Harvard University announced last month that it has entered into a 10-year licensing agreement for a line of preppy clothing for the University set called Harvard Yard. The line includes the preppy plaids and tartans that you might see on Nantucket, Cape Cod or the Vineyard…the type of clothing worn by the affluent students attending the school in decades past. The collection launches in department stores nationwide in February. (Photos by Derrick Gomez, himself a prep school attendee and Ivy Leaguer)
