It's mandatory to have a preppy side to your style if you live in Boston, or at least be able to look great in a gingham shirt when the situation calls for it. With the true preppy lifestyle, also comes the love for the outdoors and sport, and if you don't want to sacrifice style or performance, North River Outfitter is your destination.

The store stocks a mixture of Alden shoes, Patagonia fleeces, Harris Tweed blazers,  and technical running sneakers from New Balance and Saucony. You'll look great, but be prepared for shifting weather at a moment's notice.
