Students across campus dust off signature green waxed jackets as first gust of chilly air sweeps through

“Yes!” Jim Fresdeeno yelled to himself as the season’s initial cool air gently tossed his well-combed coif, realizing that the month-and-a-half window to wear the green jacket was upon him. The jacket, which features no insulation or tailoring, of course carries with it a price tag that could buy several versions of a less completely ridiculous jacket. According to Fresdeeno, though, the hefty investment is absolutely worthwhile: “it’s more the idea of the jacket than the jacket itself.” Fresdeeno had not been punched in the face at the time of this writing. –Emerson Scheinuk & Ford Carson
