ohheyitslikepat-deactivated2012 asked: Hello Lisa. I am a big fan of "The Preppy Handbook". Anyways, I have a fashion question. My closet consists of mostly Ralph Lauren (Polo and Rugby), Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger, and etc. I just bought this khaki colored military jacket from Old Navy and I would like know if this is preppy or not? P.S I can't wait to get my copy of "True Prep", it's coming this Tuesday! -Patrick

Oh hey,  why don’t you send a picture of your jacket?  On the other hand, Old Navy is filled with basics, and they’re usually well-priced (bordering on cheap) which makes most preppies very happy.  If you wear it with a button-down shirt, and a ribbon belt in your belt loops, it could be quite smart.
