Overheard: On Tweed

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!
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'”
