Fashion: Back to school

Celebrate the spirit of preppiness with this nostalgic reissue from clothing brand Gant's vast archive: the Yale shirt dates back to the 1960s in design, when an Oxford-cloth button-down was the only thing to see and be seen in on campus. According to lore, the wearer would cut off the shirt's locker-loop (used for hanging it up) when he was spoken for, and sew it back on again when he ended up back on the market. Who knew? £75, gantuk.com
