its funny how ppl are saying, real preps were polo and lactose, and American Eagle is just a poser brand. Did you ever think that people don't buy the clothes because they wanna be a prep? Maybe they buy the clothes because they like the way they look *gasp* thats a new concept
Prep: Oh my gawd, your a American Eagle poser, your not wearing lactose.
AE Wearer: Maybe I'm not trying to be a prep, maybe its stupid paying a lot of money for clothes, when a cooler cheap alternative is right in front of you
