Everyone associates different things with college, be it spending arduous hours in The Library until your head spins, or actually studying instead of wasting your parents' money in ironically named bars. Using undergrad as inspiration for their latest collection, Rag & Bone. The brand known for melding American craftsmanship with traditional British tailoring to create understated casual wear you can wear every day has launched a new theme loosely inspired by those four years where you simply wore the same clothes every day. Arriving at By George daily, the freshness includes uppers like
Belushi's sweet COLLEGE shirt subdued, effortlessly formal light blue/red/black oxfords, ultra-thin Fall-in-the-quad merino wool striped sweaters, and a 100% cotton henley so white it's nearly see-through, which didn't stop Stevie Nicks from spending one last worthless evening having sex with it. Since despite the relentless heat there'll (probably) once again come a day when you'll wear a jacket, they've got fetchingly simple outerwear like the rugged tan M41 Field contrasted by suede elbow patches, the cotton/elastic, tee-or-dress-shirt-friendly Pathfinder Blazer in charcoal, and a blue nylon hooded number for stylishly tackling rainy conditions, because last time you carried an "Umbrella" was on an iPod Nano. To celebrate the new, By George will welcome the line's creators to the store next week, when they'll also be pouring gratis brew from Austin Beerworks, coincidentally the major pursued by the majority of students at The Library.
