Frat Shirts: My Guilty Pleasure
If you grew up in the South, you’re no stranger to frat shirts. Especially if you’re in college or graduated within the past 3 years. Maybe I’m trying to relive my glory years – or more like I just wish I was 20 years old again. What I would give to be back in my house in Athens, going to class and taking “tennis” as my P.E. class. In actuality, I really really loved going to class.
But one of my favorite parts of being in college was my dress code. No, I wasn’t one of those people who wore XXL t-shirts and Nike shorts with cowboy boots every single day but I might have worn a combination of those items once or twice. T-shirts are kind of my thing… and who says grown-ups (and by grown-up I mean 24, but still looks 18) shouldn’t be allowed to wear them? Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite tee companies:
Peach State Pride
I am obsessed with Peach State Pride. I love the little peach symbol and of course I have the car decal! It probably helps we share the same symbol so we really are kindred spirits in a blog to company type of way. Also, I desperately need this Georgia tank – Go Dawgs. (I even wrote a post about them in 2011! That’s everlasting love.)
Vineyard Vines was an acquired taste for me, to be honest. Of course I really love the whale – I mean, how cute is that? But no offense to anyone who wears it, I’m not a fan of their Women’s clothing. The Men’s line however? Love it. The t-shirts are incredibly soft and I love the vibrant pastel colors. Also a huge fan of the Shep Shirt and the button downs.
The Frat Collection
Remember when I said Vineyard Vines was comfortable? Well the Frat Collection is even better. I still wear my long sleeve religiously and the best part is it’s still oversized and hasn’t shrunk at all – score! The best part is, they’re fully customizable so you choose your shirt color and your pocket pattern. Just go to their site and play around for a few hours – but it’ll make your decision harder I promise.
What other tee companies am I missing? Send me your favorites!
I’m still in college and I’m wearing my frat shirt right now! Reppin’ DG baby!
LOVE that you LOVE frat shirts! Only an SEC girl would appreciate an oversized tee!
I’m a sucker for t-shirts too. Nothing beats the comfort of a well loved old tee!
Love the Vineyard Vines looks!!
I’m a Michigan girl but live in frat tees, as well as my Tyler’s t-shirts from Texas. I have a Frat Collection long-sleeved shirt and it’s great!

We just got Vineyard Vines shirts in our area- cannot wait to try them. Love that Georgia tank. I’m having a really hard time finding a cute UGA shirt in plus-size.
luxley and bernard shirts are some of my favorites!
I live in my college t-shirts when I get home from work or running errands on the weekend. Nothing beats the really worn in ones.
