Back to School Cool

If you have or know a kid headed off to college this fall, outfit them from head to toe in the gear of their chosen alma mater at Steve & Barry's University Sportswear, a national chain with its local outpost at the oddly fascinating Northwest Plaza. (I say "oddly fascinating" because its mix of stores is unfathomable to me, and apparently getting weirder this fall, with the addition of "Seniortown" and "Hip Hop Café"...)

Anyhoo, here's the deal: Steve & Barry's has licensed logowear like tees (short- and long-sleeved), athletic shorts, sweats and more from pretty much any college or university you can think of. Well, except Columbia University. Did I mention that? Don't go there if you are looking for gear from Columbia University. Their book tells them it's a school they carry, but the manager had to break the bad news that Columbia gear won't be in 'til late fall...and then it will probably just be one t-shirt.

In addition to all that jazz, they carry jeans, khakis, lots of what I would consider hoochie mama wear (but I'm probably just jealous 'cause I'd never wear it), and here's the kicker: right now, every single thing in the store is $5.98 or less.
