English term or phrase: preppy
No właśnie, jak spolszczyć ten termin, skoro prep schools nie są czymś kulturowo rozpoznawalnym nad Wisłą? Żeby było śmieszniej, osoba opisywana w moim tekście jest profesorem literatury na pewnym znanym prywatnym uniwersytecie, i to jego sweter jest "preppy."

Narratorka pochodzi z innego, bardzo konserwatywnego i zamkniętego świata (i na pewno nigdy w zyciu nie jeździła konno po Nowej Anglii, ani nawet nie oglądała takiego precederu):

"James, the poetry professor, has neat salt-and-pepper hair that spikes upward over his tall forehead, a barely perceptible gap between his two front teeth, and a long, lean body encased in a preppy knit sweater and the kind of jeans people wear when they go riding in New England, or so I think."
