We’ve featured Hillflint here at Ivy Style before, and yesterday the rising start-up got some far bigger publicity: a post at Town & Country entitled “The brand that’s making heritage collegiate gear cool again.”
Goes the story:
“We founded Hillflint three years ago, just after we graduated college, because we wanted to make something for our friends that would outlive all those souvenir tee-shirts,” the brands founders write on its website. “Just like our college years had become an indelible part of our identity, we wanted something that would be with us through all the years ahead—and maybe one day in the closet of a grandchild.”
The sweaters, offered in both merino wool and cotton, come in old school styles like vintage crewnecks, heritage v-necks, and shawl cardigans. They all look like they are straight out of the pages of T.Hayashida’s 1965 cult-classic book Take Ivy.
Kudos to Hillflint for bringing something back that was nearly forgotten. Maybe kids will realize pajama bottoms and flip-flops don’t exactly match their cool new sweaters. — CC
