I just ran across this fascinating cultural history article about Preppy Menswear tonight and know that it would be perfect for my blog readers' enjoyment as well: "Damned Dapper: The Preppy "Go-to-Hell" Look" by Christian Chensvoid, Style Writer for the Huffington Post; Posted April 1st, 2010.
Here's the link for it: www.huffingtonpost.com/christian-chesvoid/damned-dapper-the-preppy_b_512406.html
I really enjoyed not only the information presented but the author's style of writing as well. Am hoping that more articles of this nature pop up within the Huffington Post's Style Section which is something I check out every now and then. Now if only I could get James into some great Madras Preppy Pants this summer! I doubt however that he'd wear the pants featured above in the photo- it takes a special kinda' "Go to..." attitude to sport these no doubt!
