What you said was factually incorrect. If it's important for you to believe faleshoods, then just ignore me. There are many ways to point out falsehoods. Some of those ways are (unnecessarily) dismissive and condescending. I believe it's true that, like you say, most finance elites are not preppy any more. But if you want to continue this discussion constructively, please don't ignore my replies, which you force me to repeat: - Allen is in his seventies. - "My initial claim, properly understood (remember: this is a clothing forum), is that the use of preppy clothing can create a look that is associated with the traditional image of Eastern WASP elites etc."
