Zachary Prell used to work in finance.

Now he teaches men how to dress better for a living.

Coincidence? (Har.)

All jokes aside, the eponymous designer just began offering private styling appointments in his New York showroom.

Shoot them a quick email to book your appointment and you’ll be on your way to a one-on-one walkthrough of the best new collections and some savvy wardrobe advice. Whether you need to shake up your entire look or just want to know the difference between pervenche and labrador, they’ve got you covered, quite literally.

To take the new service for a test run, we asked Prell to put together the perfect casual outfit for fall.

From Italian trousers so lightweight you’ll forget you’re wearing them to a superlative shirt jacket, here it is, in five easy pieces.

“This is my go-to pant. Seriously, I’m wearing them right now. The trousers, made from an Italian micro-weight wool and cotton stretch blend, are stamped with a faint chalk stripe that allows you to go from day to night seamlessly.”

“With its tucked rib stitch and tonal mélange yarn made in Italy, this sweater provides a much-needed touch of sophistication to the classic quarter-zip sweater. We have it in three colors for fall, but I love the coffee as a layering piece.”

“The Seymour, a lightweight wool stretch shirt jacket, is one of our key transitional pieces this season. Inspired by our sport shirt, I love the silhouette this gives when put on top of an outfit. I also love the pop of its fire engine red trim.”

Perrygold is truly unique because of its space-dyed fabric made exclusively by Albiati for Zachary Prell. Lightweight, super luxurious in feel and classic in color, Perrygold is a great basic to start any look.”

Sullivan Boot
“Armando Cabral, a longtime supporter and a close friend of mine, designs exceptional Italian leather shoes and boots here in New York. Complimenting my style perfectly, this navy suede shoe, the Sullivan, is my go-to with dark denim or a dressier trouser like the Rushmore.”
