Now the bad news. For a press of this caliber to screw up so badly with the type design is inexcusable. . . perhaps this was a job shunted off to somebody new on the staff, or to some uncaring soul in China. The typeface makes the book a loser: it is gray (why?) and sans serif (why?) and in a tiny size (why?). This makes the book very hard to read and limits its appeal.
"Preppy" really may have at one time BEEN preppy. It for many years now must just be considered Standard American Dress. There are important values connected with the style: clothing should be durable, well-made and built to last (thrift); it should not be offensive (consideration for others).
Richard Press (of J. Press fame) is obviously the key to the book: his thoughts and contributions are the soul of it.
DO OVER ASAP, IVY. Until then, zero stars if so few were mine to give.
One of the best parts is a long interview with Richard Press, former CEO of J. Press, where he gives insight into his business, and the style as a whole.
