This football season there are a slew of options for game day apparel, from DIY shirts to classic jerseys. And now, Valley‘s here to tell you there’s more. Read on to learn how to be trendy on game day while still showing your PSU pride.
Tailgate Clothing Co. was created by Todd Snyder in 1997. The line includes collegiate apparel with a vintage edge, giving the clothes that trendy, old time university feel.
“When we create the collections, we’re always trying to make these classics new again,” says Snyder.
Tailgate offers the trendiest game day and everyday looks, perfect for every college campus. American Eagle Outfitters has recently made an $11 million deal with Snyder to acquire his line.
From the Alabama Crimson Tide to the Wisconsin Badgers, Tailgate Clothing Co. has apparel for 20 different colleges up on American Eagle’s website. And of course, Penn State is one of them.
The Penn State line is complete with shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants adorned with the iconic Nittany Lion, Penn State crest and more. Some pieces are vintage and others offer a more modern look, so whatever your style, there’s an option for you. Tailgate doesn’t just save all the fun for girls. Each school has men’s apparel, so you boys can have the perfect game day look, too!
Tailgate has a separate tab on the American Eagle Outfitters website and you can choose your school from the list of colleges (WE ARE… under the Penn State section). Check out some of Valley‘s favorites here, and with free shipping over $50, we can’t think of any reason not to shop ’til you drop!
Roll up to a Penn State tailgate in your Tailgate apparel paired with your favorite pair of ripped jeans or denim skirt and some Converse or Adidas, for the hottest look at the game. But the most important part is showing your loyalty to dear Old State and feeling like a part of the best student body in the nation.
“Tailgate is all about feeling like you’re ready to join the party,” says Snyder. “That’s why it’s so important for us to do the research, dig through the archives and discover amazing clothes that tell amazing stories about people and places.”
Tailgate has such a wide variety of fashionable school apparel. So, go and find your favorite look for game day, and keep in mind, school pride is a trend hot on campus all year round!
