    swap you or swap with you

    I thought the preposition 'with' is necessary in the sentence below. Is 'with' necessary?

    - I will swap (with) you my blue dress for your vintage hat.


    Thank you!

    Re: swap you or swap with you

    Does this mean that both are correct?

    I will swap with you my blue dress for your vintage hat.

    Re: swap you or swap with you

    It's more natural without "with".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
