You wouldn’t be a true Cornellian without some sort of clothing item bearing our alma mater’s insignia. And while too often these items are purchased as mere memorabilia, who says your Cornell gear can’t also be a fashion statement?

Certainly not the Cornell Store. They’ve got a mass of Cornell apparel for every style and taste, and it never goes out of fashion (who doesn’t wear a T-shirt?). You can even maintain the look after graduation with the Alumni line. Albeit, these items aren’t cheap, so be sure to check out your options at other stores like Bear Necessities in Collegetown or T-Shirt Express on The Commons.

Twill Hat

It’s comfy, it’s lightweight, has a stylish logo, and the neutral color goes with anything. The back features a slide buckle for easy adjustment. The Cornell Store boasts that this is a great addition to your Cornell hat collection.

Striped Polo

Everywhere you look someone’s wearing the classic polo (and far too often with the collar upturned). So why not make it a Cornell polo? The striped version makes it look a little more classy and less like a golf shirt.

Mesh Shorts

While I’m not claiming that mesh shorts are a fashion statement of any kind, sometime you just can’t beat comfort. Mesh seems to be the short of choice, so if you have to have them then you better make it Cornell red.

Long-sleeved T

A personal favorite, this long-sleeved T-shirt has a great version of the Cornell logo and print on one arm. It’s comfortable, classic, and you can’t help wearing it all the time (at least I do).


Cozy elastic waist polyester windpants are prefect for working out, hanging out, or heading out to class. This version is brand new to the Store, and a nice change from the same old sweatpants.

Striped — T

A fashionable alternative to the same old T-shirt, this — sleeve version is unique to the Cornell Collection. The red with white pinstripes prove that Cornell-ware can be fun too. Still not impressed with the design selection? If you have a creative mind and some spare cash, the Cornell Store also customizes apparel with pre-made artwork or your own. See for more details.
