Yes, the precursor to "yuppies". Around 1982, Izod shirts, argyle socks, docksiders, and blazers were the uniform of the Preppy.

Do you remember this? I was about 14 when this was popular.

Yes, I remember them too.

Now DS#1 and his friends call preppies the ones who still wear the Polo and Izod shirts and Levi jeans. He actually calls Chris a preppy...lol!!
