If you tell me you think I look like an undergrad I’ll love you forever. I may be closer to thirty than freshman, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to show my school pride every once in awhile!
Actually I wasn’t looking for college gear at all when I stumbled across this Sooner shirt, but when I saw it I realized I didn’t have any clothes from my alma mater. I originally went to University of Tampa for undergrad, and just this past year I finished my masters with Oklahoma University. I have some UT swag, so how could I not have one piece of OU clothing to represent?!
I was shopping American Eagle of all places when I found this shirt and a bunch of other cute college apparel items. I knew that today’s American Eagle is much different that the one I shopped in high school, but I was not expecting their Tailgate line with vintage-inspired school gear.
What I really like about their items is that they’re so much more unique than the stuff that was in my college bookstore. They definitely have an old school vibe to them and they come in a lot of different styles and fits. Generally I feel like university gear is overpriced, but the sale prices are pretty good.
My baseball tee is sold out but there are a bunch of other similar options. I will say also that you should go with your regular size. I ordered the baseball tee in a medium because I thought the sizing would be a bit more junior, but I could have sized down (hence the side knot).
P.S. College apparel would be a great gift for any upcoming grads you know!
Now I’m not going to be filling my whole closet with college gear and stepping out in it every weekend, but every once in awhile when I do I’ll be styling it with a baseball cap and my loafer mules. And I would definitely recommend browsing American Eagle if you’re looking for some yourself!
