Founded in 2013, Kipper Clothiers prides itself on bringing top quality custom menswear to both women and men. Inspired by our love of the Ivy League look, we have created a ready-wear line influenced by the rich American Heritage of the Ivy League called Kipper University. This casual collection is a modern take on old-school style, highlighting the beauty of classic basics that every Ivy devotee must own.
In the decade between 1955 and 1965, a clique of discerning Hollywood hipsters appropriated the Ivy League clothing of America's East Coast elite. These West Coast actors elevated the Ivy look to the height of cool and defined a quintessentially American dress code for a new generation of movie audiences.
In order to celebrate this turning point in fashion, Kipper University features the now classic products that inspired many of today’s fashion trends. Think of a varsity sweater or perfect pair of chinos – these are classic staples in many closets. We have put our own Kipper touch on these essentials, incorporating our signature colors, burgundy and navy to accentuate the simple, elegant nature of these pieces. Our goal is to inspire you to build your own fashion voice from this collection and incorporate these classic styles into your everyday wardrobe.
