Classic Preppy: Tucker Carlson

The sources of his belts and shoes are unknown. He favours plain belts with a silver engine turned buckle and surcingle belts with emblematics on the webbing. His shoes range from brown tassel or Venetian loafers to L.L.Bean boots with the traditional rubber toe and chain tread sole. He's been spotted in both the traditional 8" lace up and Rubber Moc versions. I don't condone wearing them with sport coat, tie, and chinos as he does, but he may have his own personal reason for it.
Tucker Carlson provides a decent template on how to dress preppy, even if his fit could be improved. I would suggest looking into other shoe options besides loafers and Bean Boots, such as a nice pair of wingtips, especially for wearing with suits. As Ivy Style noted, he received his primary education at the private St. George's School and later went to Trinity College, which would explain him dressing more or less the same since high school.
What do you think of his style? Sound off below.
