What if you’ve never gone to university? No problem. You don’t need a university degree to figure out what are the essentials of university clothing. A primer on the university clothing staples may be in order. Those who have gone to university but may not be able to remember what they wore are welcome to read:
Hoodies are basically sweaters with a hood. They have large pockets on the front and have a drawstring to adjust the hood opening. These are basic clothing of jocks and hip hop rappers. Hoodies may have drawn some criticism because of its association to chavs or rowdy teenagers. The government clamped down on hoodies because it was associated with shoplifting and other criminal behaviours. Of course, a lot of people joined the “Save the Hoodie” campaign. Because of this, the hoodie became a strong statement for individuality and freedom in the UK.
The history of the tee shirt makes the same statement as the hoodie. A tee shirt is a piece of clothing that is worn over the head without any buttons or a collar. In the early 19th century, tee shirts came from the “union suit” underwear. The union suit underwear is a one-piece full body underwear. However, stevedores and miners started cutting the union suit into two, forming an upper and lower portion. Because tee shirts are comfortable and easily cleaned, they became standard clothing of the working class and young boys. Mothers love the fact that they can easily wash tee shirts, so they loved having their sons wear this lightweight clothing during the hot summer months.
Today, tee shirts are now symbols of self-expression. They are worn by men and women, young boys and girls, and teenagers. Ironic or humorous statements are often emblazoned on tee shirts to make for cool no-nonsense fashion statement. This makes the tee shirt a standard in university clothing.
Sweatshirts are pullovers made of thick cotton. They are usually worn on top of tee shirts or a blouse. Sweatshirts do not have hoods. They are easily maintained by ordinary washings and are great alternatives to the tee shirt especially on cooler months. For guys, pairing the sweatshirt with sweatpants is the ultimate in comfort and yet is cool enough to wear to a party, the pub, or the gym.
The best thing about university clothing is that you can wear it anywhere. Want to hit the gym or go to a party? You’ll still be hip in them, not to mention so comfortable that you can party all night without feeling encumbered. University clothing is all about freedom and now everyone can wear it, young or old.
