I was happy to see all of the suggestions on the "must haves" posting. All of the ideas are right up the preppy guy's alley. I think the number one thing for every preppy guy to remember is the preppy dress has most to do with what I like to call "classic comfort". It is not a fad and not some crazy outfit (although I'm sure we all had a few of them in college) and casual does not mean sloppy. Nothing is worse than seeing someone in a sloppy outfit in public...Have some pride.
On a totally different point (or maybe back to the weather) can ANYONE please explain why my (non-preppy) neighbour is mowing her lawn today. It's almost 100 outside and she is wearing jeans and a crappy tee shirt (I think it is one that she got free from buying two cases of Pepsi)
