One of our favorite things about fall and winter is that we get to layer up, and, most importantly, bring out our sweaters. Since the days of old Ivy, sweaters have served as more than just an extra layer of warmth, showing everyone else what college and university your alma mater was, as well as any athletic affiliations (read about Ed Heald, Dartmouth '68, whose 1968 sweater graced the pages of Take Ivy twice, here)
Enter Hillflint, started by several college friends from Dartmouth and Princeton who were tired of the typical, uninspiring apparel options often found in today's university stores. They got their start at Dartmouth College by designing and making luxury class numeral sweaters for our classmates and have since expanded to other New England colleges.
Since the launch, Hilflint has sought to perfect the collegiate sweater and they have recently started a Kickstarter campaign to help them bring the Mark One sweater idea to life. The Mark One sweater is designed to be thicker, softer and better fitting than sweaters currently on the market. They just need our help to make it happen.
