When most of my friends try to act "preppy", they usually put their collar up, where colorful belt with patterns, and go to A&E, and, as everyone has been saying, A&F...as well as the new edition which is very similar to both of them, Hollister (it's more Californian though). But they're incredibly wrong. While it's true that many preps put their collar up (which I admit that I have done it before because I have to wear polos at school because of my dress-code...), and pink and bright colors often will attract them, preps stick to classics, that are not very up-to-date. They do not change their style because of trends, like the "infamous" Abercrombie and American Eagle. While these two stores do have some preppy clothes, like khaki pants and polos, they mostly have trendy styles.more...
Let me get this straight, once and for all...preps are not trendy! I'm not saying this in an opinionated way, I'm saying it as preps don't change their style just because there's a new trend out there. Preps are preps, and they stick to it. And though there a popular preps, if you are a prep you are not neccessarily popular. That rumor and reputation of the preps is blown out of porportion.
Oh, and the next thing I will bring up: the "rumor" that preps are snobbish people who think they are better than everyone else. Well, I can very well understand why people think this; It's because preps where polos and slacks, and they are often pretty organized, but this cannot be assumed about ever p...

"One of the more underplayed sociological demographics in this country is the wealthy, genteel Southerner from H-SC. Too often, we deride the South for its gun racks, or its lack of dental hygiene. But the rich boys of Hampden-Sydney? That's a thing. They crawl all over the hill for Greek Week . It's the hottest spot in the South during April. Genetically-superior babes in tight tops and short skirts roam the grass, usually on the arm of a trust-funder in his early 20s. You know these guys: Ralph Lauren polos; University of Georgia baseball caps, well-worn; and a bloodline that includes a great-grandfather who invented the paper clip, which provides for the summer mansion on Sea Island" Fortune Magazine
The article speaks for itself, HSC guy are number one when it comes to money, ladies, and class.
A female German exchange student who is really cute. She has blonde hair green eyes and a wonderful round ass and rack. She also has pig tails. She wears clothing that is more stylish than the girls here. It includes a lot of boots and short skirts. Unfortunately....she queefs a lot. Meaning she farts out of her pussy. She is, and all German girls who do this can be reffered to as Queefmeisters. It's somewhat a German word.
Kind of a bastardation. (that's meant to be ironic)
In Ireland (Westmeath)(where i'm from)we call townies ''skangers'' but I'm writin bout dem in the townie section coz more people will see it.

Appearance: UGLY. Their faces are mangled from all the fights they get themselves into. They wear tracksuit bottoms with names like nike, adidas, kappa etc. and a hoodie with a logo on the front and they are usually white. higher class skangers will wear checked shirts. they wear baseball caps(usually nike) at a ridiculously vertical angle on their heads and have a greased fringe spiked up. Their shoes are always white and more than likely made by nike. The female skangers look like pure slappers. they wear short skirts and runners or high heeled hooker boots and a skimpy top or else a hoodie with a pointless logo. they have greasy hair and huge hooped earrings and are usually smoking.
Habitat: usually they gather in groups outside supermacs or macdonalds or whatever or sometimes can be seen in parks at night doin drugs, drinkin, smokin, rapin g...
