe at that time. The advertisement said that the shoes should be worn off the tennis court because they're s comfortable Which is true I agree I own a pair of Tretorn Nylites.

     I have a fashion blog however, my blog differs from most fashion blogs because mines focuses on mainly on preppy clothing. I like showcasing up and coming preppy brands that everyone may not know about. I also love when an old brand comes back. That's the story with Boast USA. For the people not familiar with the brand, Boast USA is the infamous tennis shirt brand because of its Japanese Maple Leaf that resemble to a Marijuana leaf. It was the cool polo shirt to wear in the eighties when you had three other options Izod Lacoste, Fred Perry, and Polo Ralph Lauren. The tennis shirts were very popular in country clubs in the eighties. In the early nineties the brand took a step back from the mass market and was only seen in county clubs. Many people thought that the brand went out of business. The brand was bought back to life by John Dowling and Alexander Tiger, who are tennis enthusiast and longtime fans of Boast.
     I was checking my email when I came across to the good news the preppy e-commerce website Country Club Prep is carrying Boast USA.Here are some of my favorite stuff that country club is carrying from Boast. Get into the old school tennis player look with a polo shirt in white with red and blue stripes on the collar. I really see myself wearing the match shorts I really love them. I really could use the shorts now with the heat wave in New York City. Of course I would be wearing Tretorn Nylites only appropriate. The shorts reminded me of the ones shown in the ads that I usually present on my blog. Creativity is seen in the tennis shirt that is limited edition in the colorway of a tennis ball. Tennis dresses for any female serious to play a game. Yup!
     Overall, great addition to Country Club Prep to adding a legendary brand. Strong lineup while staying true to its roots. Also, be sure to read the history of the brand
