Preppy Icon(s) of the Day

Today's Preppy Icon of the Day is a pair of icons. The Keno brothers, Leslie and Leigh, are known for their expertise in antiques.

You may have seen them on Antiques Roadshow or on the cover of their book Hidden Treasures: Searching for Masterpieces of American Furniture. Leigh opened his own antique dealership in New York City in 1986 and Leslie heads the American furniture and decorative arts division at Sotheby's. Both were awarded the National Humanities Medal in 2005. Leigh is a graduate of Hamilton College and Leslie is a graduate of Williams College.

Because of their love of antiques as well as their affinity for critter pattern and repp ties, as well as pastel oxford button downs, the Keno brothers are today's Preppy Icon(s) of the Day.

What a great post!
They also just hosted a History Channel special, "Behind the Scenes at the White House," and it was outstanding.
