Preppy's Brand
Magdalen sends her apologies and asked me to put up this placeholder post until she gets a chance to do her stuff. More anon. Oh, and we think the answer is Izod , which in crosswords seems always to be clued with reference to preppiness ... maybe that's it...

Introduction
I'm Ross Beresford aka Crossword Man, a lifelong crossword puzzle addict from Oxford, England. After mastering cryptic crosswords, I became editor of The Listener Crossword - the toughest of them all. I've also edited and proofread numerous crossword dictionaries and compilations. I'm the author of TEA and Sympathy - Windows software for solving and compiling crosswords. In 2007 I married Magdalen Braden and emigrated to the USA. We live in the historic Laban Capron House in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. Now that I've settled into this strange country, I'm discovering a whole new world of crosswords. The Crossword Man Blog described my transition from a British to an American crossword puzzle solver.
