Students spend a significant part of their time in college figuring out who they are and what makes them unique. For a majority of Aggies, being unique means wearing Comfort Colors. From
Gig ‘Em Howdy Week to Ring Day, Comfort Colors t-shirts have always been there to swaddle Aggies in their soft embrace. It is only appropriate then, that these important cultural garments are finally available to accompany students in the final moments of their college careers.
According to an MSC Barnes & Noble representative, graduation caps and gowns will now be available in Comfort Colors maroon. “We know that behind each student is a network of support, and we want to give students the opportunity to recognize all that have helped them,” said Jackie Steinem. “Just as family and friends support students emotionally and mentally, so too does Comfort Colors on a social and fashionable level.”
Student reactions to this news have been overwhelmingly positive. “Honestly, I cannot express how meaningful this is to me,” said Davis Gonzalez, senior Accounting major. “The distinct washed out tones of these shirts allow me to express myself in ways the intricate complexities of the English language cannot accommodate. Now I get to walk the stage feeling like the best version of myself.”
The Comfort Colors graduation regalia will be available for purchase to all students. Special features on the gown include custom embroidery of all the organizations the student is involved in and all the date parties they have attended. All gowns will include frockets for obvious utility. However, business majors and students in sororities and fraternities will be given special gold cords and limited edition Patagonia stoles to honor their exceptional commitment to the Comfort Colors brand.
“I am thrilled about the Comfort Colors gowns,” said Jane Ataulfo, senior Supply Chain Management major. “No one will be able to see the shorts I am wearing underneath the gown, just like when I wear my normal Comfort Color shirts.”
