Whiff Haberdashery Lives!

In mid-2016, The YWA Haberdasher’s Advisory Committee reactivated a fully-functional Whiffenpoof Haberdashery. Let the words of the Haberdasher speak for themselves.

Gentlemen Songsters:

Following a period of relative quiescence, your Haberdasher and his committee again invite your attention to an updated Haberdashery for our second century. Through an arrangement with a New Haven merchant, Campus Customs, acquisition of staples for the Gentleman Songster is convenient and easy – for you, for your family, for friends of the Whiffenpoofs.

The Haberdasher welcomes you back and invites your comments and suggestions:
