Hail Varsity Staff Gift Picks
Subscription to Hail Varsity magazine: I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't remind you about our own products, right? The first thing to check off any shopping list is a subscription to Hail Varsity magazine. You can pick up a one-year subscription for just $29.95, which includes our annual football yearbook. You won't be disappointed.
Subscription to HailVarsity.com: The best way to stay up to date with your Nebraska news is with a subscription to HailVarsity.com. A subscription gives you access to all of our premium content, including in-depth analysis, recruiting content and our premium forums. This is a must for the die-hard Husker fan!
Midnight Mascot Blackshirts T-Shirt: I'm a sucker for Blackshirt gear and hoodies. I guarantee this will be in my closet in the near future. The design is also available as short sleeve and long sleeve t-shirts.
Original Retro Brand Collegiate Pique Polo: Simple and classic is always my goal and this looks like a polo you could’ve purchased from the gift shop at the Cornhusker back when Nebraska still ran the option. That’s a very good thing.
Top of the World District Unstructured Hat: Reminds me of the Lakers’ old MPLS uniforms. Why abbreviate? Why not? (And space.) The applique letters give this a timeless appeal.
Basic Arch Long Sleeve T-Shirt: There’s no better way to let people know where you’re from and what you're about than the classic arch shirt (or hoodie or sweatshirt). A well-known streetwear designer incorporated this design into his fall collection a few years back and sold them for hundreds of dollars. You can get the same look for a lot less.
Nebraska Cornhuskers adidas Sideline Sweatshirt: It’ll keep you warm, it’s simple in design and you can layer it. What more could you need?
Nebraska Cornhuskers Original Retro Brand Logo T-Shirt: Another simple look. It’s an old-school logo on a super soft shirt that I haven’t seen around town before and that makes it a win in my book.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Legacy Reversible Vest: I would wear this every single day. It’s a nice retro look. You’d be clashing styles a little bit with new-school and old-school but you could probably layer this over that black sweatshirt and get away with it.
Nebraska Cornhuskers adidas 2017 Sideline Pigskin Ultimate T-Shirt – Scarlet: I prefer short-sleeved T-shirts and the football N logo is pretty cool.
Nebraska Cornhuskers adidas Premier Shorts – Scarlet: My personal style is all about comfort, and any time the temperature is above 55 or so degrees you can usually find me in a pair of basketball shorts and a T-shirt. This pair looks sharp.
Colosseum Setter Quarter Zip: A nice but casual quarter zip that can keep you warm in the fall. Nice enough for a casual Friday as well.
Full Zip Puffer Jacket: Who doesn’t love a nice bubble coat? I may go and order this one right now. Our friends at Fanatics say these are going fast.
City Chic Quilted Vest: Vests are definitely in right now. They keep you warm, while keeping your outfit stylish.
Oversized T-Shirt: Who doesn’t love a big, comfortable, classic t-shirt?
Engraved Cuff Bracelet: I personally am a fan of accessories, so this is a perfect addition to add a little something extra to your next outfit.
Safari bucket hat: I’m told bucket hats are popular; I really like them, but Barb says they’re not a good fit for me. Regardless, I might have to get one.
Bugeaters T-shirt: Gotta have Bugeaters gear, though when they were the Bugeaters, they didn’t look like the guy pictured.
Grey Adidas hoodie: Pretty sleek looking, if you ask me.
Two-tone long sleeve: Good lounge shirt or game day shirt when it's cool but not cold out.
Red and Grey Quarter Zip: This is a little different, maybe a bit too tOSU looking, but a strong look. I’m a big zip/pullover fan.
Framed Memorial Stadium Blueprint: I’m always a sucker for graphical images, and this Memorial Stadium blueprint fits the bill.
Scarlet Pullover Hoodie: There’s nothing better than a nice hoodie, and this vintage-styled one would be at the top of my wish list.
