Official Preppy Handbook, 1980[edit]

Lisa Birnbach's Official Preppy Handbook was published in October 1980, not 1979. Article corrected. Also, the author's name was listed as "Birnback", not Birnbach, her correct name. This has also been corrected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.122.76.118 (talk) 22:39, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Okay, seriously, wtf is going on with the Thread Count section? Who in god's name wrote it and how can we stop them from writing anything else ever? Is it one sentence? Is it two? Why are there so many parentheticals? I'm having trouble here.[edit]

I don't know who typed the above, but what is "Marino" fiber? I think there is a sheep variety called "Merino"? Also, most of this article reads like a nice eighth grade paper. Huw Powell (talk) 03:51, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

The threadcount paragraph is unreferenced, so I've just deleted it. I agree that the whole article could use a rewrite, but I personally don't have enough time or knowledge of this subject.Dialectric (talk) 08:39, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
