• About

    In creating his style blog Unabashedly Prep just over four years ago, fashion photographer F.E. Castleberry has unwittingly become a pundit of the preppy aesthetic. Splitting a majority of his time along the east coast, he has curiously been assimilated by the subculture he initially set out to document. His commercial clients include Ralph Lauren, J.McLaughlin, Club Monaco, and Quadrille among others; while being published in GQ, Women’s Wear Daily, The Rake, Town & Country, and in the new coffee table book Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style.

    F.E. currently resides in Brooklyn where he offices out of his Park Slope apartment, wrestles his two sons, and sinks money into an ‘87 Bimmer.

    Unabashedly Prep is a personal blog published by me, F.E. Castleberry. Every piece of editorial content is chosen for its relevance, news value, or is an honest endorsement by me. Yes, people send me things sometimes. If I like it, I might tell you all about it. Even though I receive compensation for certain posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The point of view expressed on Unabashedly Prep is solely my own.
