Overview of Companies, Past and Present (Including Those Often Referred to as Preppy and Trad)

Here is the most recent life cycle chart.  This chart is an opinion piece, for fun and conversation starting, not complete, nor actual analysis.

For those new to this, this chart strives to plot the current state of some clothing and accessory vendors - including some described as preppy and trad - as they evolve from young, innovative companies on the left of the chart to company shells/cautionary tales on the right.

Reds; Nantucket Reds From Murray's Toggery; What to Wear With Nantucket Reds; and Alternatives


Reds, such as Nantucket Reds, are an iconic style and color of pants. 
Probably long before Murray's Nantucket Reds were invented, the red pants of choice of yachtsmen and crew, were of course the 'real' Breton Reds. Long ago I picked up a pair of these classic yachting pants while sailing the Channel Races. The pants, after a while, turned a fabulous washed out red that could only be achieved by being on the ocean (not counting the Nantucket fast ferry). They were soft, the right degree of "baggy" and worn by just about every blue water sailor. (Comment, skiwithapro, May 28, 2013)
As to the choice of pants: Murray's are, sadly, now made in China, but at least as of last summer, they were still the heavier sailcloth. In my experience, the Chinese products fade less quickly. (The ones in the older color on the shelves at Murray's are almost certainly unsold pleated pants.) I'm a customer of the Nobby shop and enjoy shopping there, but it's simply a different product. Think cocktails, not clamming; garden parties, not golf. I own both and use them for different purposes.(Comment, February 14, 2013)
