In 1900 the properly dressed Carolina student ordered his clothes from a tailor and wore shirts with stiff collars. During the ensuing hundred years campus dress became increasingly less formal, and by the year 2000 classrooms were filled with students in T-shirts and flip-flops. This exhibition explores the stylistic shifts that took us from collared to casual, and what these changes—big and small, gradual and sudden — reveal about twentieth-century student life at Carolina.
