Presenting a match made in sartorial heaven: Alex P. Keaton and Tory Burch. The American designer, famed for classically preppy pieces with punchy colors and exciting prints, has teamed up with the "Family Ties" frontman (and television prepster), Michael J. Fox, for Parkinson's Awareness Month.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation funds research programs that aim to defeat the neurological disease, which Fox suffers from. For April, Tory Burch has joined the cause in a way we can all get behind: shopping.

20% of profits sold from select orange designs benefit the Foundation's efforts. But hardened "Preppy Handbook" enthusiasts, take heart: these classic styles will endure long after May flowers have bloomed.
