You won't get stung by this WASP book,
This review is from: A Privileged Life: Celebrating Wasp Style (Hardcover)
I'm more of a WASH (White, Anglo-'phile', Saxon-ish Hebrew) than a WASP. But this book is sooo not about church, it is about cocktails and polo (the shirt and the sport and the brand). I like the ecumenism of Navy jackets with brass buttons, the word 'bespoke' and the photography of Slim Aarons, along with all things chintz. If it helps- think "Preppy" think "Yankee" think "Sperry Top Siders as formal wear" and order this book. It is not as good or as lush as collections of Slim Aarons, it is very good and worth the price.
