Although i've been trying to escape my preppiness it's hard because it's such an easy, thoughtless look to pull off. Plus is v.comfortable.

True. I associate being a prep with being a snobby bitch as well.

This is the sort of style I have. I steer away from preppy and try to stay sophisticated, a look that is universally accepted as being dressed nicely. You know, something that can always be pulled off at any professional work place.

Yeh I know what you mean, I'm a cross between both although plaid skirts and cashmere sweaters are basically uniform at my school.

- im just going to spam pictures of preppy clothes through this thread now haha

Ok this just made me laugh

Now this is a first. Harvard (yes, that Harvard) is launching a contemporary menswear line called Harvard Yard.

The university just signed a ten-year licensing deal with Wearwolf Group, a major clothing manufacturer.

The clothes won't say "Harvard University" on them or don the schools colors except in the fine details (think crimson buttonholes) as they aren't geared toward their own students, but a larger contemporary male demographic.

The line, which will range in price from $165 for pants to $495 for sport coats, was inspired by photos of students lounging in Harvard Yard in the '60s.

John Fowler, creative director for the line, says "it's a style that has become current again and not just with the American consumer. We think Harvard Yard will have global appeal."

This is all fine and well, but there is one lingering questionÖ why???
