Camber USA has cultivated a cult following among those who prioritise durability in their clothing choices, but the brand’s appeal goes beyond workwear. Sweaters have long been a staple of the Ivy League look. Camber style hoodies layered with collared shirts and slacks are always an effective way to achieve the preppy style. The Black Ivy League style is rooted in the aesthetic of black students and intellectuals. Sweaters have been a way for Black Ivy students to showcase their academic affiliations, as well as their belonging to a community that celebrated Black achievement and excellence.

Originally, hoodies came from gym wear but soon became a symbol of youth rebellion and Hip-Hop culture. The incorporation of hoodies into the Ivy League style reflects the increasingly popular trend of incorporating casual, streetwear elements into preppy aesthetics. The inclusion of sweaters and hoodies in Black Ivy fashion is more than a stylistic choice; it’s a reflection of 1960s African American adaption to changing social and cultural landscapes.
