This is THE original 1960s-era pure preppy guide book, originally titled "Blue Blazer, " written by the etiquette consultant to the White House and covers a wide range of essential life skills in an appealing jaunty writing style with advice, like preppy style, that is timeless. A preppy is someone who "dresses perfectly without trying to ... [and] appears to do everything well without trying to," as defined by Erich Segal, author of Love Story. Preppy style is so much more than the 80s parody of turned up collars and monogramed sweaters: Being preppy is all about timeless style, no better represented than in this original 1960s guide. This is the JFK generation: young men of wealth and opportunity living in an America of limitless potential, dominating the world stage and shooting for the moon. This book offers a wealth of instruction on essential topics on the road to manhood such as manners, good sportsmanship, dating protocols, how to conduct a meeting as a leader, "do's and don'ts" for grooming, how to navigate travel alone and, of course, classic preppy dress from blue blazers to button-down shirts to what goes best with madras!"
