Men's Clothing: Is Preppy So Yesterday?

I loved this quote from a story today in the style section of the New York Times. I tend to feel the same way  about men's clothing at the moment. I don't find the preppy look as refreshing or interesting  as I did a few years ago (read: tortoise shell eye-wear, Red Wings, and button up to top  button dress shirts SNOOZE). I am in the mood for COLOR and (a little) whimsy on dudes. Throw on a pink lace dress for all I care! Just make it more interesting puleez. But, in the spirit of my post yesterday, and as Kirchhoff said, if you're that dude then do your thang. 

I am just one wo(man). What do you guys think?
