Noun (Prep): Comes from identifiying one who goes to a prepratory or "prep" school (typically on the East Coast), or a school with the intent of preparing its students for college (often Ivy League).
Has come to be an label for those who conform to typical teenage behavior, in areas like clothing, school behavior, and sports participation, because preps usually are more ambitious and/or image-conscious than others.
Popular belief is that preps hate nerds/goths/punks/etc, however, generally, preps pay little attention to other "types," and those who hate preps with the most passion are those who were once preps and have recently gone away from their previous behavior, and often people who are posers intent on protecting their alternative-ness.
Prep has become to be nearly synonymous with conformist, to the point where most preps have been in denial of their typecast, and it is seen as an insult in the eyes of many.
Preppy is the adjective form, Preppily is the adverb.
The prep dreamed of going to a school that wasn't too far from where her quarterback boyfriend got a scholarship.
Bob wouldn't talk to Annie; He thought her interest in MTV and popular culture made her too preppy.
Tiffany started dressing very preppily over the summer, shedding her all-black dress code for the latest styles.

A collared shirt with a polo horse on it. A timeless shirt that retails around $65. Haters just can't afford them and thats a shame, maybe instead of bitching about the cost they could just buy one at an outlet store or a consignment shop. Although they do cost alot of money they have been in style for 25 years at least and have another 25 years to go, so the shirts are a good investment as long as you dont change sizes.

A true preppy is someone who:
Wears, but is not limited to, Polo, Lilly, Brooks Brothers, Lacoste, LL Bean (ie duck boots), ribbon belts, prints (ie cords with embroidered whales, palm trees, etc), sweaters tied around the neck, collar always popped, looks neat and put together. Hair ribbons or ribbon headbands, pearls, and other classic jewelry pull the look together. Preppies are partial to monogrammed and engraved items (ie tote bags, oxford shirts, jewelry, money clips, etc). Colors are always brite (favorites include pink and lime green). Preppies may not always match EXACTLY but they are always coordinated. Hats are worn (ie polo player, Lacoste, Brooks Brothers), but they are unique- not designs you would see in the mainstream and the "mall".
Preppies often attend prep schools (ie Middlesex School, Governor Dummer Academy, and Belmont Hill) followed by New England private colleges.
They are confident and unafraid to express their own styles and be daring in their fashions. Preppies vacation on Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Delray Beach, and on the coast of Maine. These vacation locales are places their families have been going to for years, and have histories there.
It is a common misconception that preppies are snobs. Many people view them as unapproachable, and as a result mislabel them. Preppies are not as rich as people may think they are, but they are often well off. They buy into classics rather than trends, and don't change their lifestyles with fads.
Preppies tend to have bizarre connections with other preppies they meet, always finding mutual friends/ family and people that run in the same circle.

Preppies don't:
* Wear tight, skin exposing clothing (ie fitted Abercrombie sexual tshirts with tight flared jeans)
* Limit themselves to mall shopping and chain stores. They gravitate towards long-established classic stores and boutiques unique to quaint New England towns.
* Wear heavy makeup and endless hair products. The phrase "less is more" is a preppy creed.
* Glue purses to their arms, especially when going to school. Lip gloss and if need be, a wallet, are thrown into tote bags along with books.
Les whispered to Tyler that Linds looked very preppy with her pink popped Pulitzer, cable knit cardigan and pearls.

A clothing store that is so expensive that gift certificates make you pay extra for the clothes you buy. The company will, in many cases, "pre-wrinkle" the shirts for you. Jeans can also be purchased with a holes already in them. The clothes feel, oddly enough, like they've already been used.

Since whoever wrote the last entry was young, foolish, and obviously under educated in Izod, I will explain how Izod came to be.

Izod and Lacoste used to be part of the same company, and the clothing line was originally called "Izod Lacoste" and featured a small crocodile emblem.

Eventually Izod and Lacoste had differences of opinion over labor of the products. Izod wanted to design clothes in France, and have them made in foreign countries with cheap labor. Lacoste wanted no part of it, and kept design and manufacture in France while Izod split off and did his own thing. Eventually now you see that since Lacoste kicked the bucket, the new owner of the company went the way Izod wanted to go originally and all Lacoste shirts are now "Designed in France, Made in wherever".

So, that is the REAL story of Izod, and how they went from having a crocodile to a crest on their shirt. As well, when I was a teenager in the 80's, they were always just referred to as "Izod" and Lacoste was sort of passe as if that part of the company name didn't matter. It was an IZOD, and it was famous for the crocodile.

Overpriced clothing, no different from any other cotton shirt or denim jeans. A company that is trying to sell a pathetic image while brainwashing teens into slapping down $60 bucks for a shirt. Is there some kind of "special material" or "quality" that these shirts have? No, foolhearted children, its just the big fat aberslobby logo that was crudely stamped on by the same malaysian sweatshop worker who made my shirts that I found for 7 bucks. If you think that you feel more comforable in some rags that scream "look at me, I'm rich and pay 60 bucks for a shirt" then you are quite a materialistic person. The store's always blast a thumpin' beat that disgraces any kind of music. They wouldn't want to play anything that would "turn away" any A&F mind jobs and their daddy's fat wallets. Notice all the people that shop there all fit the same type of mold. Rich, materialsitic, dumb, blonde girls, and rich, prep/fag, "popular" guys. I guess all of the money that A&F has been sapping from teens has been put into very good marketing, To bad it wasn't accutually going into making a better product, in to which it should be.
Clueless Blonde:"Hey girls lets go to abercrombie and fitch, my dad just gave me 450 dollars, I can get the 2 new shirts I wanted!"
Materialistic Friends:"Yay!"
A&F Employee/Male Model:"Hey ladies theres a sale on jean marked down to only 129.99!"

Fag1:"I need to go to A&F and spend lots of money"
Fag2:"What did you say?"
Fag1:"I need to go to A&F"
Fag2:"No you didn't, what was that last part?"
Fag1:"Like whateva, girlfriend, you be trippin'"
