A person who is from an upper middle class family and typically went to private or PREP school (boarding or day). They wear clothes from Brooks Brothers, Polo Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, J. Crew, J. Press, and L.L. Bean (to name a few) because they will never go out of style. They dress this way because they have acquired good taste from their parents and peers. Preps do NOT, as many non-preps seem to believe, wear Abercrombie, Hollister, or American Eagle. These people are merely poor(bad) imitators. However, being preppy is a lifestyle not a fashion. There is more to being a prep than just dressing tastefully. Being a prep means that you most likely attended Cotillion once a month as you grew up, spent summers at the cape or somewhere similar, play tennis, like to watch crew, and love horseback riding. Being a prep means that you have a certain way of speaking wether it be locust valley lockjaw or Boston Brahmin. All preps have read The Official Preppy Handbook (1980) and all non-preps who think they know what a prep is should read it.
Biff: "When do you think people will stop refering to average public school kids as preps just because they pop their collars?"
Skip: "I guess the same time they realize that true preps don't shop at Abercrombie and Fitch."
