How To Dress For “THE GAME” : YALE vs. HARVARD Is Happening Tomorrow

Ahhhh, it’s that time again in the north east.  The weekend before Thanksgiving is a holiday in it’s own right in either New Haven. CT or Boston, MA. You see, the Cambridge Crimson and Old Blue & White will again meet in the oldest and most storied rivalry in American sport lore, and the insanity will ensue. It’s been a thing since programs looked like World War 1 recruitment posters. See: Below. It’s the College Game Of The Week, and a few years back, on ESPN’s College Gameday Show, this now famous sign Sharpie-ed it’s way into history on live TV. Yale pranked Harvard back in 04 with the now classic “Faux Pep Squad” prank as seen in the below video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4kai4FL0MQ Nothing is uphill from there at all, with both sides continuously stooping to epic new lows to bully and one up, rather intelligently, the other school. This is Red…

Dj Five Is The Real Vegas Golden Knight. With Turntables & Rad T Shirts.

When DJ Five isn’t spinning some of the biggest celeb driven venues in Las Vegas, you can find him at the gym early in the morning or hanging out with his nephew and his parents. “This is the real Vegas- that whole Sin City shit is for tourist”. Is it a city where you can find a party at any time of day, but life can also be pretty chill and consistent. And a market on the rise in ways Bugsy Seigle couldn’t image. There is a growing indie music scene, backpack rap and skate board community, and avant garde mod art. There are cool things happening now that don’t involve cliches like the Joe Peschi in a little tux, the Bunny Ranch, circus themed dinner theater, Kris Angle, or blowing the 401 K at a penny slot. DJ  Five, hailing originally from LA, has been dj-ing since 15, and…

September #Setlist : The New Ivy League Look : Yale

The are 8 storied, historical educational institutions that make up the northeast’s “Ivy League”. Steeped in history, mystery, and, well, of course, ivy, these universities have given us not only the greatest minds from the most powerful families, but arguably the coolest fashion, in Americana. With apologies to Wanderset’s founder, the homie Greg Selkoe (who once stalked the streets of Cambridge in his crimson Harvard gear) and John F. Kennedy (who did the same but to lesser effect and social impact) I’m leading off the September Setlist “Ivy League Look” with Harvard’s most hated rival, the blue and white “Illuminati Hogwarts”, Yale. Blame it on me being from New Haven. Plus dark blue and white look super sharp together. Here’s the modern take on the Ivy traditionalism, with some really dope selections from Comme des Garcons, Publish, Android Homme, David Kind and Eton. Shop the look by clicking the image,…

#Setlist Campus Chill : 5 Must Have Sweatshirts

There are more or less two streams of college attire. Your traditional “Ivy League” stereotype is what comes to mind for some, with images of young men at Yale and Harvard, in khaki pants and deep shades of rich navy and maroon tops, button downs from Gant, and heavily stitched varsity letters. Then there’s what you actually see in dorms and halls all across the country. The Ivy’s love their idealistic postcard portrayal, but real life is alot more functional, youth driven, trend aware and chill. Hoodies will never go out of style on campus. Especially ones with the college’s name on the front in bold white varsity letters. But this season, the cult of the cool long sleeve sweatshirt is in full effect. We selected 5 “Must Have Sweatshirts” for campus life in this edition of #SetList that are exactly what you need to look like you not only know…

Trap Goth Is A Thing Now. Here’s The Look.

There’s an old sociology theory that state’s “Subcultures create subcultures.” It goes on to say that progressive movements have, by nature, many more tributaries than their mainstream counterparts, and therefore the progressive progress faster. Nothing exemplifies this more than Goth. If you ask a “Goth” what it means to be Goth, you’ll get a wide array of answers. It’s a lifestyle, a fashion sense, a mental state, all of the above, or something far more specific. The answers run the gamut. And Goth, maybe even more so than other subcultures, has a great many subcultures and sets within itself. There’s the classic Victorian Goth, which is best embodied by the wardrobe in most Tim Burton films. In the 90’s Goth was synonymous with anti-culture heroes like Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor, and, to a lesser extent any band that opened for Manson, Nine Inch Nails, or was nu-metal industrial. More recently,…

The 20 Year Cycle Of Fashion + Culture.

Wanderset Breaks Down Why 2017 Feels Alot Like 92-97, And Explores The Theory That Everything Repeats Itself On A 20-25 Year Grid.  When I was 17 I used to skip class in New Haven, CT and go hang on the green or at pubs in the Arts District a ton. I used to have conversations with bums, doctors, gangsters and Yale students alike. It expanded me. To be honest, my class cutting adventures are probably the reason I do anything I do now. It was a period of huge growth. Ironically, the hobos would say the most expansive things. There was this one cat, who they called “Money” (the proverbial they stay giving out ironic names, I swear) who told me this theory about how culture in general was on a 20-25 year cycle. Music and fashion all took two decades to circle. Nothing proves Money was actually money on…
