Fall is my favorite season of the year; between the cider, changing leaves and prep school football, it’s one of the best times of the year. We at Twines & Vines want to celebrate the fall in the best way possible: Halloween Costume Contest. Certain students love getting dressed up and getting wild, so why not win an award for doing it?
- 2 Categories – Guys, Girls
- Submissions will be accepted from now until the Wednesday following Halloween (11/7/12). Upload your pictures to our Facebook page.
- We will place each entry into the appropriate category photo album on our Facebook page, and you get to vote for the winner.
- The guy and girl with the most votes at the end of the week will win a special surprise courtesy of Twines & Vines.
So guys get creative and girls get crazy!
For inspiration, The Boss’ old classmates dressed as Hall and Oates last year… it was classic to say the least.
THERE’s your headline!
Absolutely the worst looking bikini I have ever seen. Literally the worst look ever, and if other girls start copying it, I will be crushed.
Everywhere I turned on Cape Cod, I could not escape the headlines about Taylor Swift snuggling with Conor Kennedy. In case you are living under a rock and only briefly emerged for some Sunny Delite and Pop-Tarts, Conor Kennedy is the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy. He is also a JUNIOR at Deerfield Academy, a legendary prep school in Massachusetts.
The newspaper headlines have been abuzz about Kennedy and his GF Taylor Swift crashing his cousin’s wedding, and the bride’s mother getting all up in arms about it.
Personally, I do not get Taylor Swift. Yeah, you have been in love. You have been dumped. Get over it. There are about a dozen girls in my school who are easily better looking than Taylor Swift. If they could sing and write crappy songs, they would be multi-millionaires (on their own, not counting their family money).
The REAL headline should be that a Deerfield Academy student is hooking up with Taylor Swift. That is your hook-up hero right there! How much of a god will Conor Kennedy be next month when he gets back to Deerfield? Do you think that his bros will be hitting him up for details?
If Mackay Lowrie’s highlight tape doesn’t get you pumped for Saturday prep school football games, I don’t know what will. I haven’t seen any QB in the ISL this good since Jordan Johnson of Brooks/BYU (QB/DB). The Boston College commit from Roxbury Latin led the ISL with 1500 yards passing. He was also 3rd in the ISL with 500 yards rushing. Also note, ISL football teams only play 8 games a season. We hope Lowrie helps RL find success this fall. It’d be sweet to see him in a few years bringing BC back into the top 25!

Parker Regan, graduate of Suffield Academy
A teen who had just graduated from a posh Connecticut boarding school was killed in Montana when he “fell out” of an ATV driven by his drunken former roommate, police said.
Honor-roll student Parker Regan, 19, was killed early Thursday when his ex-roommate, Sinclair Welch, 19, tried and failed to navigate a turn at the luxury Yellowstone Club, a ski and golf resort for millionaires, cops said.
Regan died from his injuries, and Welch was charged with vehicular homicide while under the influence and held on $50,000 bail at the Gallatin County jail in Montana, local news reports said.
Both teens attended the $48,400-a-year Suffield Academy, in Suffield, Conn., and were on vacation at the $18,000-a-year resort — which counts Bill Gates as a member — with Welch’s family.
Welch’s father, Leighton Welch, is the founder of Welch Capital Partners LLC. Regan’s father was a founding partner of the health care consultancy The Chartis Group. Welch was recently named a senior all-star on the boys soccer team, the school’s Web site showed.
“They’re great boys; I adore them,” said a Welch family friend and neighbor.
This is the feel-bad story of the summer. Listen up my prep school brothers: If you are going to have a few beers and have access to an ATV, just watch some clips of “Jackass” on your iPhone and stay inside. Don’t get behind the wheel.
This story just sucks, and I need to read or see something good and I need to read it yesterday. Where are the photos of the Italian Olympic women’s volleyball team? Here, look at these, quick:
I have a confession. I was trifling through my things getting ready to leave my house for a day trip and came to the realization that I have a serious problem. It’s called monogramitis. This terrible disease is basically the need to monogram everything one owns. From pillow cases to gym shorts to my backpack, I have my initials on practically everything. Not only is monogramitis a personal issue, but it is infectious and has caused many of my friends to start down its dangerous path. It has proven quite difficult for me not to adore things that are specifically mine and cannot be mistaken for anyone else’s so I have decided that, despite how risky this is, I need to share my love of monogrammed items with all of you. I have found Converse shoes, iPhone cases, virtually indestructible “Roadie” cups, and rain boots that can be monogrammed to your liking. (By the way, Vineyard Vines also has phone cases that make me happier than a five-year-old in Disney World.) If monogrammed things aren’t for you, that’s fine too. I discovered some classy knit bow ties to keep you/your guy’s preppy neck warm for the fall and winter and some tacky shorts to watch the London Olympics in. Enjoy!
Send in pictures of your favorite monogrammed item to the Twines & Vines Twitter page and you may be featured on our Instagram!

Independence Day, also know as the 4th of July is only 5 days away. Hopefully, you already have your most American apparel ready but in case you don’t, the staff at Twines & Vines wanted to put together a patriotic apparel guide. You don’t want to end up like the Boss, who a few years ago wore a Ferrari shirt on the 4th, which unbeknownst to him had a tiny Italian flag on the neck. People were not too happy with that move, Boss.

Hey everyone! My name is Sarah and this is my first post as the newest T&V girl editor. I’ll be taking you all along with me on my summer adventures on the Cape, in the Hamptons, and anywhere else life takes me. I’m a preppy kid from the north *gasp* who loves Lilly, lacrosse, sailing, and boys in bow ties. I can’t wait to share my music, tastes, and lifestyle with you!
♥ Stay Preppy
BY THE WAY
I realize that there is a new Preppy Handbook called “True Prep” but that is purely incidental and I did not realize that was the name of the sequel until I had already adopted the name but feel free to check it out anyway.
Any guy who attends prep school is constantly distracted by the abundance of beautiful young ladies at our schools. Walk around almost any campus and you see brains & beauty for days.
The question is really just a matter of which school has the most beautiful students? Of course, if you asked anyone at Nobles, they would say Nobles, but every school has their share. Is it Groton? Hotchkiss? Pomfret? Tabor? St. Gorgeous?
Here at Twines & Vines have decided to set up a weekly competition amongst prep school hotties! We’re calling it our Halyard Hotties contest. We would like you, the readers, to submit your favorite hotties from Founders, ISL, EIL or whatever prep affiliation they fall under.
Ladies are absolutely welcome to submit their own profile. Gentlemen, you MUST ask the girl’s permission before submitting, so when they receive an email from us they aren’t completely creeped out. Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your hottie’s Facebook page, and get ready for this summer to get even hotter!
Being chosen as a Halyard Hottie will get you on the list as a possible model for some of our friends at preppy apparel companies. Winners also receive a prize pack courtesy of The Boss.
