“Hi, my name is Preppy Croc, and I’m a tie-o-holic.” If you’ve never been to this meeting before, the correct response in a very affirming tone would be, “Hi, Preppy Croc!” You’re just seeing the top layer of my tie rack. There are several layers more underneath this one. 52 ties total. All but four were thrifted, some for as little as .99 cents. Most are Brooks Brothers and 100% silk or linen/silk blends. Some are 100% cotton madras. None contains polyester! You may also consider me a tie hoarder. Not so bad. In fact, much better smell-wise than cat hoarding. I sense a new reality show on the horizon, but that would be a decidedly unprep. Hmmm.
