I fucking hate those people that only ever wear the "University of Someshithole" hoodies. I've been to two uni's, and resisted the 'urge' to buy one both times.
And I'm on a sports team, and I've only ever worn the hoodie once, to the actual training session.

Face it, people are cunts.

Its more of actual sense of belonging, being associated to a group. I doubt anyone buys them for sheer fashion value.

I would buy a University of whatever hoodie but for loafing in, not to make any kind of fashion statement. Suppose only really works when you go somewhere with a decent reputation tho.

I'm flying back to my native Ireland tomorrow morning but I might as well be going by DeLorean, it's literally like stepping into 2004. Our chavs don't even wear any bad designer labels that you can moan about, its River Island or whatevers across the road from River Island.

Literally the whole country is on the Bebo site and people have joined "mullet" groups where the blokes all comment on each other's straightened and dyed mullets, which are still popular there. Anything indie or different is "gay" and all the guys wear baggy stonewashed denim with Kickers.

Got some nice Stussy hoodies and a few "slim-fitting" jeans since the last appearence(can't afford Dior on a student budget) so I can expect a few strange looks Puzzled

If you feel like a good laugh here's a mullet page Laughing out loud

You don't have to get Dior you know and unless you're flash why bother, fucking go and have a good time at Uni. Unless at the end you just want to show you have a nice wardrobe.

It's seems like they come and go every few years, fleece the Yates lads, charging twice as much as TOPMAN for pretty much the same thing, then disappear. When I was at school I used to wonder if you could just invent a "premium" high street brand like them simply by overcharging and make a mint
Jack Wills is more of a 'proper' label than Old Glory… for some reason their catalogues get posted to our house. It's basically identical to Abercrombie in every way, except more expensive.

Examples include £100 Hunter wellies, £150 raw selvage jeans in a shitty cut, £60 sweatpants and all the generic vintage style hoodies you'd expect to find in an A&F store.

BAPE style hoodies. It seems loads of people are wearing brightly coloured BAPE type hoodies, I've seen all the shitty shops selling them as you walk towards Tottenham Court Road. Although there are the odd Pharell wannabes wearing them, it mostly seems to be Emo kids I see with them on.

Print screen or PrtSc button on your keyboard. Then go to photoshop, or paint and click paste.

Print screen button on keyboard copies anything on your screen. Then goto paint, or PS and then goto edit and paste- pasting your captured image.
