Prep Neck

I gave my sister a L.L.Bean camo tote for her Birthday and in true EAS fashion had to order one for myself. We took the bags to the fabulous Star Monograms to have them personalized. Social Primer has posted about the term Prep Neck and Alice and I have toyed with the term Prep Hick. I think these totes may fit the criteria!

This past weekend I had a Prep Neck moment while using my camo tote and wearing my Varinas. Every chance I get I have been reaching for my camo tote and leaving my Goyards to collect dust...my inner Prep Neck is unleashing itself!

You know you are a Prep Neck when your camo belt is needlepoint! What do y'all think constitutes a Prep Neck?

I'm in love with the Camo! What size bag is that?

Prippy Handbook said...

Hilarious term! I have the camo tote myself, although the monograms really up the bags game. I feel like I can't walk into the LL Bean in Freeport without walking out with a tote and Bean Boots!

Too funny! In college, I'd have to say that the country boys who wore Red Wing boots with their khakis, needlepoint belts and button downs may have been Prep Necks.

DAM said...

I always thought of this distinction as a Southern Prep.

I have the medium tote and my sister has the large. As far as I am concerned anywhere there are rednecks there can be prepnecks! xx

Love this! I have a camo koozie with my monogram in hot pink that I am obsessed with.

We sportsmen love our camo....I have the Bean totes in camo to carry gear in the duck hunting boat. I posted a while back on being dubbed an "honorary redneck" by some hunting buddies...so I probably am a "Prep-neck"

Omg, I totally forgot about ordering mine! Merci for the reminder EAS. If I order now I can drop it off in Annap for detailing on my way to BWI in 2 weeks. Annnd, I think I'm a gonna have to lift SAS's mono style and color :)

I laughed out loud when I read the title of your post! Very funny! I think there are a lot of prep necks around me here in the South. Have a great day!

If you monogram your shotgun, you might be a "prep neck"

Nelle Somerville said...

The PINK thread is just the most brilliant part of that tote! You are too cute for words. There is nothing cuter than a big ole ancient Ford Bronco that conjures up my Prep Neck cousins hunting in Memphis, ducks splayed out in the back. :)

Well, now your sister has something to put the pulled pig lunch that she taking to range to shoot some clays with friends...right? Total Prepneck don't you think ya'll?

Too dang cute. I'm loving that term and the funny juxtaposition that "prep neck" entails!

Love it!! Maybe camo Tory Burch's?? xoxo

JRS said...

I agree with DAM: I always thought of this distinction as a Southern Prep.

Looks tough, EAS!

The Zhush said...

THAT is hilarious! Tory Burch has a few camo things as well...clearly this is a big fab trend! LOVE the monograms...wish there was a place near here that would do such a gorgeous job!

Kristi said...

Love this bag! Totally ordered one for myself! Cannot wait to get it.

Tricia said...

love this! would recommend the medium or large for a work tote? also, are the straps long enough to wear over your shoulder? thanks!

Let The Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore said...

I would go with a medium. The straps are short...But I can get it over my shoulder w/o a coat. xx
