The best thing about college?


Game day. School colors. Tailgating.

Bringing back the halcyon days: Hillflint, maker of collegiate-themed garb for the discerning alumnus.

This is your homecoming wardrobe, graduated.

Started by two Ivy Leaguers, Hillflint offers an array of crew– and v-neck sweaters repping 80 different universities, all with various class, heritage and letter designs.

They’re a decided upgrade on the screen-print hoodie.

Knit-in graphics, to start. Plus, each garment is crafted from either a super-soft cotton blend or extra-fine 19-micron Australian merino wool, a more breathable fabric that’ll wick body moisture away, as well as keep you odor-free and toasty warm.

Perfect for tailgating.


For those claiming no school affiliation, Hillflint also offers a line of classy, non-denominational cardigans and scarves.

In case your school isn’t one of the 80 offered, the company also features a custom program, where they’ll knit the graphic of your choice onto a crew, V or boatneck sweater.

But that’ll take a bit more time — about 8-10 weeks.

And being waitlisted is never fun.
