Here at New Haven, our students like many different clothing brands, accessories, and shoe brands. Shoes were the most talked about topic in a recent poll sent out.
The top favorite shoe brands at NHHS according to the poll are:
For many, though, it isn’t just about the brand. There are several favored shoes within each brand. For instance, senior Alex Trentmann’s favorite shoe is the Jordan Retro Ones. Square-toe boots are the kind Johnna Bloch, junior, favors. Jordan 12's "Chinese New Year" is the shoe Bernabe Ribera, junior, prefers.
When it comes to clothing brands, the top favorite among students is-- Nike.
According to students’ responses, some of the other favored brands include:
- North Face
- American Eagle
There are some students, however, that don’t shop based on a particular brand. They prefer to look for things that are comfortable or fit into a certain color or look.
As said by Callie Weatherly, senior, “I'm not too picky about brands of clothing. As long as I have something to wear that's comfortable, I'm happy.”
When talking about Columbia and North Face, Hannah Knoppe said, “I love the style of clothing both of these brands offer! I like the type of clothing they provide; they have high-quality sustainable outdoor gear and semi-sportswear clothing, while still looking casual. And they provide styles of clothing that aren't too flashy.”
Alex Trentmann, senior, simply says that Levi’s are comfortable and good-looking.
Other students have reported preferring particular brands for styles, price, selection, and many more.
When talking about accessories in the recent poll, the most used accessory is-- earrings. Other students reported liking rings, necklaces, and hats.
When talking about rings, Bernabe Ribera, junior, says he just “gotta flex.”
On the topic of earrings, Alexis Sidwell, junior, said, “I just always wear them, and once you have them in, you just forget about them.”
“It shows the boldness inside me and makes me more mature,” Keegan Wiedemann, freshman, responded when asked why hats were his favorite.
Destiney Quick, freshman, reported that a necklace with her nickname, Dez, on it was her favorite. When she was asked to explain why, she said, “It's cute, represents me, and it's what my dad gave me before he moved.”
Everyone has that one shirt or pair of pants that they love-- everyone has their own go-to outfit. In the recent poll sent to students, they were asked to share theirs.
Destiney Quick, freshman, shared that her favorite outfit is “shorts, a New Haven shirt, and my white high tops-- Converse of course.”
Alexis Sidwell, junior, simply said, “leggings and a T-shirt,” because she finds it “comfortable and sometimes cute.”
Alex Trentmann, senior, on the other hand, had a more exact go-to. He reported, “Jordan Ones, grey Levi skinny jeans, black Hanes tank top, red flannel over that, my hoodie with roses on the sleeves, five rings, my necklace with a cross, and a grey beanie” being his complete go-to outfit, because it “looks the best on me and is pretty comfy.”
Callie Weatherly, senior, said, “My go-to outfit is shorts and a loose T-Shirt in the warmer months. In the winter, my go-to would have to be leggings, fuzzy socks, and a warm sweater,” because it is “simple and sweet.”
Bernabe Ribera, junior, said, “[I] usually [wear] all black, but occasionally I'd switch it up to a white shirt.”
“A Dr. Pepper T-shirt, Levi jeans, a gray hat, and gray high tops,” Keegan Wiedemann, freshman, reported being his go-to, because “it is casual but stylish.”
As you can see, we have a very stylish group of kids here at New Haven High School. Although the debate over what shoe brand is best hasn’t been settled, we can surely say the students have great taste in clothing.
