Hello Friends! It’s TPG Rant Time! For my first time readers, this is a segment where I address people, hot-topics and other things that I find of interest.
What I think has been a little bit of a hard pill to swallow is the idea that because I am “The Prep Guy,” some people have assumed that I have to be preppy at all times of my life. To be honest, The Prep Guy is just the pen name of my blog. I do not like to be categorized for my style because it limits people to their thoughts of “how I should dress”, and for myself, that is not being authentic. I like to wear what I want to wear, and I think it is unfair for outsiders to assume that because a I wear a certain thing or because of my pen name, that I should be placed into a box. This also applies to other bloggers out there… they are expected to dress a certain way due to their pen name or how people want them to dress, and it is just obnoxious. At the end of the day I find it ridiculous that people can judge a book by its cover, but would never want that to happen in return.
Though it is unfortunate that the person had a negative view of my personal “style” per say, I could care less about his perception of my personal style is because I would rather be genuine, and having the burden of shaping my looks around the thoughts of others would just drive me crazy.
At the end of the day I wear bow-ties because I like wearing bow-ties, I wear J. Lindeberg because I like J. Lindeberg and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it.
I know that this post is a lot wordier than my usual posts but I hope that one of my readers can take something out of it.
