Preppy style, what to wear, number 12:

GTH pants take some serious getting used to. This is a style of its own and one that will net you looks of disdain and nods of approval as you walk around in them. They are obnoxious but so much fun to wear. Brooks Brothers once said that it is like playing a game of chicken with your friends except no one goes off a cliff. Instead, the winner is viewed as the most daring dresser around. Just use some caution with what you pair with them.

Loafers, like boat shoes, are synonymous with coastal culture. There are a variety of loafers on the market from the most casual forms to semi-dress shoes. They are typically categorized as being a low, lace-less shoe that you slip on and wear out, rather than as a slipper indoors. Traditionally, loafers are a casual shoe, but recently many preps have begun wearing them with lounge suits or to work at offices with a more relaxed dress code. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and materials and occasionally will feature tassels or decorations on the front of the shoe.

L.L. Bean boots were founded in 1912 by Leon Leonwood Bean, and quickly known for their boots. Originally, they were hunting boots made of rubber and organically treated full grain cowhide to resist water. The characteristic look was achieved by a crepe rubber sole and contrasting brown or tan uppers. While most boots today are lined with Gore-Tex, back then a simple wool lining was the norm. Of course, they now sell all kinds of other outdoor-related items, but the Bean boots in different heights and variations are still a favorite with preps.
