Those are ugly. If you're going to spend $$$ on a bag, go designer (or so says my Coach-loving self :)).

Hey bonnieblue, does your username perhaps refer to this?

Agreed about Wofford. Furman is frat too.

And whoever brought up frat vs. bro, what the hell are you talking about?



Tebow wears jorts.

I'm a northern girl, and I had to google Vera Bradley. I am sooo not cut out for a southern school, those bags are effin hideous.


It's not a requirement to live in the south, promise ;) Speaking from nearly 23 years of experience... Most girls just use them as luggage. It's kind of um "dorky" to carry as a purse, for lack of a better word.

Longchamp bags are WAY more popular. HATE THEM. I can think of a better way to spend $125 and it isn't on 2 leather handles attached to a nylon sack.


Or you could just not bother with any of them. :D I have an Astro Boy purse, though, so I'm probably not the best judge of things if you're actually worried about that.

I'll be honest, I dress pretty southern frat (no popped collars or ed hardy, also I dont wear croakies.) I am thinking about attending Michigan since its the best school I got into so far. After reading this thread I'm thinking people are probably going to give me shit there for the way I dress. Am I right?

EDIT: I'm from UGA I can't help it. BTW UGA is uber-frat incase you were wondering.

False. There are so many people at michigan, and a decent number (aka all of my guy friends) dressed that way. No one got made fun of.

I dunno, you might catch some shit. I am not super frat but I went out in Ann Arbor last week and I was wearing a polo and khakis and caught a few looks and comments (and I'm from MI). Maybe it was our (poor) choice of bars, but I agree about the large number of people and diversity.

On the preppy side, I'd probably throw Villanova on there. Based solely on the open house I went to.

I go to FSU law and I can assure you it is quite fratty. We have socials almost every week that have themes just like fraternity/sorority themes. We just had our annual woodser this past weekend. Style of dress is one thing, sure, but fratty activity is actually living the lifestyle.

Ole Miss
Wake Forest
South Carolina


Missing one of the biggest: Vanderbilt. Place is absolutely frat-tastic. Oxfords, ties, and pastel pants for football games, tailgates on the frat house lawns, and literally ~2/3 of the female population is in a sorority.

More like button downs, ties, and shorts. Nothing looks more ridiculous than a grown man with a tie and shorts.

Vandy kids kind of reminds me of ACC schools - UVA, Duke, Wake - great law schools, but not really fratty like most of the SEC.

It takes both? Someone can party all they want, but if he throws on an Affliction tshirt, one should probably avoid him like swine flu.

Indeed. Outside the T14, I was also thinking some of the big Southern state schools (UGA, Bama, Texas, perhaps UF) and maybe some of the private schools (Wake, Tulane, W&L, maybe even Emory?), but I'm not as familiar with those.


UGA: most definitely

Tulane/ Emory: most definitely not

He doesn't wear jorts, but he does wear orange and blue crocs all the time. Love the kid, but we always get a laugh when we see him on his scooter wearing one blue and one orange croc.

(Crocs are the slide-on rubber shoes for those that don't know.)

HAHA I'm glad people can't stand Vera Bradley..I live 10 minutes away from their headquarters......I'm a dude and even I can't stand the hideousness that is vera bradley. Same prints just different colors. I can't believe girls buy that crap.

We could make a whole thread about weird stuff girls buy. Fashion is fashion I guess.

Or worse: "I need so bad for these other fratties to think I have money that I will buy this awfully hideous, brightly and chaotically patterned, awful bag so everyone notices me."

Is Vandy really that fratty? It is a top choice for me but I dont know if I can stand 3 more years on a majority greek campus.
