Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style

Preppy has always been acknowledged as an inherently American phenomenon, a fashion- or anti-fashion as some have called it- whose imagery perpetually connects us to idyllic college days, sport, and the spirit and vitality of youth.

 Jeffrey Banks

From the same author who brought us the previously blogged about Tartan:Romancing the Plaid, comes Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style. A full history of the beginnings and growth of the American preppy style, this is a really interesting book that will definitely be on my Christmas list!
