Preppy Style has been Taken Away from The Preps.
It's now nothing more than a Madison Avenue plaything. I was going to post this on my website but I thought it would be more important to ask you here about it first. How many of you, who are True Preps, are wondering just how far this will go? Madison Avenue and a host of bloggers (think Fred Castleberry aka Mammoth Men (WTH?)) who have nothing that looks like a prep tradition to me have taken it all away.
Our Heritage. Gone. Taken away by a bunch of people who don't understand What Prep Is.
And that's the thing about Prep. It is a heritage. It is a set of values. It is not a fashion, or a fashion item, made in Bangladesh or somewhere else. As a Prep, the thought of that actually makes me feel ill, and I've been to Bangladesh, and never got ill there.
I'd like to know yours.
