Hoodies and track jackets are great when casual comfort is appropriatee.g., campus tours or hanging out with teammates.
Not all fabrics are dryer-friendly. Check the care instructions before you wash and toss to keep your gear in good condition.
Cords are versatile. Wear them with a polo for a leisure look, or with a button down and blazer for a dressier style.
A polo is an easy way to achieve a less formal but still polished appearance.
