Celebrating the Preppy Lifestyle and it's sensibilities


O.k., so I'm reading an article the other day and there was a mention of modern preppy.  I honestly didn't know there was such a thing.  This got me thinking of what is truly classic prep and I've started to compile a list, just for fun.  I was originally going for the top 10 but ended up with 20.  There is surely more to add to the list.  If the readers of this blog would be inclined to add their picks and why, I'm sure it would be a lot of fun to see. 
This list is in no particular order.

1.  Beans Ducks and Mocs

2.  The Cruisers-really the only appropriate form of transportation on Nantucket

3.  Khakis

4.  The Tote

5.  Bass Weejuns, duct tape anyone?

6.  J Press, the true giants of Preppy Attire

7.  Duck Motifs

8.  The wagons, Mercedes, BMW, Volvo-what else can haul your hydrangeas around?

9.  Topsiders, the only appropriate deck shoe

10.  Oxford Cloth Button Down Shirts

11.  Loafers-no socks needed

12.  Blue Blazer, enough said

13.  Timex Watch-rolex are for yuppies!

14.  Pearls

15.  Lilly Pulitzer, but only when the weather permits!

16.  Polos, our version of a tee shirt

17.  Head scarves

18.  Barn Coat

19.  Ray Ban Wayfarers or Aviators,

20.  Wooden Yachts-maintenance is hell but well worth it!
