If it makes you feel better 90% of my wardrobe is from J Crew while the remaining is northface or patagonia which isn't fratty either.

The same stuff that was in The Official Preppy Handbook.

I don't like calling it fratty, but I do approve of the demise of flannel shirts and Ed Hardy.

Well ... I have decided to go out and buy some fraternity style clothing. I was just wondering what to expect it to cost. Money is always tight, what with buying a paddle and everything. I just want to have an idea of what to expect this optional thing to cost.

Are they going to check your tags to see where they came from? You can get good looking clothing without breaking the bank. Check out TJ Maxx, Ross and Marshalls. Many of the stores mentioned above have outlet stores. Carry yourself to the outlet and spend much less

Well, I'm going with an active brother to the mall, so I'll try out Sears and Macy's. Although, considering the area I doubt I can stretch my buck too much.

Macy's usually has tons of coupons (and they are having a Columbus Day sale this weekend).
