If you’re looking for something to spruce up those back-to-school pieces you bought a few months back, check out the Fall/Winter line from Pinstripe Prep. Based on the concept that every kid deserves to be “primped without looking pretentious”, Pinstripe Prep’s line of toddler and children’s wear combines equal parts comfort and class. For the lads, I like the V-neck Sweater with argyle detailing. Available in three colors and sizes 2T-10, throw one of these over jeans or khakis for an upcoming holiday get-together for instant style. Little ladies might like to shake off the cold with the solid-colored Convertible Polo highlighted with contrasting-colored sleeves and ribbed hems or the Knit Jacket which features a chic cross-over closure, chunky ribbed collar and zippered pockets.
Equally as enticing as their clothes is Pinstripe Prep’s commitment to sustainable and responsible business practices. An active member of 1% For the Planet, Pinstripe creates “country club couture” with socially conscious labor, recycling practices and support for community organizations.
Pinstripe Prep can be found at boutiques and specialty stores throughout the US, Canada and Australia, but as a pre-holiday treat, MWS readers can get free shipping through the end of the year on any order by contacting owner Jaime Coblentz directly ( ) and mentioning code “MWS-07”. And keep an eye out for their Spring/Summer ‘08 collection (available on the website in January 2008) – I had a chance to peak at some of the upcoming styles and you definitely don’t want to miss their spring-worthy hues and vastly expanded collection of tops, bottoms, and outwear.
