Overheard: On Tweed

Written by

Dunno whatchu talkin about Professor, Wikimedia says slim-fit tweed jackets have gained in popularity since early 2008.

Overheard at Barnard:

Girl 1: He’s very stoic.
Girl 2: I like that in a professor.
Girl 1: And he wears a lot of tweed.
Girl 2: Oooh, I really like that in a professor!

Us too!

Meanwhile, at the opposite end of the tweed loving spectrum, a professor overheard in a CC class on his wardrobe at conferences:

“I wear blue and black. That is my color palette. It’s an act of resistance…a refusal of the tweed. When I get tenure, I’ll write a book about the Classicist world and I’ll call it… ‘Sexless Conference'”
