A simple stroll into your campus bookstore has the typical finds of books, scantrons, and hoodies.  Dig deep and past the hoodies, sweatshirts, and unisex t-shirts is a fresh, fashionable, Made in the USA collegiate line, School House.

Coined ‘the fresh face of collegiate fashion,’ School House started as the brainstorm of Duke student Rachel Weeks and her frustration in the lack of finding university branded oxford shirts and cardigans in the thick of the manufactured sweatshirts.

A quality-rich, vintage-inspired line of sweaters, cardigans, and oxfords line the School House shop front in North Carolina, several books stores, and online representing 33 universities.

SH Lettermen Sweaters for Harvard Yale $55.00

“The epitome of classic collegiate style. Our crew neck silhouette is rendered in 100% cotton, and may as well be personally signed by its proud craftsmen here in North Carolina. This is the college sweater you’ll hand down to your daughter one day. Until then, it’s all yours.”

SH Funnel Fleece Duquesne $39.00

“We kept the cozy fleece from your most well-worn college hoodie, and made something perfectly new.. meet our Funnel Fleece. A lofty, ultra-long neck can be worn down like a built-in infinity scarf, or pulled over the head for a chic (not to mention warm) look. With its tunic style length and shirt tail hem, it’s perfect with skinny jeans and leggings. Kangaroo pockets add just the right amount of function.”

School House’s dedication to the quality of its line, the love it has for classic, vintage fashion, and its ‘Made in America’ entrepreneurial spirit is more the reason we are thrilled and excited to announce our partnership with this amazing brand.
