Krass and Co. Just Might Make Your Favorite Shorts

Krass and Co. Just Might Make Your Favorite Shorts

Athletic shorts with fratty style. What more could you ask for?

Greek life is a huge part of the culture at UVA, especially when it comes to its influence on fashion. You can’t walk to class on a rainy day in Charlottesville without seeing 300 pairs of Bean Boots. When the cold weather hits, we bust out the Fratogonia fleeces. Frockets and croakies are spring staples. 

So what’s the next big thing? We are sure to find out once the semester gets underway; but there is a mostly unheard of, up-and-coming company that I can see making some noise.

Krass and Co. was founded in 2011 by Pierson Krass. He was tired of the boring and often uncomfortable athletic shorts that dominate the market, and he wanted something different. 

His shorts bring a balance of class, flash, and athletic style that are perfect for the Greek college student. We’re talking shorts in bright colors for guys and gals with embroidered lobsters, anchors, and other nautical motifs. Nothing screams “fratty” like nautical motifs. That and ‘Merica. And, of course, Krass has some American flag shorts too.     

These shorts are perfect for a UVA student, or any college student, because six out of seven days a week we don’t want to put in the effort to pull on real pants. Krass and Co. shorts give us a fratty and fashionable option in which we can roll out of bed, go to the gym, and then roll back into bed. 

Keep in mind, however, that these shorts aren’t all about the prints and the embroideries—they are high quality. I own two pairs myself (one with the aforementioned embroidered lobsters and one with bow-ties printed along the sides), and they are the most comfortable shorts I have ever put on. Whether you wear them to class or to work out, you’re going to look good.   

We know that sorority girls love to look casual and comfortable while still put together (see: Norts and spirit jerseys). Krass and Co. is a brand that embraces that balance in a way that no other company has done thus far. 

They are still a young company; but they provide great products, and it is clear that there is huge potential for growth. If it’s going to grow, it will all start be at college campuses nationwide (they are always looking for brand representatives to help promote the brand). 

Maybe they’ll be the next big thing; but even if they aren’t, I’ll still be rolling out of bed into class with my lobster shorts on.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
