Winter is upon us and the classiest way to stay warm is by wearing the official 'H' sweater. The simple collegiate design is timeless. In fact, the genesis of the 'H' sweater trend occurred during the 1880s when the Harvard crew team made a plain white sweater with a crimson 'H' their official uniform. Shortly there after, the Harvard Athletic Council provided letter-sweaters for all of the varsity sports teams. Today, you don't have to be an athlete at Harvard to don the 'H' and show off your Harvard pride. Every year The Harvard Shop sells a limited number of hand-knitted, 100% wool sweaters in both cream and crimson — HAND-KNITTED! The item becomes available at our Mt. Auburn location tomorrow, November 5th, and online on Friday, November 7th. Take a look at this year's H sweater models!
