Description & features

From Lisa Birnbach, the author of The Official Preppy Handbook-and designer Chip Kidd-comes a whole new take on the prep world. True prep is a contemporary look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapt to the new order of things. Birnbach considers the prep attitude towards money, schools, wardrobe, work, decorating, scandal, and food and drink. She also looks at weekends, entertaining, sports, weddings, etiquette, the Internet and electronic gadgetry, political correctness, reality TV, and . . . polar fleece. And last but not least: a do-it-yourself eulogy. With more than 200 original illustrations and photographs, True Prep promises to be a whole new, old sensation. Random House Publishing, printed in the USA.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KUDOS Kudos to Brooks Bros. for feauturing a book on their website and selected pages, which clearly displays the products and name of a prominent competing company (whom I won't name, but whose founder was born and raised in the Bronx). I don't know of one other company that would do something like this. But when you're the original, I guess you can do anything. February 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great book For those of you who used the "Preppy Handbook" as reference to "correct preppy dressing" The "True Prep" book is a must have as it is written by the same author. First, a lot has changed in 30 years , so the True Prep book serves as an update to where Preppies are shopping now. The author has once again provided a list of stores and outfit examples of what Preppies should where. You can't go wrong. It's good to see just how much conservative dressing stays in style and is still the look that Brooks Brothers has offered throughout the years. October 20, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Bible for so many... this is a great book, and I had already bought several copies for gifts. Purchased several more for signature at the event. Not sure why it was $5 more per copy??? October 20, 2010

Does the book include a sector for women and information for women as the original book did? Thanks.

Answer: 
Yes it does. It is in nearly the same format as the "Preppy Handbook" and gives "updated" styles and stores to shop from as well as women's outfit examples.
