My long search of the LIFE magazine files also dug up these interesting photogaphs of an earlier college generation, some being outfitted for new wardrobe in local stores, others just general colleg life.
The average date seems to be 1954 and the square format of most of them suggest the Rolleiflex as the camera used, also dating it more to the 1950s than 60s. The giveaway though must be the guy trying on the hat…
(NB thanks to The Look for letting me know it was J Press Newhaven Store – the problem with searching only the images is they are not archived in context!)
