K atie A rmour by F.E. C astleberry
Ever since he challenged his prep school dress code by substituting bright blazers with custom accents for the standard navy, Kiel James Patrick has been slowly defining and refining the aesthetic of the twenty-first century prep. The young and stylish entrepreneur eventually dropped out of college to model and in no time had folks asking for his custom designs on set. Demand grew and a fashion business based on New England tradition was born. Each item sold in Kielâ€™s eponymous line is made in his home state of Rhode Island by local craftsmen, a major point of pride. There the designer lives the American dream with his lovely partner-in-crime, girlfriend, and business partner Sarah Vickers. Matchbook was honored to spend the afternoon with the handsome couple and learn what makes them tick.
