What's with these people wearing shirts saying "Harvard" ?

If it is the university it would say Harvard University.

Pathetic.
The Harvard Shop history: "It has been 14 years since The Harvard Shop joined the family of businesses that make up Harvard Student Agencies, the largest student run company in the world. Since then, it has grown to become the largest among them and has established itself as the go-to destination for Harvard apparel and souvenirs both on campus and online..."

I laugh when I see women with LV purses -- how many of them have a stock portfolio? More like a credit card portfolio amirite??!?! :)
Joke's on you, a lot of women with LV purses do have stock portfolios.

you'd be surprised...i know a lot of women that purchase multiple real designer handbags, and are very well off financially.

Fakes maybe back in the day, but now purchasing a luxury bag is not that big of a deal.

What's so special about owning a LV? Majority purchase the cheapest one from the line up. There's lots of wealthy women that own Chanel's and birkins for the elite. Sounds like you are just mad jelly :p

Show offs are just looking for attention. If you ignore them or pretend you don't notice them, you have shot down their confidence. If you want to be a good positive person, then compliment them. You'll realize how far a compliment will get you.

It's owned by HSA - harvard students association. It's legit.

Brian Clay, then Vice President of HSA, approached Corcoran in 2001 with the idea of acquiring the shop for the company. Conveniently, Corcoran was on already on the board of HSA and immediately saw the natural fit.
If the glove don't fit you must acquit! #WINNING

I don't think that makes it legit. They seem to suggest that the people wearing the shirts are Harvard students. They use the same font for the word as the university. It's like Armani Exchange versus Armani Jeans,

Obviously it's going to vary person to person, but who cares? Seriously.

Welcome to 2017. Too bad you lived under a rock for so, so, so many years.

I'm going to play devil's advocate and ask you this, why does it matter what they have on their shirt?


Also as for the shirt, it's no different than people wearing torn or ripped clothing that they didn't rip, people wearing stuff that looks vintage or tour band tshirts that they most likely didn't go see.

All in all, they're not the problem here.
That's not a knife!
