    My Granny just bought me University of Oxford tea towels from our local market. I'm starting to think that if she has her way, by the time I get to university everything I own will have an Oxford stamp on it :lolwut:
    I want one! I want one! :stomp:

    There are a lot of guys at my school running around wearing an Oxford university jumper and don't have anything to do with the university what so ever, and I don't owe one, I feel pathetic :dry:

    I don't remember ever seeing an Oxford student wearing one of those. College fleeces ftw!

    Oooh yes, and College scarves.

    That's kinda lame! Why would you get one if you don't go there?
    I do sort of want a college scarf though, it seems so Harry Potterish

    When my Japanese friend was visiting we both went to Oxford and bought hoodies with the OXFORD on the front as a sort of friendship thing... I have to say I would never wear it at Oxford (College > University) but it is very comfy and snuggling for lazing around the house in.. Also, I wore it so much in Iceland that it's starting to come apart

    Best of luck with those There's a summer camp in Italy somewhere but I think they speak English there - otherwise I wouldn't have been able to consider it hehe. And indeed, I always thought woofing sounded quite cool.

    Loads of the year 10s and 11s at our school seem, at the weekends, to live in denim skirts, tights, uggs and an Oxford or Cambridge hoody. It's become a standing joke!!

    And totally agree about the Harry-Potter-ish-ness of the college scarves :ninja:

    It's a total joke I'm not from the UK so people seem to wear one around here just to show "hey I've been there as a tourist and it's a beautiful place" or what ever don't really get it. Once I was sitting in the hallway with some other people and one of them asked me what my plans are for next year, and I just randomly pulled a guy over, pointed at his sweater and said: I'll be going there! people looked at me as if I had gone insane :cool:

    I don't get the whole Oxford hoodie thing.

    I would feel awkward wearing it if I wasn't going to study there, then again, I would probably feel more awkward wearing it if I was going to Oxford, comes across as a bit arrogant D:

    Does anybody know where we can buy these scarves? I'm guessing probably through individual colleges...

    Found one here, but aren't the genuine scarves supposed to have no crest?

    It might be that you can buy cheaper ones through college, I don't know.

    It's along the lines of how people say the 'Oxford' hoodies are for tourists only (real students wear college hoodies). But I have Oxbridge friends with crested hoodies.

    The crested ones are fine (and nice) if you mean the dark blue ones with the crest. The ones with 'Oxford university' emblazoned all over the chest are worn almost exclusively by tourists.

    I'm definitely getting one if I end up going to Oxford! Where do you buy them?

    On the requirements it says it would like people to be over 20, but it sounds pretty flexible about it. Hope it helps
