Why do people wear shirts/hats for colleges they don't go to?

I see this all the time. People at my high school used to walk around with college shirts and my 12 year old niece just bought a Harvard sweater. I don't get why

  • I got shirts from every college I visited after applying and I also have shirts my brother and cousins got me from their colleges. That's probably why many of them are wearing those shirts too!

  • Because they finds the clothing comfortable and likes the color of it. I do sometime wear sweaters although I've never been at the place before. I've not been in America, but wears a sweater with American places on or a band's logo although I've never heard their music before.

  • I just ordered a Stanford sweater and I go to Oklahoma University. I wouldn't wear it around campus or anything, but my thinking was "hey this would look good with this and would show that I like Stanford and that I am cool and cultured." It's the same with like a sports jersey from a city you're not from. You like the team. You support it. But you're just you. You're out of the way like "what up I'll rep it"

  • Why not? It's just a piece of clothing. If other people think you go to Harvard because you wear a Harvard top, then that's better for you lol.
