Too many preppy alligators

Sadly, the Boatman Geller preppy alligator has raised some eyebrows with LaCoste and has been deemed to be somewhat confusing when comparing it to the LaCoste icon. Today, we're honoring the retirement of a well noted figure in the Boatman Geller Collections , the preppy alligator. The gracious people at LaCoste have allowed us to run through of our existing inventory (rather than trash it), which gives our preppy alligator one more solid run at immortality. All preppy alligator fans, this will be your last opportunity to purchase any of our alligator collections with this image on it which can be found here:, so act fast while supplies last.

Now, after I became aware of this disheartening news, I spoke directly with Jane, the creator of the once infamous, now famous "preppy alligator" about her opinion. "I was looking to
express preppy... and having lived during the first alligator-is-synonymous-with-preppy phase
[see picture of Jane, right, from 1985], I was not following any trend by putting alligators on paper, but merely expressing my classic preppy style in a fun, Boatman Geller way," said Jane.

In closing, I'd like our readers to take a moment and remember the preppy alligator and all the good times he has brought us. Hopefully, our new alligator (to debut soon) will live up to these high standards.
