Can someone tell me what the name of this type of college sweater is? Someone?! Anyone?!
It was common during the 1920s and 1930s. The pictures above are from Good News (1947) which is based on a musical from the late 1920s and the setting is 1927. I researched sweatshirts and they were sports/collegiate wear that came about in the 1920s. I couldn't find anything on these.
What's unique about these sweatshirts is that they have all sorts of writing and drawings on them. Notes, signatures, drawings, fun quips, colloquialisms and my favorite 1920s slang!
I would really like to do some research on this particular clothing fad but I need some direction to go on as I'm coming up blank.
