Wasp Wednesday

Happy WASP Wednesday. Meet Skip CLICK HERE!, one of my favorite male preppy bloggers.



When did you first learn of the preppy life, embrace it's style?

I first learned about the preppy life during my high school years. I went to an extremely preppy school in Delaware (The Tatnall School) but I must admit that I didn’t embrace it until college. During the first few months as an undergrad, I rebelled by wearing jeans and t-shirts on a daily basis but rather quickly found myself going back to my khakis and polo style from Tatnall. I just felt more comfortable in oxfords and loafers than sweatshirts and sneakers.

Do people call you a "metro sexual?"

I’ve never been called a “metro” mainly because I try to stay away from trends and Banana Republic. If you stick to classic pieces such as owning a British Khaki trench coat, a couple of knit and rep ties, a Timex watch with a few different color watch bands, penny loafers, and a handful of oxford shirts then you’ll quickly realize that you’re not going with the times but rather being timeless.

What do you think of preppy women? Are you married to a fellow prep?

Preppy women are the best! The preppier the better! I love reading Longwing’s Page where he finds pictures of preppies from the 70s and 80s who are straight out of TOPH.
And yes, I am married to a sweet preppy woman who dresses conservatively, adores pink and green, and loves LL Bean just as much as I do. 


Harvard...hmmm..Are you smart?

I wouldn’t say that I’m wicked smart but I would say that I’m a very curious and passionate person. So when I find something that peaks my interest, it totally consumes me until I accomplish that goal. I have to do whatever it takes see it through. Going to Harvard was one of those goals that I couldn’t let go of.  It also helps to have the woman that you want to marry already attending Harvard. 

 Collars Up!

  8. I have been following Skip for awhile. He is without a doubt a trad icon, but I admire him more for his unabashed love and devotion to his family. Archive him and you'll see what I mean. Great choice Beth for a male blogger.

  11. Skip is great, even if he is a Tatnall guy. I always like the adventures he goes on with his children I only hope he save all of his post about them for them to view when they get older.
