#ThrowbackThursday: Reunions Style, Circa 1990

05161990As Reunions veterans know, a little customization can make one stand out from the crowd. PAW’s Reunions preview in 1990 featured Nuala O’Connor ’89, then the magazine’s assistant editor, in a beer jacket that included hand-drawn Tigerlilies, a Cloister Inn patch, Reunions buttons, and more. (The Tiger peeking over her shoulder was part of the class-wide design.)

Those ’89 beer jackets may be relegated to the back of the closet now that the class has celebrated its 25th reunion and unveiled its class blazer — a classic black jacket with orange piping and an ’89 shield patch. But some classmates still found a way to differentiate themselves in the P-rade, turning their blazers inside out to showcase a boldly striped lining.
