Has anyone else noticed the prep infusion of late? Now, now. Don't get me wrong. Prep has been around since way before now (and even before Zack Morris). And I've always been on the fringes of prep. I don't think that anyone who knows me would call me super preppy. But, as Ann Marie might say, I have tendencies. You won't catch me wearing boat shoes, though, unless I actually make it to Nantucket one day.
This is not a hate post. Let me clear that up right away. But I think that sometimes the tragically hip take things way too far. That said, I'd much rather see copious amounts of plaid and denim to anything Ed Hardy. And I like that brands like LL Bean and Lands' End, which have been around forever, are doing new lines.
