Ithaca is a leading style center for college clothing and starts style trends long before other cities "know what it's all about." Trends of ladies apparel started in Ithaca include jeans, weejun loafers, turtle neck sweaters, and pea jackets. Men's trends started here would be C.P.O. shirts, imported Shetland crew sweaters, 3 inch rep ties, and bold plaid sport jackets.
