Dandies Online: Unabashedly Prep

On Sunday I was shot by Fred Castleberry for his blog Unabashedly Prep. The photo generated some "spirited" comments both positive and negative. I was most amused by one commenter who suggested that it was ridiculous that I was wearing a newsboy cap and that one should "never, ever wear a newsboy cap unless you’re an extra in a WWII troop homecoming parade movie" and "there’s little cool - or dandy - about looking like a newsboy selling papers on a street corner in the mid 1940s". I just keep imagining what he would have to say about one of my several friends who wear top hats on a regular basis!

well, in my humble opinion, I think you look amazing. I think that people should read up on different styles before they go commenting. There's a total difference between dandy and prep or ivy (just sayin)

I also think you look amazing!
I admire personal style and you sir are an inspiration for a lot of us that try to stand out and not to fit in.

Well now you are controversial :) I suppose we just all have to remember to keep on doing what we want no matter what anyone says.

Unabashedly Prep is along the lines of J Crew: trendy, not preppy.

Be not afraid! It's comments like those that keep people locked in the boring box of navy blazer, white shirt and blue tie.
